PiezoWave2- Acoustic Compression Therapy (ACT)
A sound approach to treating acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain. Acoustic Compression Therapy is widely used in the treatment of acute and chronic pain in muscles, tendons, and joints. ACT describes the use of acoustic waves to target tissue at varying depths to compress and manipulate tissue resulting in a focused and precise deep tissue massage. The results of the mechanical stimulus delivered by ACT can lead to increased circulation and pain relief-key components in the healing process.
The acoustic waves generated by the WellWave painlessly pass through the body and converge at a point deep within the soft tissue to produce intense, extremely short duration compression event. The focused acoustic compression is translated to tissue to provide a massage with pin-point accuracy to the affected area.
A typical WellWave treatment takes between 10 and 20 minutes. Normally, 1-2 treatments per week are performed with a total of three to five treatments may be necessary before lasting improvement is achieved. With acute pain, a single session is often successful.
Pre-Hab at our Total Joint Center
Pre-Hab is our Free Consult for anyone going to have a knee or hip replacement in the near future. We will educate you on what your expectations should be from surgery through discharge from physical therapy. We will show you exercises to get started with before surgery that will help shorten the recovery phase after the replacement. We will answer any questions and alleviate any fears you might have about the entire process.
