What is the ASTYM™ System?

The ASTYM™ System is an advanced form of soft tissue mobilization which enables clinicians to effectively initiate remodeling and regeneration of dysfunctional tissue. The ASTYM™ System has also been proven to be a highly effective treatment for chronic tendinitis/tendinosis.

Treatment is performed with ergonomically designed instruments to allow rapid identification and effective treatment of areas exhibiting texture changes associated with soft tissue scar/fibrosis or chronic tendinopathy. Exercise and activity are then integrated to guide the body’s healing in the most advantageous manner possible. Continuation of work, athletic and recreational activities throughout the treatment process promotes optimal healing.

The ASTYM™ System is used in settings ranging from therapy clinics to hospitals to industrial rehabilitation. This proven treatment helps countless patients every day.

How does the ASTYM™ System work?

Adhesions and inappropriate fibrosis within soft tissue can result from trauma, surgery, immobilization or repetitive strain. The ASTYM™ System stimulates the breakdown of this dysfunctional tissue and allows functional restoration to occur. Scientific research, substantial clinical outcomes and clinical experience indicate the following process:

  • Soft tissue adhesions and resulting restrictions are identified and broken down.
  • Controlled microtrauma initiates a local healing response that leads to the resorption of inappropriate fibrosis or excessive scar tissue.
  • In chronic tendinopathies, doses of controlled microtrauma stimulate regeneration of the affected soft tissue.
  • Existing collagen is then remodeled and new collagen is influenced by a program of stretching, exercise and functional activities.
