Shockwave therapy with PiezoWave², utilizes Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyACT), to find the focus of pain and treat at the source. The term A.C.T refers to piezoelectric pressure pulses that expand as a wave in the body. The pressure pulses break down scar tissue and calcifications, stimulating metabolism, enhancing blood circulation, and enabling damaged tissue to regenerate. Piezowave, also known as Shockwave therapy, is a Myofascial Acoustic Compression technique, invented by Richard Wolf, who developed a special device that uses precisely targeted sound waves to stimulate the musculoskeletal system underneath your skin.
How it helps?
These soundwaves work by specifically targeting injured soft tissue(s), the muscle system underneath your skin. They provide pain relief and improve circulation, by stimulating your body’s natural healing processes. This helps to encourage blood flow to painful areas and brings healing bio-chemicals to promote soft tissue recovery.
To tailor your treatment, the soundwaves are adjusted for depth and intensity. This way, the soundwaves access injured tissues that may be too deep to reach by standard physical treatments for soft tissue injury and have greater healing impact.
Piezowave/Shockwave therapy is used to treat both acute and chronic pain in the muscles and joints. It’s commonly used to relieve painful conditions such as plantar fasciitis with heel spurs, tennis elbow, jumper’s knee, and arthritis.
This therapy uses acoustic waves to compress and manipulate tissue at varying depths, helping:
- Increase circulation
- Focus pain relief
- Improve mobility
- Locate and alleviates musculoskeletal pain
- Break down scar/irregular tissue
- Treat Neuropathy
