What is ASTYM Therapy?

ASTYM therapy stands out as a regenerative treatment, designed to rejuvenate and repair soft tissues in the body.

Unlike conventional methods, ASTYM therapy targets the underlying causes of pain and mobility issues, not just the symptoms. The process involves the use of specialized instruments that glide along the skin, detecting and treating problem areas. This non-invasive technique stimulates the body’s natural healing processes, encouraging the removal of scar tissue and the regeneration of healthy soft tissues.

From tendonitis and plantar fasciitis to post-surgical scars, ASTYM therapy has shown remarkable results in treating a wide range of conditions. At Saratoga PT and Sports Med, we’re excited to offer this innovative therapy as part of our comprehensive care plans, tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient.

Benefits of ASTYM Therapy

ASTYM therapy is celebrated for its numerous benefits, making it a preferred choice for individuals seeking relief and recovery.

Mobility and Flexibility

One of the most significant advantages is its ability to enhance mobility and flexibility. By breaking down unwanted scar tissue and encouraging the growth of healthy soft tissues, patients often experience improved range of motion and decreased stiffness in affected areas. Pain reduction is another key benefit, with many patients reporting a noticeable decrease in discomfort after just a few sessions. This can be particularly life-changing for those who have been living with chronic pain.

Enhanced Recovery

Additionally, ASTYM therapy promotes faster recovery, enabling patients to return to their daily activities, work, or sports more quickly than with traditional treatments.
