Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy for Non-Invasive Pain Relief
Nothing diminishes the quality of life quite like chronic pain. Whether you are an athlete or just like to stay active, being in your best physical health just makes the day go easier.
Fortunately, for those with chronic pain and physical health issues, there are some innovative technologies making it easier to take back your life. Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy uses gentle, non-invasive sound waves to bring relief for a range of issues, including:
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Elbow pain
- Ankle pain
- Tennis/golfer's elbow
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Muscle spasms
- Plantar fasciitis
- Foot, heel and toe pain
- Hip, knee and other joint pain
- Soft tissue strains and adhesions
- Tendon and muscle pain
This therapy can be administered quickly and conveniently during a short office visit to our Wayne and Brooklyn chiropractors. Best of all, sound therapy can provide deep and immediate relief from chronic pain.
The anatomy of an injury that is causing chronic pain can vary widely. Some chronic pain involves local and chronic inflammation at the injury site. However, pain can also occur in distant but corresponding trigger points within muscles a distance away from the injury.
Relief from Carpal Tunnel, Back Pain, Joint Pain, Elbow Pain, Plantar Fasciitis and More
Trigger points are pain points that have become thickened and sensitive within a nearby muscle such as in carpal tunnel or back pain. Muscles have become tense due to the pain, and a variety of different pain types can become triggered as a result. The patient also becomes more prone to additional injuries such as sprains, strains and tears.
Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy and sound therapy reduces and relieves pain through a process called “hyperstimulation anesthesia.” This means the nerves that are triggering pain signals are gently overstimulated, which causes their activity and effect to diminish. This has the effect of dramatically decreasing or even eliminating pain quickly. The client is able to experience non-invasive pain relief, sometimes for the first time in months.
Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy can also have a longer effect on pain relief through training the "gate-control" mechanism in the nerves to close down the impulses that trigger pain signals in the brain. This can in effect reset and recalibrate the body’s pain response, bringing long-term relief as the injury continues to heal.
Sound Therapy is Customizable by Our Brooklyn and Wayne Chiropractic Clinics
The pulse, frequency, intensity and depth of the treatment can be adjusted on a case by case basis to bring optimal results. For example, TMJ pain in the face and jaw would be treated differently than pain in a larger, thicker area like the back or hip.
If you suffer from carpal tunnel pain, elbow pain, shoulder pain, plantar fasciitis or chronic back pain, Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy might be for you. Sound therapy is non-invasive and available in short, convenient office visits at our Wayne or Brooklyn chiropractic clinics. Those in the New York or New Jersey areas can visit Back to Health Chiropractic, Acupuncture & Wellness Center for fast, effective relief.
