ASTYM

The ASTYM System is a therapy approach that
addresses problems such as scarring, fibrosis and
degeneration that occur in soft tissues. These
problems may develop as the result of trauma,
surgery or overuse. The System is effective for new
injuries as well as chronic, nagging conditions.
The ASTYM System uses instruments along the
surface of the skin to locate these problem areas and
start the body’s healing process. As the body heals,
exercise and activity help guide the healing which
allows you to return to activities without pain and
limitation. The success of the ASTYM System is
documented for a wide variety of diagnoses
and many times it helps patients where other
treatments have failed.

The ASTYM System is used in settings ranging
from therapy clinics to hospitals to industrial
rehabilitation. This proven treatment helps
countless patients every day.

What can you expect?

  • Clinicians certified in the ASTYM System will use the
    instruments to treat not only painful areas, but also other
    problem areas that may contribute to your condition.
  • During treatment, you may feel areas that are “rough” or
    “bumpy.” These are the areas that need to be addressed.
  • Over the course of treatment you will notice that as
    these rough areas smooth out, your pain will decrease
    and your function will increase.
  • Following treatment, you may notice some bruising and
    soreness to touch in areas that were rough. This shows
    that the body is addressing the abnormal tissue through
    the natural healing process.
  • You will receive a custom-designed stretching and
    exercise program to help your body rebuild healthy
    tissue and allow you to return to an active lifestyle.
  • Most patients experience a significant change in
    their symptoms in the first 3-4 visits.
