ASTM

Posted by Penny T. on 8/14/01 at hrmin (056763)

I just talked with a friend, who is also a Physical therapist, who has had PF for 10 years. He recently had augmented soft tissue mobilization,ASTM, treatment and says the results were incredible. (This procedure is performed by a PT.) On a scale of 1-10 his pain is usually about a 6 with often times a 10, but now is virtually pain free. He can even walk without shoes again.
My question is this, what have you heard about this treatment and how long do the results last. (He has to have 6 treatments in all.) Could this treatment cause injury to the affected area?
Thank you, Penny T.
