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...

Astym therapy and the NFL

Thomas L. Sevier, MD, Astym medical directorNot long ago,  I was invited to speak to the NFL Players Association.  The NFL players specifically asked me to speak about Astym therapy, which has increased the  performance and extended the careers of NFL players, and I was invited to help educate those players who  had yet to experience the benefits of Astym treatment.

The NFL players who receive Astym treatment agree that they perform at significantly higher levels and recover more quickly and fully from injuries that would sideline an...

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...

Plantar Fasciitis: Triathlete Magazine recommends Astym therapy

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:

 For years, chronic plantar fasciitis was considered an inflammatory condition and treatments were aimed at reducing the inflammation which was thought to be the cause.  However, treatment aimed at reducing    inflammation to cure plantar fasciitis did not work well.  The lack of success of the standard...

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!

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...

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...

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.
