Astym® is a physical therapy approach that addresses problems which may develop as the result of trauma, surgery or overuse. Astym® is very effective in restoring movement and reducing pain from soft tissue injury or dysfunction, typically with a small number of treatments. Normal movement patterns are restored, pain is relieved and the ability to do things returns. It demonstrates success when other treatments have failed. With Astym®, patients often get better without surgery. With Astym®, patients stay active, workers stay on the job and athletes stay in their sport during treatment.

  • Post-surgical scarring
