We have added four new myofascial transmitters to our Shockwave therapy treatments. Peri-Actor fascial heads can penetrate deep into tissues not reached by traditional methods.
Fascia can be viewed as a sack throughout the body that encapsulates and compartantisizes tissue such as muscle. Recent theory focuses the important role of mobility, function and pain and consequently imbalances within the myofascial tissues.
What is Fascial tissue? If you look at a piece of meat and see that thin fibrous translucent fibrous surrounding tissue - that's fascia.
Myofascial treatments are often typically done by hand or with instrument assisted hand tools. These methods are known to be beneficial but may not reach the depth or have the effectiveness of mechanical tools such as Shockwave.
Practitioners at Healthview often combine contemporary fascial protocols with Shockwave head combinations. Shockwave treatment is a popular choice as an adjunctive modality with our clinicians.

Combined with EPAT®, fork shaped applicators / transmitters help treat spinal musculature.
These specialized EPAT® transmitters for the radial D-ACTOR handpiece optimally reach the vertebral joints of the entire spinal column in the neck, chest and lumbar areas. The muscles can be worked on paravertebrally. The contact surface of the U shape allows medical professionals to selectively reach myogeloses, tension and trigger points with EPAT®.
