Shockwave Therapy Los Angeles
PiezoWave/ 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.
EPAT can also be used for Radial Shockwave Therapy (RSWT), in which the applicator is used to produce untargeted radial shockwaves, which propagate in an increasingly divergent fashion as the penetration depth increases, much as the ripples in a pool of water increase in size and decrease in magnitude as the spread from their origin point. These shockwaves are characterized by long wavelengths with a penetration depth of approximately 3 to 5 cm, and can be used to treat tendinopathies and superficial/deep trigger points.
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.
