Introducing the PiezoWave2 and Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyACT)™ with aptitude to pinpoint the pain and treat at the source
Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyACT) is widely used in the treatment of acute and chronic pain in muscles, tendons and joints. MyACT describes the use of acoustic waves to target tissue at varying depths to compress and manipulate tissue resulting in a focused and precise deep tissue massage. The results of the mechanical stimulus delivered by MyACT can lead to increased circulation and pain relief – key components in the healing process.
Advantages of Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy
- Locates and alleviates musculoskeletal pain
- Improves mobility
- Reduced Pain Medications
- Outpatient treatment
- Short therapy time of approx. 10-20 min.
Focusing in on your pain
The acoustic waves generated by the PiezoWave2 painlessly pass through the body and converge at a point deep within the soft tissue to produce an intense, extremely short duration compression event. The focused acoustic compression is translated to tissue to provide a massage with pin – point accuracy to the affected area.
Patient guided pain relief
The sources of pain are not always found in the area where the pain seems to be radiating from. This is clinically called referred pain. The distancing of the pain sensation from its source can make treatment more difficult. Diagnosis of referred pain and the recognition of the originating pain triggering points can be accomplished using the PiezoWave2. Abnormal musculoskeletal tissue can be “flared” with focused MyACT in order to define the areas that require treatment. This process of defining the origins of pain is guided by the patient through verbal feedback to the healthcare professional providing the treatment
