Running is so important to me and after an Achilles Tendonitis injury, I became very frustrated. Resting it was not helping and not an option. Fortunately I was referred to Audrey Kennedy at First Choice Physical Therapy, who started me on Astym. Astym treatment with a series of stretching exercises worked to both regerate tissues and eliminate or reduce scar tissue. Astym allowed me to continue to run a few miles at a time during treatment. By the time my treatment was coming to an end, I was able to run in the Pittsburgh Half Marathon. I would tell anyone who is battling an injury to go see Audrey Kennedy at First Choice to see if Astym is an option. It’s the fastest most effective way to get back on your feet.
