Re: A Stem therapy

I think the brand name of the system and tools used is ASTEM. I thought they wanted to give me e-stem therapy, with the electricity gadget, but no, this is way different. Just a set of plastic tools that they use to scrape you very hard with, using cocoa sensoreder to lubricate your skin as they go. It's supposed to make your natural antibodies kick in and heal the painful area they are treating. Should see improvement after 3 - 4 visits. But it is a very painful treatment, and it gets worse each time because you are sore from the last visit. Good luck.

Ankle braces go on fast and the athlete does the applying so there is no waiting in line to be taped. Valuable trainer and coach time is saved when taping is eliminated. In an independent sudy of athletes Swede-O ankle braces were chosen as most comfortable.
