Did you know, according to the CDC, at least 3 million older adults visit the ER for fall-related injuries every year?* Factors such as lower body weakness, difficulty walking, poor balance, and foot pain can all increase a person’s risk of falling but are preventable with proper rehab therapy.
Want to help your patients stay safe and active? Check out these 5 tips to decrease your patients’ chance of falling!
“Scar tissue formed after surgery or injury often ends up being painful and limiting movement for patients. Although there are a number of possible treatments, these options are expensive and often have only limited success. According to Drs. Michael Mont, Morad Chughtai, Jared Newman, and their colleagues, a revolutionary new approach is now available. Called Astym therapy, the new method works by stimulating the body’s own mechanisms of regeneration for soft tissues and re-absorption of scar tissue. Crucially, after treatment, patients report significant improvements in mobility and pain relief…“
Your Astym®-certified therapist went through intensive training to become an expert in treating soft tissue dysfunctions and scar tissue. With Astym therapy, you’re an active participant in your recovery. Here’s what to expect during your first visit:
I was previously 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.
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 athlete who is not receiving Astym treatment. Continue reading NFL Players Embrace Astym therapy→
Elite Athletes will be relying on Astym® therapy to help achieve their highest and best performance in Rio. Certified Astym providers will be on hand supporting their athletes to increase athletic performance.
Astym® therapy resulted from a groundbreaking research endeavor undertaken by a multidisciplinary research team including well-known scientists, therapists, and physicians, with support from major universities and hospitals. In this Astym Research Project, the team had the unique advantage of being able to combine knowledge of physiology, cellular biology, and emerging scientific discoveries into the development of a whole new approach in the treatment of soft tissue dysfunction.Continue reading Astym therapy vs. IASTM: What’s the difference?→
Astym therapy is the perfect solution for accountable care: it resolves common conditions faster and at less cost than other treatment options. In addition, it also resolves conditions that other treatments cannot. All this stems from its research base.
Astym® treatment is perhaps the only therapy approach that was produced through rigorous scientific development: from theory through basic science investigation to clinical study and practice. Theories regarding mechanisms of action for Astym treatment were developed based on the foundation of recent histologic research identifying the primarily degenerative nature of tendinopathies, and the investigations into the use of cellular mediators, growth factors and related products to assist in the healing and regeneration of tissues.

I work in an extremely fast paced production facility. I grab and pinch material all day long. My hands would go numb in the evenings and throb at night. Years went by and I dealt with it, but the sleepless nights, constant pain, being a grouchy wife, mother, and co-worker finally led me to do something. I thought about finding a new job, ( I overall like my job and the pay is excellent) but was unsure. Once I started to receive treatment I couldn’t wait to go. It was uncomfortable at first and I was skeptical. It was the good kind of pain. I went twice a week for about six weeks, then down to once a week. Two months later I still have occasional numbness and pain, but I am extremely HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY!!!!! Highly recommend.

I was in a motor vehicle accident in October of 2013. I had my left femur shattered in over 30 pieces. I had surgical repair of the fracture. As a result I have a vertical scar running from the top of my left thigh to my left knee. The scar tissue was lumpy, tight, and sensitive to the touch. My therapist suggested we try Astym treatment to help the situation. After having had twelve sessions with the Astym therapy I am very happy to report the scar is not lumpy anymore and my scar is not sensitive to the touch. I can now sleep on my left side again, thanks to Astym treatment.
