About MyACT (Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy)

PiezoWave2 – MyACT is Acoustic Compression Therapy that uses acoustic mechanical sound waves to remodel tissue at the cellular level by addressing a large variety of conditions including, scar tissue, calcification, tendinopathy, bursitis, capsulations and so much more.

What is the story behind MyACT?

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 orthopaedic (ESWT) devices - has specifically designed piezo therapy sources to generate low energy/low pressure applications for the treatment of myofascial and musculoskeletal pain.

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 4-6 treatments needed in most cases

 

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.

Testimonial for Foot Pain and Hip Pain

“I've been seeing Dr. Kate for chiropractic care for 10+ years. I've been having hip issues off and on for at least 2 or 3 years. I had four treatments of Shockwave therapy and I have not had ANY pain since! She also did one treatment on my plantar fasciitis and after a few weeks I noticed I no longer had any pain in my foot. It's been wonderful to be pain free. ”

Testimonial for Low Back Pain, Wrist Pain, and Arthritic/Gout Affected Fingers

“If I could turn back time… “Shock wave therapy has broken up damaged tissue allowing my body to regenerate healthy, flexible tissue with much less pain. This has literally improved life with the possibilities these treatments have afforded me!"

Testimonial for Tennis Elbow and Chronic Shoulder Pain

"I am very pleased to report that it has been 6 weeks since my last treatment with the shockwave therapy and I am still pain free today. I have full range of motion without pain after 4 sessions. I highly recommend the treatment to people suffering from muscle pain and joint pain. There was some minor discomfort associated with the treatment, however, the long term benefit far outweighs that discomfort. Thank you for the drastic improvement in my quality of life!

Treatment for Trigeminal Neuralgia

For a number of years I have suffered from Trigeminal Neuralgia. I have exhibited all of the grueling symptoms which include jolts of excruciating pain down the left side of my face that can be triggered by acidic foods, brushing my teeth, the wind, and cold temperatures. I have spent thousands of dollars on massage therapy, medications, CBD products, and acupuncture to just get some relief from this pain. The only thing I got was a little relief, but never pain free. When Dr. Kate suggested I try Shockwave Therapy, I was eager to give it a try because what did I have to lose? After one session, I am ABSOLUTELY PAIN FREE. I can’t remember not being in any kind of pain at all and feeling this good! It is almost like the Shockwave therapy has reversed this horrible condition. I would highly recommend Shockwave therapy to anyone who suffers from this painful condition.

Testimonial for SI joints

I have been working with Dr. Kate Eckert to resolve long term chronic pain issues and mobility limitations related to SI joint and lower back concerns. Even with faithful attention to appointments and therapy recommendations, the pain has diminished but has not been resolved. Dr. Kate recommended that I try shock wave therapy for pain management with the goal of increasing circulation to the affected areas and breaking up scar tissue. After one shock wave therapy treatment, I was immediately pain free for three days noting improvement in my general mobility as well. After four shock wave therapy treatments, the severity of pain decreased with each treatment and the duration of pain free life increased between treatments. My participation in normal daily activities, including driving, was less painful and tiring. My ability to fully participate in sports/exercise related activities also improved. I have significantly benefited from shock wave therapy. The treatments were easily accomplished in the office in a short time frame, and I experienced no adverse effects during or after the treatments. I would highly recommend shock wave therapy for anyone who is seeking to accelerate the healing process for a musculoskeletal related issue.

Testimonial for Lower Back Pain

I have experienced lower back pain to the point of not wanting to do daily tasks. I also was experiencing poor sleep quality because I was unable to find a position that allowed me to be comfortable. I had been seeing Dr Kate for weekly appointments, and I was trying to do the exercises she prescribed for me. Despite Dr Kate's and my efforts, the lower back pain persisted. Dr Kate offered to include me in her sound wave therapy trial. I was encouraged that the treatment would have a positive impact on reducing my lower back pain which was caused by arthritis and structural problems. The treatments themselves were quick, and relatively painless. As Dr Kate moved the "wand" over my lower back, there would be a zing of pain which pinpointed the problem area. Though there was some minor pain involved as she treated the affected area, I was excited that this treatment would actually repair some aspects of my sacral joint. The pinpointing of the actual problem area also afforded Dr Kate valuable information for my regular therapy appointments. The results take a while because the soundwaves take time to destroy problem tissue and encourage healthy cell regrowth. I hope I described the process correctly, but this is how I understand the sound wave treatments work. About a month after completing just 5 treatments, I have enjoyed quite a marked relief. I look forward to having monthly soundwave treatments in the future to further the pain relief. I realize that my age (63) and arthritis mean that there is no permanent cure, and that there will be pain regardless of scientific advances and Dr Kate's best efforts, but I feel better and have more energy than I did several months ago. I am excited to continue my therapy with Dr Kate, and I am so grateful that she has purchased this tool to help her patients like me achieve the best result possible.

Testimonial for Raynauds and Shoulder Injury

I thought I would add to the list of compliments of the Piezo Wave 2 treatment. Two years ago I was in a motorcycle accident involving many broken ribs, collar bone, and scapula. It was hard to get back to normal even with my daily exercises and PT treatments. I have experienced terrific progress after the Piezo Wave 2 treatments. A nice added surprise has been gaining the ability to sleep better due to chronic shoulder pain improvement. Another plus is that I always had hands that turned ice cold outdoors in no time. The therapy on my hands has made unbelievable circulation improvement. So far—so good!

Testimonial for Sciatica and Low Back Pain

For the past two years, teleworking and uncomfortable chairs left me with a constant aching, knife- stabbing low back and sciatica pain. I had tried every possible treatment including massage therapy, chiropractic, physical therapy, and an epidural injection with no long-term relief. Since my treatments with the Shockwave therapy, my sciatica pain has almost completely disappeared. The treatment only took about 15 minutes per session and I had four sessions. It was virtually pain-free! I would very highly recommend the Shockwave therapy for anyone with a chronic pain issue!
