A.S.T.M

Posted by Bill on 3/28/99 at 00:00 (005802)

I have a friend who is a PT from Indianapolis IN who is doing a study on a new technique called Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization (ASTM). It's a technique that helps break down scar tissue. The following is a website that explains the technique. http://www.performancedynamics.com/new/astm.htm .

She is actually performing this technique on many patients and has found to help in healing PF. Sounds interesting. I'm looking for someone trained in this area where I live.

This sounds like deep muscle massage. Deep muscle massage is effective therapy because it physically breaks toxins loose from within the massaged area and 'stirs' them so the body can remove them.
