Control Pain and Restore Motion with the PiezoWave2 MyACT
Bronx Chiropractor, Dr. David Kaseman, DC utilizes the PiezoWave2 MyACT at his office. It is the fastest growing rehab modality in professional sports.
MyACT is a sound approach to treating acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain. 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. Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyACT) is widely used in the treatment of acute and chronic pain in muscles, tendons and joints. 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. MyACT is widely used in the musculosceletal system such as myofascial dysfunction and pain associated with trigger points. Detailed information of indications and containdications are shown in the user manual for the devices.
Course of treatment typically takes between 10 and 20 minutes. Normally 1-2 treatments per week are performed. A total of 3-5 treatments may be necessary before lasting improvement is achieved.
