Astym® therapy targets the cause of pain--not just the symptoms. It is the regenerative medicine of therapy, designed to restore soft tissues at a cellular level. Astym therapy regenerates healthy soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.) and removes unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or movement restrictions. Astym therapy helps patients restore their movement, getting rid of their pain and giving them back their lives.

McFarland Clinic has providers on staff that have undergone intensive training and education to become Astym-certified. Visit the Astym website and watch this Astym video for more information.
