What is ASTYM?
"Astym® (A-stim) treatment sets the standard for soft tissue therapy. It regenerates healthy soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.), and removes unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or movement restrictions. Astym® treatment has helped countless patients by restoring movement, getting rid of pain," and improving overall muscle patterns.
What is Dry Needling?
Dry needling (DN) utilizes a very thin filament needle, which is similar to that used in acupuncture. However, DN is not considered acupuncture and is based on Western physiologic approaches. The needle is inserted into specifically designated locations depending on the individual and their injury. It is often times inserted into a trigger point, which will elicit a local twitch response to allow the muscle to relax. DN is thought to work by disrupting a reflex arc of contracted tissue as well as stimulating biochemical changes to allow improved blood flow and increased healing to the area. Furthermore, we are able to reach deeper tissues not accessible by hand. For more information, please click on the link to see various research articles. www.spinalmanipulation.org/research
