What is ACT?
Acoustic Compression Therapy (ACT) is used to treat painful conditions of the musculoskeletal system. The science behind it is the same as lithotripsy, a technology that makes use of acoustic waves to break up kidney stones without surgery. Acoustic Compression therapy has been used successfully in the treatment of chronic pain since the early ’90s in Europe, but is new to the United States. The acoustic waves can be used to break up scar tissue, adhesions and muscle spasms, and increase circulation and healing to muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints.What is ACT?

Acoustic Compression therapy has been used successfully in the treatment of chronic pain since the early 90’s in Europe, but is new to the United States. The acoustic waves can be used to break up scar tissue, adhesions, muscle spasms, and increase circulation. This promotes healing to muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints all with no side effects.

THIS IS NOT: Ultra Sound, Shock Wave, or Laser. The treatment takes less than ten minutes, and patients usually see measurable results in one treatment. The average patient reaches their goal in about 5-7 treatments.

Acoustic compression therapy (ACT) is a gentle form of treatment for musculoskeletal pain that will not irritate the skin or bruise tissues. There are no significant side effects to treatment, and it is safe for most individuals (though it is not appropriate for people with bleeding disorders and pregnant women).

This FDA cleared device uses focused sound waves to treat both acute and chronic pain in the muscles, tendons and ligaments. A strong wave of short duration that travels faster than the speed of sound is generated by a specialized machine and penetrates deep into the body’s tissues to stimulate cellular healing processes. It works by first stimulating the nerves around the painful area to the point that their activity begins to diminish, sending fewer pain signals to the brain. Then—over time—it operates as what is referred to as a “gate control mechanism” in which the signals being sent by the machine override the pain signals sent to the brain.

In addition to reducing pain, it can reduce inflammation, a condition which in itself can trigger pain. ACT increases circulation to the area being treated, which helps to bring more oxygen and nutrients to damaged tissues and speeds healing.

Acoustic compression therapy was first discovered in the early 1990s when similar technology was used to dissolve kidney stones. Patients noticed that pain they had in areas unrelated to the kidneys being treated was reduced after treatment, and researchers began to explore other healing benefits of Acoustic Compression Therapy sound waves (ACT).

Acoustic compression therapy is sometimes used as a form of Trigger Point Therapy. This involves directing the sound waves to specific points on the body where tense muscles or muscle groups have caused nerve irritation, which may be triggering pain elsewhere in the body. Your Doctor precisely controls both the intensity and depth of the waves, which is often impossible to do with manual treatment, particularly in sensitive areas that have been injured or which may overreact to manual therapy.
