ASTYM is a therapy that regenerates healthy soft tissue and reduces unwanted tissue adhesions that can cause pain or movement restrictions. ASTYM treatments are effective in resolving tendinopathies, scar tissue problems, and other soft tissue dysfunctions. An ASTYM certified provided guides instruments firmly along your skin following the direction of the muscle, tendon or ligament. Evolve Physical Therapy and Sports uses the tools to detect abnormal tissue and to isolate the dysfunctional area. Treatments can be somewhat uncomfortable and can cause bruising. However, the break down of dysfunctional tissue can cause bruising and forces your system to reabsorb the unwanted tissue and lay down healthy tissue.
