If your condition includes soft tissue degeneration, scarring, or fibrosis, ASTYM can boost your body’s natural capacity for healing.

ASTYM is “a stimulation” of the body’s healing response, which results in the remodeling/resorption of scar tissue and the regeneration of tendons. This non-invasive therapy works fast and consistently, without medication, needles or surgery, yielding long-term results with short-term therapy, even when other treatments have failed. ASTYM treatment uses specific instruments along the surface of the skin to help facilitate the body’s healing process and return to activites without pain or limitation. Only ASTYM-certified clinicians may perform the ASTYM treatment.

Some diagnoses that show excellent clinical results when treated with the ASTYM system:

  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • Ankle sprain
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • DeQuervain’s tenosynovitis
  • Golfer’s elbow (medial epicondylosis)
  • Groin sprain/strain
  • Hamstring strain
  • Impingement/tendinopathy of the rotator cuff
  • IT band syndrome
  • Joint contractures
  • Jumper’s knee (patellar tendinopathy)
  • Overuse injuries
  • Pain or loss of motion following surgery or trauma
  • Plantar fasciopathy/heel spurs
  • Scar tissue/adhesions
  • Shin splints
  • Tennis elbow (lateral epicondylosis)
  • Thumb/finger sprain
  • Wrist sprain
