Astym

Five Star Physical Therapy offers ASTYM certified therapists. ASTYM system is an advanced form of soft tissue mobilization enabling clinicians to effectively initiate a new inflammatory process, initiating remodeling and regeneration of dysfunctional tissue. The use of ergonomically designed instruments optimizes rapid identification and effective treatment of damage tissue areas that exhibit texture changes associated with soft tissue scarring/fibrosis or chronic tendonopathy.

ASTYM maximizes results through a minimal number of treatments. Pain, loss of motion, and/or loss of function following surgery, injury, or trauma may benefit from the ASTYM system, including but not limited to: Trigger finger, carpal tunnel syndrome, lateral epicondylitis, medial epicondylitis, DeQuervain’s tenosynovitis, wrist sprains, shoulder pain, plantar fasciitis, chronic sprains, achilles tendinitis, shin splints, patellar tendinitis, hamstring strains, IT band syndrome.
