Many types of focused soundwaves have been used in the field of medicine with great success for more than 20 years. Based on a high level of evidence, Richard Wolf GmbH - a manufacturer of lithotripsy (ESWL) and orthopedic (ESWT) devices - has specifically designed piezo therapy sources to generate low-energy/low-pressure applications for the treatment of myofascial and musculoskeletal pain. This is the technology we use in our Staten Island NY clinic.

What is Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy in Staten Island NY?

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 which are key components of the healing process.

Advantages of Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy

  • Locates and alleviates musculoskeletal pain
  • Non-invasive
  • Reduces pain medications
  • Outpatient treatment
  • Short therapy time 7-12 minutes
  • Only 3-5 treatments needed in most cases

The Piezowave2 therapy was developed by Richard Wolf, the leader in Lithotripsy therapy. While standard Lithotripsy is used to shatter large kidney stones into fragments small enough for the patient to pass with minimal discomfort, the Piezowave therapy is used to address many common soft tissue issues.

How Does Piezowave2 Therapy Work?

The Piezowave2 machine delivers thousands of high energy sound wave impulse to the affected tissue. These impulses are thought to cause micro trauma to scar tissue and arthritic areas. As a result, it stimulates the body’s natural metabolic activity, creates a healthy inflammatory response, and stimulates healing.

The Piezowave2 machine assists the doctor to identify very specific areas of injury and then delivers a series of impulses precisely where they are most effective. There is absolutely no pain or discomfort experienced in areas that are not injured.

In many instances there can be an immediate reduction of pain as well as improved mobility and function. Since it is non-invasive, there is no need for anesthesia. The most common minor side effect following treatment is soreness in the treated area that will normally dissipate in a short amount of time.

Frequently Asked Questions:

The mechanical energy that myofascial acoustic compression therapy provides encourages and stimulates fibroblasts and growth factors to promote healing and increase cell metabolism and local blood flow to the affected area. The treatment is painless because these are pressure
sound waves, not electric shocks. The good news is that PiezoWave Pain Treatment deeply penetrates tissue for healing that can’t be achieved through manual adjustments.
