PiezoWave2 / Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyACT™)
MyACT®TM (Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy), also known as PiezoWave, is an FDA registered non-invasive pain relief technology which utilizes focused sound waves for the treatment of acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain.
MyACT™ is widely used in the treatment of acute and chronic pain in muscles, tendons and joints. MyACT™ uses acoustic waves to compress and manipulate targeted tissue, producing a precise, focused deep tissue massage. The results of the mechanical stimulus delivered by MyACT™ can lead to increased circulation and range of motion, as well as pain relief, all key components of the healing process.
Extracorporeal Pulse Activation Technology (EPAT)
EPAT is a non-surgical technique that delivers acoustic pressure waves through a special applicator applied to the site of pain or previous injury.
These pressure waves provide pain relief, break down scar tissue and fibroblasts, enhance blood circulation, and increase cell metabolism in the targeted area. Most importantly, this treatment stimulates an inflammatory response that stimulate and accelerates the natural healing process.
EPAT is a highly advanced and effective technology that can be used to treat a variety of painful conditions. It is a non-invasive treatment that treats and heals internal maladies with minimal discomfort and virtually no downtime following treatments. The treatment has been cleared by the FDA and has not been found to have side effects beyond the potential for minor short-term discomfort. EPAT is excellent for injuries that are slow to heal, or not healing at all.
Over the past several years numerous articles and abstracts have been published regarding the effectiveness of RSWT. Radial Shockwave Therapy is clinically proven to have success rates of 91 percent for calcific tendonitis, 90 percent for plantar fasciitis, and 77 percent for tennis elbow.

Frequently asked questions
Will shockwave therapy help me?
Most patients with chronic pain problems have been through various unsuccessful types of treatments. Up to 80% of the same patients worldwide report that Shockwave therapy has helped them eliminate their problem.
Does treatment hurt?
There may be a slight feeling of discomfort during the treatment, depending on the level of pain the patient is already experiencing in the area. However, since the treatment lasts only about five minutes, most patients are able to tolerate this discomfort. Additionally, the intensity of the treatment can be adjusted throughout the session.
How many treatments do I need?
The number of treatments varies depending on the indication and tissue response. The effect of the treatment is cumulative, so you will typically need more than one (3–5) treatment. Very often though, you will experience relief right after the first treatment.
How often will I need treatment?
Most indications require 3–5 treatments which are done 3–10 days apart, depending on the patient’s tolerance and their tissue response.
Willl I feel any pain after treatment?
Most patients will experience an immediate pain relief following the treatment. However, within 2–4 hours after the treatment, they may experience some soreness in the treated area. This soreness has been reported as tolerable and not limiting.
