What is Shockwave or Pressure Wave therapy and What does it Do?
Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyACT) is now being widely used in the treatment of acute and chronic pain in muscles, tendons, and joints. Non-surgical treatment for carpal tunnel, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, golfer's elbow, Achilles tendonitis, disc herniations/bulges, rotatory cuff injuries, knee sprains/strains, etc...
The MyACT uses acoustic waves to target tissues at varying depths with the same technology that was originally utilized to pulverize kidney stones with lithotripsy. The technology is currently being broadly used to restore blood flow function in Erectile Dysfunction.
The results of the mechanical stimulus delivered by MyACT can lead to increased circulation and pain relief which are key components of the healing process. 400% increase in stem cell production, 250% increase in Growth Hormone Production, 300% increase in neo-angiogenesis (new blood vessel growth), and healing of ligaments, tendons, muscles, cartilage, and bone.
