“My husband and I were in a car accident in June of 2016.
I had a fractured hip, fracture near my knee, knee reconstruction,and nerve damage in my leg causing my foot to have limited movement. I started slowly with physical therapy in early November at Jefferson County Hospital in Fairfield, Iowa. As my therapy progressed my therapist, Matt Wickert, suggested that I start Astym therapy. He explained that David Kreuter, a therapist assistant certified in Astym treatment, would start the program to help the pain in my leg due to scar tissue.This treatment would help my numbness as well as my balance issues.
A few days after the third Astym treatment, my balance has remarkably improved. I see steady improvement, where I don’t use a cane anymore and I can rise to a standing position without holding onto furniture. My fear of falling is gone. I am able to walk now with much improved mobility and the pain near the surgical site is almost gone. Thanks t
