Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy for Plantar Fascia Pain
Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyACT) is used in the treatment of acute and chronic pain in myofascial tissue. MyACT uses acoustic waves to compress and manipulate targeted soft tissues resulting in pain reduction, increased circulation, and potential tissue remodeling. It is effective in the treatment of plantar fasciitis.
Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the fascia, a band of fibrous connective tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot. The fascia supports the arch of the foot and absorbs shock when walking. Incorrect loading and overuse can lead to severe myofascial restrictions with numerous trigger points.
MyACT uses acoustic waves to localize and precisely treat these tissue changes. It is a highly efficient massage tool that increases blood flow and helps the tissue to reorganize and become more resilient. MyACT is usually able to achieve initial temporary pain relief with one treatment, but it is important not to resume activity too soon after treatment.
