Idaho Spine & Sports Physical Therapy has Physical Therapists certified in ASTYM.  

ASTYM (Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization) is a therapy treatment that regenerates healthy soft tissues (muscles, tendons, etc.), and eliminates or reduces unwanted scar tissue that may be causing pain or movement restrictions. ASTYM treatment is highly effective and even works when other approaches routinely fail. One of the main reasons ASTYM is so much more effective than other treatments is that ASTYM was scientifically developed to resolve the underlying cause of soft tissue problems, rather than just trying to temporarily relieve symptoms. It is one of the most researched and effective therapy treatments ever used. ASTYM is unmatched in its ability to resolve tendinopathies, scar tissue problems, and other soft tissue dysfunctions. Doctors regularly prescribe ASTYM specifically for their patients, and elite athletes and knowledgeable patients seek out ASTYM for superior results. When your health and ability to stay active is at stake, only the best will do.

Generally, chronic soft tissue problems are due to scarring or degeneration. Soft tissues include muscles, tendons and ligaments. Both scarring and degeneration are common and can result in pain and limitations in movement.
