At HealthFirst Spine & Wellness, we are committed to stay on top of the latest and most effective treatments in order to offer our patients optimal pain relief. Therefore, we have made Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyACT®™) a part of our pain management program. MyACT®™ is widely used in the treatment of acute and chronic pain in muscles, tendons and joints.

What is Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy?

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.

What is MyACT®™ Good For?

MyACT is widely used in the musculosceletal system such as myofascial dysfunction and pain associated with triggerpoints. MyACT helps define where to treat – a unique feature not offered by other treatment modalities. Diagnosis of referred pain and the recognition of the originating pain triggering points can be accomplished using MyACT. 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.

MyACT®™ Effectively Treats Pain Resulting From:

  • Soft tissue strains
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Trigger points

Benefits of Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy Include:

  • Improves range of motion by eliminating adhesions
  • Improves circulation, alleviates pain and muscle tightness and promotes healing
  • Focused sound waves for the management of acute and chronic pain in muscles, tendons and joints
  • 3-5 treatments to achieve lasting improvement

The acoustic waves generated by the PiezoWave2 therapy sources converge at a point deep within the soft tissue to produce an intense, extremely short duration pressure wave. This focused acoustic compression force is translated to the surrounding tissue like an extremely precise therapeutic deep tissue massage.
