    ASTYM® TREATMENT

    What is ASTYM?

    ASTYM treatment is an evidence-based rehab program specifically designed to treat conditions and diseases of the tendons, as well as post-operative and post-injury scar tissue. It stimulates the body to regenerate and heal, decreases pain, enhances mobility, and keeps patients active. This process is specific and has proven effective through documented, consistent, desirable outcomes—results physicians and patients have come to expect and trust. Developed by a research team of physicians, therapists, and scientists, this protocol-driven system yields long-term results with short-term therapy, even when other treatments have failed. This innovative new treatment is now available in our area exclusively at OrthoWilmington.

    Which Conditions Does ASTYM Treat?

    • Tennis elbow
    • Golfer’s elbow
    • Carpal tunnel syndrome
    • Plantar fasciitis
    • Shin splints
    • Achilles tendinosis
    • IT band syndrome
    • Hamstring strain
    • Chronic ankle sprains
    • Knee pain
    • Hip pain
    • Scar tissue following surgery

    What is treatment like?

    • Before treatment can begin, a certified clinician must evaluate each patient to determine if ASTYM is an appropriate therapy for him or her.
    • An instrument is applied to the exterior of the affected area, and the patient will feel a roughness on the skin as the tissues are being stimulated to begin healing.
    • The therapist will prescribe a set of stretches and exercises to ensure appropriate and maximal healing. The typical course of therapy is relatively brief: 9-10 visits over 4-5 weeks.
    • Patients are encouraged to stay active with normal activities and sports while receiving therapy, so there is no need to take time off from doing what they love.
