Specialized Orthopedic Treatment in Albany and Schenectady NY

The ASTYM System

The ASTYM System is a rehabilitation treatment that provides a breakthrough in the way soft tissue injuries are treated. The system identifies and treats abnormal soft tissue, tapping into the body’s natural healing process to enable rapid return to activity, free from pain and limitation.

Research has shown that in many cases of chronic tendinitis, the tissue is not inflamed but is degenerative. Most treatments ignore these soft tissue dysfunctions, and therefore are not effective for treating the problems that result from them.

The remarkable success of the ASTYM System is due to the fact that it directly addresses dysfunctional soft tissue, the underlying source of many problems.

The McKenzie Method

The McKenzie Method is a reliable assessment process intended for all musculoskeletal problems, including pain in the back, neck and extremities (i.e., shoulder, knee, ankle etc.), as well as issues associated with sciatica, sacroiliac joint pain, arthritis, degenerative disc disease, muscle spasms and intermittent numbness in hands or feet. If you are suffering from any such issues, then a McKenzie assessment may be right for you!

Developed by world-renowned expert physiotherapist Robin McKenzie in the 1950s, this well-researched, exercise based approach of assessment, diagnosis and treatment uses a comprehensive and clinically reasoned evaluation of patients without the use of expensive diagnostic imaging (e.g. x-rays and MRIs).

The treatment principles of the McKenzie Method promote the body's potential to repair itself and do not involve the use of medication, heat, cold, ultrasound, needles, or surgery. McKenzie allows patients to learn the principles and empowers them to be in control of their own symptom management, which can reduce dependency on medical intervention.
