Astym® (A-stim) treatment sets the standard for soft tissue therapy. It regenerates healthy soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.), and removes unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or movement restrictions. Astym® treatment has helped countless patients by restoring movement and getting rid of pain.

Astym® treatment is evidence-based, regenerative soft tissue therapy that quickly resolves tough musculoskeletal and scar tissue cases, resulting in consistent, successful patient outcomes.

Astym® treatment is regenerative soft tissue therapy which successfully resolves many difficult conditions, including chronic tendinopathies and movement restrictions/pain resulting from scar tissue. The Astym® process is non-invasive, has a short treatment course, and it is reliable and safe. The effectiveness and quality of Astym® treatment has been achieved through its groundbreaking scientific and clinical research, and the dedication of the Astym® researchers, clinical partners, and staff.

Astym® treatment safely, effectively and efficiently stimulates scar tissue to be resorbed by the body and regenerates damaged soft tissues. It is clearly superior in chronic conditions such as plantar fasciopathy, lateral epicondylopathy, chronic hamstring or groin injuries, tendinopathies and post-traumatic/post-surgical scarring — even when nothing else seems to work. It is also very effective on sprains, strains, and other acute and sub-acute soft tissue injuries. Some of the more common diagnoses that have demonstrated excellent clinical results when treated with the Astym® approach are:

General Conditions

Chronic tendinopathy Joint and muscle stiffness
Pain and stiffness associated with early degenerative joint disease

Specific Conditions

Achilles Tendinopathy
Anterior and Posterior Tibialis Tendinopathy
