Astym therapy got me back in the swing of things

I was suffering from tennis elbow. It was limiting my day to day activities as well as decreasing my strength in my grip. This went on for about 4 months before seeking help from my physical therapist Julian Manrique at Focus Physical Therapy in Rancho Santa Margarita California. He recommended Astym treatment. I was so happy that within the first 3 treatments I began to feel pain free and started getting the strength back in my arm and hand. I was able to lift heavy objects and go back to...

The Simple Act of Sitting, Now Pain-Free due to Astym treatment

Astym treatment has absolutely exceeded my expectations.

I suffered from severe pain in the upper connection point of my left hamstring. The problem limited the time I could sit while attending meetings at work or visiting with friends over an excellent Oregon microbrew. I could only sit for 10-15 minutes before experiencing extreme pain in the back of my upper leg.

It took nearly a year of thinking I could fix the problem myself by staying active through cycling, walking, and careful...

Chronic Tennis Elbow: Astym therapy makes me feel like I have a new arm

For over two years I had suffered from tennis elbow. Suffering from this made it difficult to do my job of data entry without pain and with anything I did I had to wear a band on my arm to try to relieve the pain. Over two years I had received 6 cortisone shots that only gave some relief. I finally went somewhere new and was offered Astym treatment to help my arm. By the second treatment I could not believe the change in my arm pain and I no longer needed the arm band. I have completed the Astym...

I've been going for physical therapy and the Plantar fasciitis pain is gone. I've had this pain for some years and it has been very difficult to walk. Astym therapy really worked for me. I was just discharged today from physical therapy.

Pain pain go away, don't come back another day. Astym treatment relieved my heel pain.

Before coming to treatment, I was having a lot of pain in my right heel. So much that I could no longer do the things I enjoyed for exercise, such as walking at the park/within my neighborhood. I work in an office all day and every time I would get up, my heel hurt so much. I ignored this pain for a long time thinking I could work through the pain. I finally went to my Podiatrist and he prescribed physical therapy and in the course of treatment, I received Astym therapy. I was told it was like...

Amazing results on tennis injury from Astym treatment

I started playing tennis again and during my lesson I felt a pain in my calf that was unbelievable. I thought I had been shot in the leg - it was that intense. I went to the doctor and was put in a boot and told to elevate, ice, etc. I started PT with Astym therapy two days after my injury and have been amazed with the results. Pam Cloud, my Physical Therapist started using the Astym treatment and initially it was painful but I couldn't believe how quickly my leg started healing. I had friends...

Astym therapy is great! It has helped me multiple times!

I have had multiple muscle and inflammatory issues that have been eased and cured with Astym treatment. I have had elbow tendonitis and an ankle sprain worked on with Astym therapy and it helped so much. I would recommend the treatment to anyone with severe muscle issues. It is easy and non invasive and not painful at all.

Achilles tendonitis - two years of pain gone after Astym treatment!

I have suffered with pain for 2 years. Work and fun time with my husband was just too painful. I tried air casts and all the braces and insoles, but nothing helped!  Finally I tried Astym treatment, and in as little as 7 to 10 days I couldn't believe the pain was gone.

Astym therapy helped my ankle sprain

Several months ago while on a walk, I stepped off a curb and rolled my ankle causing me to fall to the ground. I was able to walk on it but over a period of a few weeks my ankle became stiff and caused me some discomfort. I was frustrated as I am fairly active and on my feet a lot with my job as a registered nurse. I mentioned it to our work comp physical therapist and he told me about Astym treatment, and thought it might help me. I made an appointment and saw Jon Schultz, PT, ECS, OCS, and exp...

Astym Therapy for Tibial Tendon Dysfunction

In April 2010, I developed severe tibial tendon dysfunction very abruptly in my left foot. I checked out surgical options and wasn't pleased that they would fuse bones. I decided to look for other options. I could barely walk & my painful foot continued to stiffen up. I found Astym therapy a few months into looking for options. The very 1st treatment loosened my foot significantly and improved my limp. I used Astym therapy to keep my foot in line while continuing my search. I found a different...

Astym therapy really improved my surgery results - not life or death, but a life improved!

I recently had a bunionectomy on my right, and then left foot. My surgeries went well, but one was much more invasive and complicated, as the bunion was worse (left foot). My right foot was done first and began to heal well immediately. My left foot, however, didn't heal as well. The swelling never went down as far as it should have and the mobility in my big toe joints never got to where it was expected to. My surgeon recommended physical therapy. I sought help at Work Systems Rehab and Fitness...

Scar Tissue Treatment in Knees

In June of 2005 I had a double total knee replacement in a hospital in New York. After surgery I went to a rehab hospital for approximately 9 days and did very poorly, compared to other patients. I was diagnosed with arthrofibrosis (excess scar tissue in both knees). I continued with outpatient therapy and did very poorly and was in a great deal of pain. I changed hospitals and surgeons and eventually had a revision done on each knee 5 months apart in 2008. My PT continued and was always the...

Astym Therapy is Like Wildfire Through a Running Community

At 49, I had finally started to admit I was going to have to give up running for good. After 13 years of low mileage running, I was to the point of such pain that I couldn't run a 1/2 mile without stopping and stretching. It turns out that isn't running. It's jogging between stretching.

I had completed almost a year of physical therapy a year prior with the most effort I've ever given to rehab. I did exercises 5x a week and I hadn't improved my pain much. I feared all the naysayers were right: I...

Astym therapy is good for my stems and got me running again!

A few facts for a little perspective!
1) I am and always have been athletic.
2) graduated massage therapy school in 1998
3) in 2009 I was diagnosed w/ a neurological disorder that at it's peak left me unable to stand longer than 20 minutes at a time before fainting.
4) one of the requirements to manage this health condition is cardio. My cardio of choice - running.

I started running for 3 minutes at a time. This was humbling. But I did what I could. I gradually got up to about 45 minutes at a...

Shotgun Arm: Astym treatment rocks!

I decided I needed a shotgun, so I did the reasonable thing and after purchasing one I signed up for safety classes. The instructor showed me how to handle the gun, and after a couple of hours of instruction he asked me to shoot the gun. I fired off a couple of shots without a problem and then on the third shot my arm felt the pain! That was the end of the lesson.The pain increased to the point of me not sleeping, and I was in intense pain for several months until my Orthopedic doctor sent me to...

A Miracle: chronic hamstring problem cured with Astym therapy

I had a chronic hamstring pull for over 25 years. As a runner, it was extremely difficult to run with any regularity. I visited a sports medicine physician and he recommended Astym therapy. I had six treatments and my chronic hamstring problem disappeared. This was three years ago and I've had no recurrence of any hamstring problem.

I Love Astym treatment! It helped my knee and neck.

I highly recommend Astym treatment. I was diagnosed with a pinched nerve in my neck which was causing pain in my neck, shoulder, elbow and wrist. I couldn’t do tasks such as blow drying my hair, use a curling arm, write for any length of time, use a computer keyboard or turn my neck to back up a car without pain. Having had a positive experience with Astym treatment after knee surgery, I knew I needed to head to my local physical therapist, Guy Wallace at Physical Therapy Associates. After...
