What is ASTYM

ASTYM (A-stim) stands for “a stimulation” of the body’s healing response, which results in the remodeling/resorption of scar tissue and the regeneration of degenerated tendons. Developed by a research team of physicians, physical therapists, and scientists, this protocol-driven system yields long-term results with short-term therapy, even when other treatments have failed.


The approach is a non-invasive therapy that works fast and consistently… no meds, no needles, no surgery. The ASTYM process is specific and has proven effective through documented, consistent, desirable outcomes – results physicians and patients have come to expect and trust.
