Astym

Considering Astym* Treatment

Until now, the options for treating tendon pain and soft tissue problems were limited and not very effective. Often, people could suffer for months, even years, with pain and movement restrictions due to soft tissue dysfunction. Finally, a solution is now available, highly effective and clinically proven. Perry Memorial Hospital Medical Rehabilitation Service has therapists Jim Scarpaci, Courtney Engel and Jennifer Heckroth who have undergone the intensive training and study to become certified in Astym* treatment, a new therapy scientifically developed to target the actual cause of the pain rather than just the symptoms. Astym treatment is unmatched in its ability to resolve tendinopathies, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, Achilles and patellar tendonitis, scar tissue problems and other soft tissue dysfunctions. 

Astym treatment is the regenerative medicine of therapy and is designed to restore soft tissues at a cellular level. It rebuilds and heals the soft tissues of the body through regeneration of healthy soft tissues (muscle tendons, etc.) and removal of unwanted scar tissue which may be causing pain or movement restrictions. Best of all, Astym therapy does not involve injections or surgery. Astym therapy has helped countless people by restoring their movement, getting rid of their pain and giving them back their lives.

The Astym process stimulates the body to regenerate and remodel tissues, therefore there are usually no restrictions on your activity while receiving Astym treatments.
