Do you have tight muscles? Are you in constant pain? You don’t have to be.
Dr. Maryann Sheps is thrilled to announce that she’s now treating her patients using the latest non-invasive treatment for muscle tightness spasms and trigger points. Introducing enPuls.
enPuls is a medical device brought to you by Zimmer, a company that delivers the best medical device and technology in the world. Using radial shockway therapy (RSWT) patients receive high-energy acoustic pulses into their affected tissue. This action increases the metabolic activity around area that is in pain. In turn this triggers the reabsorption of calcium deposits, stimulating the body’s natural healing process and reducing pain.
Instructed by the President of Zimmer on its uses and application, Dr. Sheps is now the only member on staff trained to use enPuls.

Information from Zimmer
The causes of the observed medical effects are still largely hypothetical or not fully evaluated. Current scientific investigations are in progress to try and develop a better understanding of the causes and effects of the radial shockwave.
There are two probable primary effects:
Direct reaction to the mechanical stimulation
Indirect stimulation triggering cellular and biochemical processes based on triggering a reactive system.
Direct effects may include the following:
-Normalization of the muscle tone through stimulation of the muscle spindle and the Golgi apparatus of the muscle tendon
- Pain overlay based on the gate-control principle (Melzack and Wall) with parallel endorphin release by the stimulation of the skin’s pressure and touch receptors
Pending FDA approval
