Our Therapy Techniques
The ASTYM system is a rehabilitation treatment that provides a breakthrough in the way soft tissue injuries are treated. The System identifies and treats abnormal soft tissue, tapping into the body's natural healing process to enable rapid return to activity, free from pain and limitation.
Some of the diagnoses that respond well to the ASTYM System include:
- Post-surgical scarring
- Plantar fasciitis
- Lateral epicondylitis
- SI and low back pain
- Chronic ankle sprains
- Post-traumatic fibrosis
- Patellar tendonitis
- Wrist sprains
- Shin splints
- IT band syndrome
- Achilles tendonitis
- Muscle strains
Scientific research and substantial clinical experience indicate that the ASTYM System improves dysfunctional tissue through the following process:
A clinician certified in the ASTYM System uses patented instruments to evaluate the tissue, locating dysfunctional soft tissue through the resonance of the instruments.
The treatment / stimulation from the instruments initiates a healing response. Research indicates that there is an increase in fibroblast recruitment and activation following treatment with the ASTYM System instruments.
As the healing process progresses, a customized exercise program is prescribed to encourage optimal tissue healing and collagen remodeling.
Throughout treatment, patients are encouraged to stay active in their work, sport and daily activities. This facilitates tissue healing in a functional pattern and encourages the tissue to remodel in a way to support the demands of the patient's activities, which decreases the risk of re-injury.
