Anyone had success with ASTYM treatments for tendinitis/tendinosis?
AstymŽ treatment is a therapy that regenerates healthy soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.), and eliminates or reduces unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or movement restrictions. AstymŽ treatment is highly effective and even works when other approaches routinely fail. One of the main reasons AstymŽ treatment is so much more effective than other treatments is that it was scientifically developed to resolve the underlying cause of soft tissue problems, rather than just trying to temporarily relieve symptoms. It is one of the most researched and effective therapy treatments available. AstymŽ treatment is unmatched in its ability to resolve tendinopathies, scar tissue problems, and other soft tissue dysfunctions. Doctors regularly prescribe AstymŽ treatment specifically for their patients, and elite athletes and knowledgeable patients seek out AstymŽ treatment for superior results. When your health and ability to stay active is at stake, only the best will do.
It looks like a form of massage that breaks down scar tissue and gets the regeneration process going.
I noticed recently that my left Achilles tendon is thickened and a little sore. Doesn't hurt when I move around but it doesn't feel healthy like the right one. I'm trying treatments at home, eccentrics and stretching, but if it doesn't improve in a couple months, I might try ASTYM. I've learned from others' painful experiences that Achilles tendon problems are nothing to wave off!
