Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy – What it is and how it works

Treating musculoskeletal pain by traditional medicines and therapy does not work well in providing long-term relief. As a result, people look for alternative and safe therapies to relieve acute conditions of pain affecting the musculoskeletal system. Non-invasive procedures for pain relief are available in plenty. The latest therapy known as Piezo2MyAct Therapy is highly effective in addressing various conditions, including calcification, scar tissue, bursitis, tendinopathy, capsulations, and many other conditions.

Known as Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy, it is an FDA-approved technology that uses sound waves to treat chronic and acute pain in the musculoskeletal system. Chiropractors use the therapy that cures pain and improves the quality of life of the patients.

How MyAct therapy works

 The machine named Piezo2 uses mechanical energy to produce sound waves that interact with the body’s tissues. The sound waves act upon the targeted tissues, and by manipulating and compressing, it creates a massaging effect in a controlled and precise manner. The mechanical stimulus delivered by the machine results in many benefits like a reversal of chronic inflammation, increased range of motion and blood circulation, dissolution of calcium build-up, and stimulation of collagen. Stimulation of the biological elements creates an optimal healing environment. Gradually, the muscles and tissues in the affected area regain normalcy and restore the functionality of those parts, thus ensuring that patients can lead a pain-free life.

Fast healing

Healing at the speed of sound is the concept behind Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy.  Myofascial has a Latin origin because Latin, ‘myo’ means muscles, and ‘fascia’ means band. Tissues that bind the muscles, ligaments, tendons, body organs, and bones are the bands of fascia. In a healthy body, the tissue system is well-organized in a wavy pattern that runs parallel to the direction of pull. Inflammation or scarring occurs when the body experiences any physical trauma that restricts the elasticity of the tissues resulting in tension or pain in the rest of the body. 

How the technology works

The MyAct technology uses focused and linear pressure waves created by the sound waves generated by the Piezo wave machine and directed at the specific points of the affected tissues. To vary the penetration depth, chiropractors use gel pads of thicknesses between 1mm-30mm depending on the amount of pressure applied at any point.

The focused acoustic compression of the tissues results in pin-pointed massaging of the tissues in the affected area. The impulses created by the sound waves break down the calcific fibroblasts and scar tissues to trigger metabolic activity and develop an anti-inflammatory response to promote and speed up healing.

Myofascial Compression Therapy effectively treats all kinds of musculoskeletal pain even if the cause of the pain remains unknown as it can happen in many cases. The purpose of the technology is to invoke the body’s self-healing powers to cure pain, which is also the philosophy of chiropractic treatment.
