Shockwave Specialist

Dr. Mark is excited to announce the addition of a highly effective non-surgical treatment for muscle pain and mobility restoration to his practice at the Denver Vitality Center. Shockwave technology also known as EPAT is a multidisciplinary device used in orthopedics, physiotherapy, sports medicine, and urology. Shockwave Therapy is a modern treatment method that uses high-energy sound waves that are introduced into the painful areas of the body. The energy from these sound waves stimulates cell growth, enhances circulation, and promotes the regeneration and reparative processes of the bones, tendons and other soft tissues. It is one of the most advanced non-invasive treatment methods cleared by the FDA.
