ASTYM treatment is a physical/occupational therapy treatment that regenerates healthy soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.), and eliminates or reduces unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or movement restrictions.

 ASTYM treatment is non-invasive, which means there are no injections or incisions. ASTYM treatment stimulates tissue turnover, scar tissue resorption, and the regeneration of tendons, muscles and other soft tissue structures.

ASTYM treatment is typically provided twice weekly for four to five weeks (about 9 total treatment sessions) and is done in conjunction with eccentric loading, stretching, and functional exercises. Continuation of work, athletic and recreational activities throughout the treatment process promotes optimal healing.

What is different about ASTYM?

  • ASTYM is very effective in restoring movement and reducing pain from soft tissue injury or dysfunction.
  • Patients stay active, workers stay on the job, and athletes stay in their sport during treatment.
