Have you ever had an area massaged or treated with any modality but it just seemed like the treatment wasn't quite getting it? Well now we have a way to not only treat those areas but also find out if we are actually treating the problem area. Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy not only treats the problem, but it also finds the problem!
PiezoWave – MyACT is Acoustic Compression Therapy which uses sound waves to REMODELING TISSUE AT THE CELLULAR LEVEL by addressing a large variety of conditions including scar tissue, calcification, tendinopathy, bursitis, capsulations, plantar fasciitis, chronic pain and so much more.
PiezoWave technology is based off the same conceptual technology as lithotripsy to break up kidney stones just lower more pinpoint energy. A good way to explain it is to think of a submarine at the bottom of the ocean They cannot see in front of them so they send out sonar waves (sound waves) to find anything that may be in front of the submarine and when it finds something it sends a signal back to the sub. This is the same idea or concept with MyACT.
The patient does not feel anything during treatments when treating are over healthy/hydrated tissue. The patient will feel a dull aching feeling when it is passed over any compromised tissue making it easy to know that the correct spot is located so the soft tissue injury can be treated directly.
One of the many unique things about the PiezoWave is that a biomechanical feedback from the patient while doing the treatment helps the therapist to you know that the correct spot has been located. When the compromised tissue has been found, the patient feels a dull aching feeling almost like a toothache or pushing on a bruise. At this point the patient is asked on a scale of 1 -10 what their pain level is. The patient should want be around 5, 6, or 7. If the patient feels 8,9, or 10, unless they can tolerate, it the therapist would move off the injury site and come back in 30 seconds for the nerves signal to relax. After the patient gets to a 5, 6, or 7 several pulses will be delivered until the patient starts to feel the dull aching feeling diminishing down to a 1 or 2 and this will happen in “about” 30 to 45 seconds.
