The use of Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization (ASTYM®) as a Conservative Treatment for Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome.

Abstract:
Soft tissue mobilization can normalize the altered tensile loads and biomechanical dysfunction associated with patellofemoral pain syndrome by promoting proper tracking of the patella within the trochlear groove. Augmented Soft Tissue Mobilization (ASTYM®) is a form of instrument-assisted soft-tissue mobilization that promotes the remodeling of soft tissue through controlled tissue damage to promote tissue healing, release adhesions, and improve tissue extensibility.
