Advanced Pain Management In Charlotte, NC
The use of our proven technologies are used by more than 30 professional and NCAA teams to address the true sources of acute and chronic pain, getting players back in action sooner. Treat yourself with what elite athletes use to control pain and restore motion in your muscles,
tendons and joints.
Myofascial Acoustical Compression Therapy (MyACT) is widely used in the treatment of acute and chronic pain is muscles, tendons and joints. MyACT describes the use of acoustic waves to target tissue at varying depths to compress and manipulate the tissue resulting in a focused and precise deep tissue massage - where your hands can’t go.
The results of the mechanical stimulus delivered by MyACT can lead to increased circulation, increased range of motion and pain relief - key components in the healing process. PiezoWave2 is the fastest growing rehab modality in professional sports.
Why is PiezoWave with MyACT unique?
Other compression devices to treat musculoskeletal conditions do not utilize sound waves to create the compression. Instead, they rely on a percussive application to the outer layer of soft tissue with the hope that the resulting pressure will translate through the tissue to the targeted injury. PiezoWave2 sends an array of sound waves effortlessly and without sensation through the soft tissue to the desired, controlled depth and at that point the sound focuses to create the compression. This results in a more controlled and effective delivery of energy along with a greater patient compliance to the therapy.
The two methods of delivery could not be more different and according to clinicians who have used both devices, so are the clinical outcomes.

FOCUSED COMPRESSION THERAPY
Focused Compression Therapy uses low intensity sound waves to modulate inflammation before and after localized injections with Mesenchymal Stem Cells, Exosomes, and Growth Factor Proteins.
Exosomes are extracellular micro-vesicles (30-150 nm) that are involved in direct cell to cell communication. Exosomes are isolated from human bone marrow mesenchymal stem/stromal cells.

Introducing the Piezowave2 and Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyAct)™ with aptitude to pinpoint the pain and treat at the source
Focusing in on pain Mechanical stimuli affects almost all the cellular functions of living tissue such as growth, cell differentiation, cell migration, protein synthesis, physiological apoptosis and tissue necrosis. The acoustic waves generated by the PiezoWave2 converge at a point deep within the soft tissue to produce an intense, extremely short duration compression burst. This focused acoustic compression force is translated to the surrounding tissue like an extremely precise deep tissue massage. The precise targeting of tissue with acoustic compression provides healthcare professionals with a tool to positively influence cellular form and function, which can result in pain relief and improved circulation.1,2,3
Our state of the art focused compression therapies treat:
Shoulder Impingement Syndrome – Peri-articular shoulder calcification
Rotator Cuff Syndrome
Non-unions and Avascular Necrosis
Repetitive stress injuries
Soft Tissue Strains
Bursitis (shoulder, elbow, hip, and knee)
Clinically focused pain relief improves treatment efficacy and reduces treatment time
Patient feedback helps to guide the focused application of MyACT to precisely where it is needed
Pin-pointing the source of pain eliminates treatments to referred pain areas.
Patient participation in therapy guidance improves understanding of treatment and on-going compliance.
MyACT is delivered via the hand-held Therapy Source.
MyACT utilizes an intense, short duration acoustic energy wave.
The array of acoustic energy generated by the MyACT therapy sources passes through soft tissue and becomes concentrated (focused) precisely at the desired tissue depth.
Multiple applicator gel pads can be interchanged to adjust the focal point depth of the acoustic wave to the targeted tissue
Unparalleled control over energy delivery, treatment depth and treatment location
MyACT is focused deep within tissue to deliver the greatest amount of energy exactly at the point of injury
MyACT’s focal point is adjustable to seven different depth levels
Eighteen output intensity settings provide a controlled application of energy
Targeting MyACT at varying depths to compress and manipulate tissue results in a focused and precise deep tissue massage
MyACT flares the patient’s familiar pain confirming the area that requires treatment

Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy™ puts cells into motion
Years of research have shown that mechanical forces, including tension and compression, greatly influence various cellular functions such as gene expression, cell proliferation and differentiation, and secretion of matrix proteins.1,2,3
• Cells also use mechanotransduction mechanisms to convert mechanical signals into a cascade of cellular and molecular events.1,2,3
• Tenocytes in tendons, fibroblasts in ligaments and skin, osteocytes in bone, chondrocytes in articular cartilage, and endothelial cells in blood vessels are mechanosensitive and respond to mechanical forces.1,2,3
• Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy’s influence as a pin-pointed delivery of mechanical stimulus can result biochemical events that lead to increased circulation and pain relief – key components in the healing process.
