ASTYM

ASTYM Rehabilitation Program

What is ASTYM Therapy?

ASTYM (A’-stim) stands for “a stimulation” of the body’s healing response, which results in the remodeling/resorption of scar tissue and the regeneration of degenerated tendons. The approach is a non-invasive therapy that works fast and consistently…no meds, no needles, no surgery.

The ASTYM process is specific and has proven effective through documented, consistent, desirable outcomes – results therapists and patients have come to expect and trust. Developed by a research team of therapists, physical therapists, and scientists, this protocol-driven system yields long-term results with short-term therapy, even when other treatments have failed. Only ASTYM-certified clinicians may perform the ASTYM treatment.

Commonly Treated Conditions

The following are some of the many diagnoses that demonstrate excellent clinical results when treated with the ASTYM system:
