Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyACT), also known as PiezoWave, is a non-invasive and effective therapy technique that uses sound waves to stimulate and relax muscles, tendons, and other soft tissues in the body. This therapy has been used to treat a variety of conditions, including chronic pain, muscle stiffness, joint pain, and inflammation.
The MyACT device produces sound waves that penetrate deep into the tissues of the body, stimulating blood flow and promoting healing. The device uses a handheld applicator that is placed directly on the skin of the affected area. The sound waves then pass through the skin and into the soft tissues below, where they stimulate cellular activity and increase blood flow, break down scar tissue, reduce inflammation, and improve circulation.
Although it has remained relatively unknown to the general public, MyACT has been in use for over 20 years and is used by many professional sports teams, Johns Hopkins Medicine and a long list of medical professionals. It was also listed as one of the must have therapies in Practice Pain Managements review of physical medicine and rehabilitation treatment options.
In this post, we will discuss some of the benefits of MyACT.
Reduces Pain and Inflammation
MyACT is an effective therapy technique that can help reduce pain and inflammation in the body. This therapy works by increasing blood flow to the affected area, which helps to reduce inflammation and promote healing. The sound waves also stimulate the production of collagen, which helps to strengthen and repair damaged tissues.
Improves Range of Motion
MyACT can help improve your range of motion by relaxing tight muscles and reducing tension in the body. This therapy can also help to improve flexibility and mobility by increasing blood flow to the muscles and other soft tissues.
Speeds up Recovery Time
MyACT can help speed up recovery time after an injury or surgery. This therapy can help to reduce swelling and inflammation in the body, which can help to speed up the healing process. MyACT can also help to reduce pain and discomfort, which can make it easier to move and exercise.
MyACT is a non-invasive treatment that does not require surgery or medication. This therapy is a safe and effective way to treat a variety of conditions without the risk of side effects or complications.
MyACT is a cost-effective treatment option compared to other therapies such as surgery or medication. By reducing the need for more invasive treatments MyACT can reduce the out-of-pocket costs for patients.
Short Treatment Times
A MyACT therapy session typically lasts between 10-20 minutes, depending on the severity of the injury and the size of the affected area. Most patients have almost immediate relief from pain but to achieve lasting improvement it takes between 4-7 sessions. After the session, the patient may experience some mild discomfort or soreness in the treated area. However, this is typically temporary and will subside within a few days.
Treats a Variety of Conditions
MyACT can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including chronic pain, muscle stiffness, joint pain, and inflammation. This therapy can also be used to treat sports injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, and other soft tissue injuries.
In conclusion, Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy is a safe and effective therapy technique that can be used to treat a variety of conditions. This therapy can help to reduce pain and inflammation, improve range of motion, speed up recovery time, and improve overall well-being. If you are experiencing chronic pain or other soft tissue injuries, MyACT may be a viable treatment option for you. Contact Forest Creek Chiropractic to see if this therapy is right for you.
Here are just a couple of success stories using My ACT.
I’m an endurance athlete suffering from tendonitis and high ankle sprain. As a result I haven’t been able to run for nearly 6 weeks. After 3 sessions of MyACT therapy with Dr. Herb, I am running again. Slow and steady wins the race but without Dr. Herb and MyACT, I’d still be sidelined.
Since my diagnosis with a neurological disorder, I am constantly suffering from muscle cramps, spasms, tremors, and nerve pain. I am honestly amazed at how much my quality of life has improved after receiving MyACT therapy. After the first treatment I could take a full breath for the first time in years (was also recovering from broken ribs with a ton of scar tissue in the intercostal area.) With my constant tremors and cramps, my hands are always in pain. Again, after the first treatment on my hands and forearms, I couldn’t believe how much better my hands felt throughout the day, and when I first woke up in the morning as well. This therapy has been a big game changer. Now, I’m working out again, running again, and even training Jiu Jitsu (as much as my body allows!) Thank you Dr. Herb for making such a difference!
