Our Willow Park location now offers ASTYM treatment!
ASTYM treatment is a physical/occupational 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.
ASTYM treatment is non-invasive, which means there are no injections or incisions. Instruments are applied topically (on top of the skin) to locate dysfunctional (unhealthy) tissue, and to transfer mild to moderate pressure to the underlying soft tissue structures. ASTYM treatment stimulates tissue turnover, scar tissue resorption, and the regeneration of tendons, muscles, and other soft tissue structures.
ASTYM treatment is typically provided twice weekly for four to five weeks (about 9 total treatment sessions) and is done in conjunction with eccentric loading, stretching, and functional exercises. Continuation of work, athletic, and recreational activities throughout the treatment process promotes optimal healing.day.
