ASTIM Therapy

Posted by Sue Parks on 11/18/99 at 00:00 (012872)

Hello!
I have not been on this site for a while because I am finally rid of my PF! I had suffered for five months but finally, Physical Therapy cured me!! Specifically, there is a treatment called ASTIM in which the area is scraped with a hard plastic object. It is quite painful but it seems to break up the scar tissue and promote healing. I swear by this therapy since I had it done to my hamstring and it cured my sciatica problem too. It is a relatively new therapy but check it out with your Doctor/Physical Therapist if you can. I am totally painfree after months of limping around!!

What does the acronym ASTIM stand for?
