Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization (ASTYM) in Aurora, IL
Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization (ASTYM) is now a standard for soft tissue physical therapy to regenerate healthy muscles, tendons, etc. and remove unwanted scar tissue. Your Physical Therapist at Advantage Physical Therapy can stimulate your body’s own natural healing response to reduce pain and movement restrictions.
This non-invasive treatment uses ergonomically designed hand-held instruments to initiate the stimulation necessary for tissue remodeling. A special set of instruments are used on the patient, instead of the physical therapist’s hands, to locate and treat unhealthy soft tissue. It is especially effective in removing scar tissue that restricts movement.
ASTYM is often recommended to treat chronic soft tissue issues, particularly when unresponsive to other treatment modalities.
Your physical therapist at Physical Therapy Advantage will begin with a thorough assessment to determine how Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization (ASTYM) can support your healing. Call today for more information and to book an appointment. Reduce pain and increase mobility with ASTYM!
