Have you been having pain or ongoing tightness and restrictions?  Astym may be a good option for you!  Astym is utilized for the removal of scar tissue and the regeneration of healthy soft tissues (muscles, tendons) to ultimately help with restoring normal movement and function.  Many individuals would benefit from Astym therapy and it is utilized to treat a variety of pathologies such as plantar fasciitis, achilles tendonitis, ITB syndrome, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow along with many more.  If you have any questions or interest in this treatment please reach out to Ashley with Smith Physical Therapy and Running Academy for more information (or you can see our upcoming video which shows a demonstration!!)
