ASTYM System at Release Physical Therapy

What is the ASTYM system?

The ASTYM system is an evidence-based rehabilitation process designed to effectively treat chronic tendon disorders, scar tissue and fibrosis. The goal of the ASTYM treatment is to stimulate the body’s healing response, resulting in the resorption and remodeling of scar tissue and the regeneration of degenerative tendons. The effective therapy incorporated a customized program of stretching and exercise, which positively influences the alignment of the new collagen.

What else should I know about the ASTYM system?

You should be informed that you will be receiving a treatment that will help stimulate a healing response rather than just treat your symptoms. You may experience some soreness and/or mild bruising following treatments initially; however, this rapidly improves as the healing progresses. You are expected to carry out simple stretching exercises at home, your compliance is essential for maximizing treatment results.
