ASTYM, a Tool for Better Running
If you are a runner, the last thing you want to hear is that you must stop running. Injuries often sideline runners.
ASTYM, or augmented soft tissue mobilization, is a physical therapy treatment that regenerates healthy soft tissues. This non-invasive treatment provides a great option for runners and enables them to keep running.
- ASTYM decreases scar tissue and muscle restrictions that can lead to injury.
- ASTYM stimulates your body’s healing mechanisms to repair injured tissue.
- ASTYM re-models muscle tissue to withstand the strain of running.
In addition to being a great tool to treat running injuries, ASTYM can also be used proactively to reduce the risk of running injury.
