Myofacial Acoustic Therapy

Aimed directly at your pain

Myofascial acoustic compression therapy is used to treat a broad spectrum of health and pain conditions to promote healing of chronic or acute musculoskeletal pain, poor circulation, limited range of motion or soft tissue sports injuries. The sound waves generated by the PiezoWave2 MyACT cannot be felt as they enter and pass through the body. They converge at a controlled point within the soft tissue to produce an intense, extremely short duration pressure pulse that delivers therapeutic treatment in areas difficult to reach by other methods.

Clinically focused pain relief

Pain is very complex and can sometimes seem to radiate from areas far from the actual generating source. This is referred pain and can make treatment more difficult.

Defining referred pain and the location of the originating pain trigging points can be done quickly and accurately using the PiezoWave 2 MyACT. Compromised tissue can be “flared” with MyACT which provides the clinician insight as to where to treat. The patient helps guide this process through verbal feedback to the clinician providing the treatment – remaining the clinician if the treatment is flaring their familiar pain.
