NFL Players Embrace Astym therapy

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

What is Astym treatment?

Astym treatment is a physical therapy treatment that regenerates healthy soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.), and eliminates or reduces unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or movement restrictions.

The Answer To Accountable Care

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.

Astym® Therapy Presenting at 2016 Annual World Cancer Congress

The recent peer-reviewed research on Astym therapy improving function and range of motion in breast cancer survivors is getting a lot of attention.  Claire Davies, PT, PhD CLT-LANA, the lead researcher and main author, has been invited to present at Annual World Cancer Congress taking place next month. This research demonstrates the impressive effectiveness of Astym therapy methods and protocols in breast cancer survivors.

The Astym therapy methods and protocols are evidence based and scientifically developed.  Medical research consistently demonstrates the safety and effectiveness of Astym therapy methods, and also shows how Astym therapy is key in successful treatment following breast cancer treatment.

Only Astym-certified clinicians offer this therapy, and they are all listed in the Find A Provider directory the astym website.  In order to become certified in Astym therapy, clinicians undergo intensive training  and testing.

Astym® Therapy Shown Effective in the Treatment of Tennis Elbow – Again!

More support for Astym therapy has just been published.  A large, randomized clinical trial showing Astym therapy to be highly effective for tennis elbow, and also demonstrating Astym therapy’s impressive efficacy on recalcitrant tennis elbow, has just been published in a peer-reviewed journal.

This large scale clinical trial demonstrating the effectiveness and safety of Astym therapy gives even more reason for referral sources and patients to seek out certified Astym providers.  Large controlled clinical trials are very important contributions to the literature, and we are pleased that Astym therapy has joined the rare, elite rank of treatments that have quality clinical trials supporting effectiveness and safety.

Astym therapy is one of the most researched and effective interventions available – it is unmatched in its ability to resolve a wide range of soft tissue dysfunctions.

Thoracic Knots Gone Away! Astym therapy helped my neck and back tightness/pain

I have battled with thoracic and cervical pain and tightness for several years. I finally had the physical therapists at Madison Park PT work on my upper back with Astym therapy. What a difference! I have so much freedom in my range of motion and can go several days without the feeling of knotted up muscles. It has allowed me to go on long backpacking trips without pain and to not be consciously thinking about my spine during my daily life. Astym therapy is truly awesome.
