Myofascial Acoustic Compression Therapy (MyACT is widely used in the treatment of acute and chronic pain in muscles, tendons and joints. MyACT uses acoustic waves to target tissues at varying depths by compressing and manipulating the tissue, resulting in a focused, precise, deep tissue massage. The results of the mechanical stimuli delivered by MyACT can lead to improved circulation and– key components in erectile function.
Acoustic pressure waves are characterized by a pressure surge with an extremely short rise time, which is then followed by an exponential drop in pressure and a brief phase of negative pressure. The pressure waves used in MyACT applications focus or develop in the target tissue. The primary means by which extracorporeal pressure waves affect living tissue is based on the transformation of mechanical stimuli into biochemical or biomolecular signals, also known as mechanotransduction.

- Patients seemed to enhance erectile function
In principle, MyACT is rarely contraindicated.
- Tumor tissue
- Blood clotting disorders
- Taking blood thinning medication
- Lung tissue in the focal area
Healthy blood vessels matter!
Erection is the result of a complex synergy between blood vessels, the nervous system, hormones and muscles. During an erection there is increased blood flow to the penis, which in turn increases the pressure. Sufficient blood flow to the cavernous bodies plays an important role in erectile function.
My experience with Dr. S was outstanding. His staff was very nice and helpful.
Arterial factors in erectile function!
Reduced arterial inflow reduces venous compression, resulting in an insufficient erection. Arteriosclerosis is one of the most common causes of ED.
Arterial risk factors for ED include chronic nicotine abuse, diabetes mellitus, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol levels and chronic renal disease.
Treatment is on an outpatient basis with no need for anesthesia. It is painless and only takes a few minutes. The therapy head is positioned above the cavernous bodies and moved longitudinally along the penis. Treatment should be administered once or twice a week; a full course of treatment is 4-6 sessions. There are no known side effects.
Mechanism of Action!
The mechanical stimuli can influence many of the cellular functions of living tissue. Extracorporeal shockwaves – an established treatment in modern medicine for more than 30 years – function as mechanical stressors which trigger biochemical changes in living tissue.
- Angiogenesis (vascularization)
- Improved microcirculation
- Relaxation of muscles
