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.
