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.

Advantages of MyACT

  • Locates and alleviate musculoskeletal pain
  • Improves mobility
  • Non-invasive
  • Reduced pain medications
  • Short therapy time

How long does a course of treatment last?

  • An individual MyACT treatment takes between 10 and 20 minutes
  • Normally, 1-2 treatments per week are performed
  • A total of 4-7 treatments may be necessary to achieve lasting improvement
  • With acute pain, a single session is often successful

Are there known side- effects of MyACT?

Side-effects are limited to reddened skin and /or minor soreness in some cases.

What to expect during treatment

  • Your therapist will identify the treatment site or sites. They may mark these sites.
  • They will then apply a thin coat of coupling gel. This gel helps to translate the acoustic sound waves generated by the therapy head to the body.
  • The therapist will start the treatment at a very low output setting and increase the power to a level that you help define and is best suited for your condition. The output level and acoustic wave frequency rate may vary from location to location based on the depth and type of tissue being treated.
  • As the therapist moves the therapy source around the treatment area, you may feel a deep, dull ache that is familiar to you as being like the feeling your condition produces. The therapist will ask you to report when you feel the ache and will adjust the output of the device to the appropriate level for your treatment. They may also ask you to confirm that the therapy source is still creating the ache and may adjust the location of the treatment based on your feedback. If at any time the treatment becomes uncomfortable, mention this to the therapist and they will adjust the output level.
  • After the treatment is completed, the coupling gel will be removed and you can return to your normal activities. You may experience some minor aches or discomfort after treatment. It is not unusual for patients to notice flushed or reddened skin around the treatment site.
