ASTYM (Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization)

Physical Therapists use a number of tools and techniques to decrease pain and restore function. One of the most effective is ASTYM which stands for Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization.

Ongoing pain can be the result of unhealthy tissue. ASTYM directly addresses this dysfunctional soft tissue, which in many cases is the underlying source of many problems!  

ProActive Physical Therapy has one of the few experts in Tucson and Oro Valley who are well trained in this amazing treatment technique.  To schedule an appointment with Dr. DeRosa please contact our Thornydale clinic at 520-742-7107.
