Impairment from surgery & radiation: Astym therapy was my last hope, and it worked!

As the typical story is told, hormone positive breast cancer can return up to about 25 years. Really? Indeed. I experienced a new primary cancer 10 years after the original lumpectomy and radiation. BEWARE! Continue reading Impairment from surgery & radiation: Astym therapy was my last hope, and it worked!

Astym Therapy Helped After Total Hip Replacement

Astym therapy was part of my recovery treatment and I was amazed at how quickly the old scar tissue became a thing of the past! I would highly recommend this for post surgery aftercare…

RELIEF!!! Astym therapy was the answer for my knee pain.

I injured my knee 3 years ago due to a fall. I ended up doing a year and a half of regular physical therapy. It was ok, but I end in a surgery. After the surgery, my physical therapist, Kayla, introduced me to Astym therapy. At first I was hesitant, but after the very first treatment I felt immediate relief! My knee felt better than it had even before the injury. I feel like Astym therapy sped up my healing. Fast forward a year after my surgery and I re-injured my knee. We went straight to Astym therapy and my progress has been phenomenal! Astym  therapy has truly been a God send for me!!!

Life After Breast Cancer Can Be Better Than Ever

After a cancer diagnosis, the brain often switches to survival. Even after successful treatment, it can be hard to move past the lingering fears and see that there is more to life than just survival. This is the experience of Gloria Harnack, a survivor of breast cancer Continue reading Life After Breast Cancer Can Be Better Than Ever

I Love Astym therapy

Astym therapy helped decrease the sensitivity in and around my scar tissue. It helped my ability to raise my arms over my head. The scar tissue is now flat with my skin rather than being adhered underneath.

I Can Walk Again

I’ve suffered from plantar fasciitis for over 4 years. One doctor put me in a walking boot for 6 months. It helped, but then a couple years later both feet were affected. My mobility went downhill and I had surgery in September 2017. The surgeon didn’t care about me enough to continue treating me and I finally started physical therapy. Continue reading I Can Walk Again

Astym therapy really worked

Yes this works! Three knee surgeries, three years in a row. First year total replacement, 22 weeks of rehab and a manipulation, still horrible swelling and loss of motion. Next year knee revision, again many weeks of rehab, loss of motion, muscle cramps and knee seizes. The 3rd year another total replacement. Continue reading Astym therapy really worked

Massive Rotator Cuff Tear

I had a massive rotator cuff tear and underwent Superior Capsular Reconstruction. After the surgery I was experiencing severe pain caused by scar tissue build up and this was impeding my recovery. My therapist recommended using the Astym treatment. The treatment was initially very painful and caused bruising in the treatment area. However, after a few sessions my pain had been greatly diminished. I stuck with the Astym treatment and now my pain is nearly gone.

Astym Therapy Got Me Back in the Game and More

TOPS Physical Therapy is the best clinic I have gone to!

I have played basketball for over 15 years (from leagues, travel ball, high school and at the collegiate level), throughout those years I have suffered many bumps and bruises along the way. With that being said, I have gone to a lot of clinics and no place gave me the type of care TOPS did!

In 2015 I suffered a season-ending hip injury. The TOPS team went above and beyond to help me through one of the most challenging experiences I faced as an athlete. They helped me through every step of the way (going to office visits, and etc). By far the best care I have ever experienced.

While in their care, they had me on a great exercise program that really helped me get my strength back. Another thing they did was use Astym instruments, which if you asked me while they were doing it I would say it is not a fun time. But, the use of the instruments helped aid my recovery process! The use of Astym in my rehab assisted with breaking up scar tissue around my scars, tightness, and increased blood flow to that area. Astym also helped with myositis osscificanas (I had to look that up)! From allergy shots, I developed two small round hard bumps in my butt. Astym was able to break that up and get me back to normal.

I love Astym and TOPS Physical Therapy

Finally Some Relief! After surgery, Astym therapy relieved pain and increased my range of motion

I had a knee replacement in Jan 15 that did not go well causing constant pain and swelling requiring arthroscopy in Jun 15 to remove scar tissue. The joint was too loose and in Feb 17 I had to have a “Revision” or second replacement. Scar tissue has apparently been hindering my range of motion and causing increased pain.
