The PiezoWave is a shockwave system that is used for trigger point shockwave therapy and extracorporeal shockwave therapy. These are highly effective, non-invasive treatments for acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain. Specifically, the PiezoWave is sound technology called Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyACT). This is a widely used treatment option for acute and chronic pain in muscles, tendons, and joints.
How does PiezoWave Therapy work?
Cellular functions of our tissue such as growth, cell differentiation, cell migration, protein synthesis, physiological aptosis, and tissue necrosis – are all affected by mechanical stimuli. This is why the PiezoWave works. The acoustic waves that the PiezoWave generates penetrate deep into the soft tissue, producing intense, quick bursts of compression. This focused compression created by acoustics is the equivalent of an extremely accurate and intense deep tissue massage.
With this precise targeting of the tissue, we are able to improve circulation to the area and provide pain relief.
When is the PiezoWave used?
The PiezoWave MyACT treatment can be used in many applications. Some use cases include:
- Tendonitis of the Shoulder
- Tennis Elbow
- Heel Spurs
- Achilles Tendon Pain
- Chronic Inflammation
- Patellar Tendinitis
- And more!
