ASTYM™ Certified Clinic
ASTYM™ is a treatment that uses specialised tools applied across the skin to work on soft tissue, including the skin, muscles and tendons, ligaments, fascia and surgical scars. It is used when excessive scarring or tissue fibrosis has occurred and there is restricted soft tissue mobility. ASTYM™ is effective for decreasing pain and restoring movement.
Some of the diagnoses that can be helped by ASTYM™:
- Lateral or medial epicondylitis/osis (tennis elbow and golfer’s elbow, respectfully)
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- De Quervain’s Stenosing Tenosynovitis
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Shin splints
- Tendon pain and injury
- Patellar tendonitis
- Iliotibial band (ITB) syndrome
- Quadricep, hamstring, and calf muscle complex strains
- Overuse injuries
- Following surgery or trauma
The treatment is completed by using NASA-grade acrylic tools for soft tissue work. The application of the tool across the body stimulates tissue turnover, scar tissue resorption and regeneration of tendons and other soft tissue. It is typically done in conjunction with exercise to facilitate the effects.
