Treatment for Tendonitis:

Our doctors use ASTR® to relieve tendonitis pain and symptoms. This approach helps patients avoid surgery:

  • Reduce inflammation and speed up the heeling process using Cold Laser Therapy
  • Advanced Soft tissue Release (ASTR®) to release soft tissue restriction
  • ASTR® Tools: Our doctors use a variety of ASTR tools to release myofascial restriction and scar tissue, which are very common with tendonitis.
  • Releasing muscle trigger points and hypertonicity: it is very common with tendonitis that the muscle starts to spasm or tighten as a protective mechanism. Using the ASTR® maneuvers, patients can experience relief from muscle hypertonicity.
  • Special exercise program to restore normal movement
