Hand pain from repetitive work is reversed with Astym therapy

I work at a chair manufacturing company. My job involves use of a staple gun, tag gun, air nozzle for inspection of hundreds of chairs per day. I had pain on and off for years that I tolerated. On March 25 the pain became severe and I was sent to the dr on 26. Therapy started the 27. She used astym treatment immediately. I felt relief after the 3 rd time. My hand was almost better than it has been in years.

Thankful for Astym therapy - it really helped my knee after arthroscopic surgery

I recently had arthroscopy surgery on my right knee. Surgery itself went extremely well but several weeks after the surgery I was still experiencing instability, pain, discomfort (even with physical therapy.) Seeing my frustration the wonderful therapist that were helping decided to give Astym treatment a try. By the second session I was able to drive pain free to Charlotte, stop taking my anti inflammatory medicine, and walk distance without having to look for something to hold on to. I...

Astym Treatment relieved my tight calves!

I have always had very tight calves. The past few years I have felt it getting worse whether I'm playing soccer, going on a run, or even standing at a bag boxing or kickboxing. Since Astym therapy, doing all these activities have become much easier. Running being the main thing I wanted to improve. I used to hit the mile mark and have to stop and stretch because my calves were so tight and painful. I can now run a mile without feeling that pain, it's awesome! It's nice to be able to enjoy...

The Astym Cure took care of my aching bicep

About a year and a half ago I fell and severely bruised my bicep muscle arm. I didn't think much of it at the time but as time progressed so did the stabbing and aching pain. The doctor took x-rays, etc showing nothing. I had two rounds of steroid shots over the course of a year and they did eliminate the stabbing pains. But, day after day, this deep aching continued. I took every over the counter pain relief pill I could find but it barely touched the pain. The doctor said there wasn't anything...

Astym therapy helped my heel and tendon pain

Been suffering with heel and tendon pain for over one year. Had cortisone shots in tendon heel and inside of foot to calm down pain. Doc suggested therapy to stretch out and strengthen muscles and tendons. Was given Astym therapy and it seemed to help. Felt burning sensation after some sessions, but never lasted very long.

Getting Better: Astym therapy is giving me relief from my leg pain

Since 2008 I've had two back surgeries, a hip replaced and a broken elbow.

I was having very bad pain in my left leg; leg was also dragging and I started falling. I was never sure from day to day if I would be able to walk.
Had my left hip and knees checked by the surgeon who performed my right hip surgery. Left hip wasn't ready to be replaced (30% worn down), knees are one on bone on outside.
Spinal surgeries checked OK in ex-rays. I started doing exercises at home and PT at a doctor's office....

Achilles tendonitis took me off the tennis court, Astym treatment got me back on

I was devastated when I couldn’t play my favorite sport, tennis or do water aerobics because of Achillies tendonitis. I went to Frank Romney, PT, Astym-certifed,  and he performed a few sessions of Astym treatment on my heel and wow! I was back on the court hitting that yellow ball again and able to do all activities again. That is saying a lot of this 80 year old. Thanks to Frank and Astym treatment.

Chronic plantar fasciitis finally stops hurting after Astym therapy

When I started coming to Diamond Physical Therapy in late November 2013, I was unsure if I could really be cured of my plantar fasciitis. I had already been wearing my orthodics for several months and I just couldn't get over that last hump. They began doing this therapy called Astym treatment, which I had never heard of before. It was a little uncomfortable at first but suddenly my feet stopped hurting all together. I understand that not all patients are cured 100%. I am so excited that I will...

Post-surgery stiff ankle gets better from Astym therapy

I had surgery on my ankle to have a ligament repaired and scar tissue cleaned out. After my operation I was very stiff and swollen and I knew that I did not want to go through surgery again. So, it was important to make sure more scar tissue did not built up and also to make sure my ankle stayed strong. A few weeks after surgery, I began physical therapy again. They informed me that they wanted to start Astym treatment. I was nervous that it would hurt and at first it did. Although it...

Triathlete magazine discussed chronic plantar fasciitis and how to treat it (“A Heel Up”), and recommended Astym therapy to resolve chronic plantar fasciitis, or plantar fasciosis.  Here is why:

To walk or not to walk: Astym treatment is the answer

After months of walking with discomfort turning into constant pain, my Doctor prescribed physical therapy to treat plantar fascial fibromatosis. Although not the most pleasant of treatments, coupled with ultra sound and stretching it was by far the most effective part of the therapy. After weeks of treatment, I now walk with no pain or discomfort!
