YOUR MYACT CONSULTATION
“I started treatments because I had torn ligaments and a torn meniscus in my right knee after a significant slip and fall accident. The process itself was easy, comfortable, and the perfect alternative to surgery. After I had more movement, less pain walking, and I regained complete function of my knee. The effect is nothing short of a total miracle! I can now squat, kneel, walk, jog, and am not hindered by my knee at all! MyACT treatments truly work!” -Julie T.
Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyACT) is a new technology that uses pulses of sound energy called “acoustic waves” to treat painful conditions of the musculoskeletal system. It is considered a form of sound wave therapy. This treatment uses short and strong jolts of sound that travel faster than the speed of sound. Our treatment process will be explained during your consultation in detail. This process allows very specific areas to be reached from outside of the body. The sound waves have been compared to the feeling of a deep tissue massage (link massage page). Specific parts of the body can be improved by acoustic compression therapy including ligaments, tendons, bones, joints, and cartilage.
Acoustic Compression waves have been used successfully in the treatment of chronic pain since the early ’90s. The science behind MyACT is the same as lithotripsy, a technology that makes use of acoustic waves to break up kidney stones without surgery. Patients undergoing lithotripsy procedures noticed that their unrelated aches and pains were reduced, leading scientists to consider acoustic waves effect on other tissue injuries. Specialized machines were developed specifically with the idea of using the acoustic waves in other parts of the body – and MyACT was born.
The fundamental purpose of this treatment is to help people live without pain. Achieving this can help people function in their lives and add ease to normal activities including improving sleep, range of motion, stability, and circulation.
People that have had troublesome injuries or unexplained chronic pain see improvement through this treatment especially when they have tried other treatments and have not reached the desired results. This treatment excels at addressing chronic injuries and chronic ailments in joints by addressing specific pain points. This type of therapy has is also known to show fast results when seeking improvement of injuries.
Other benefits of treatment performed with the MyACT are:
Applications include the treatment of pain associated with plantar fasciitis (a common cause of heel pain), repetitive stress injuries, and trigger points. This is effective in the treatment of myofascial pain syndrome which can be related to acute and chronic sports injuries like a torn ACL, repetitive stress (knee pain) and occupational injuries.
