What is MyAct®?
Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyACT®) is a sound approach to treating acute and chronic pain in the muscles, tendons, and joints. MyACT® treatments use acoustic waves to target tissue at varying depths to compress and manipulate tissue. Think of it as a deep, precise deep tissue massage. The results can lead to increased circulation and pain relief.
The Science Behind It
Mechanical stimuli affect almost all cellular functions of living tissue, such as growth, cell differentiation, cell migration, protein synthesis, physiological apoptosis, and tissue necrosis.
The acoustic waves from a MyACT® treatment converge at a point deep within the soft tissue to produce an intense, concise duration compression burst. In other words, it creates a precise deep tissue massage.
Forest Creek Chiropractic uses MyACT® as a tool to positively influence cellular form and function, improve circulation and provide pain relief.
Why Does MyAct® Leverage Mechanical Energy?
- Tendons, ligaments, bones, and blood vessels respond to mechanical energy, not light, electrical, or thermal energy.
- Mechanical energy from MyAct® can target various levels of tissue.
- Mechanical energy results in tissue compression, not tissue vibration, for better results.
