Dr. David Velez

Meet Dr. David Velez

A quick bio about me: my name is David Velez. I am a former collegiate athlete and current “weekend warrior.” I am a very active person and enjoy running, hiking, crossfit, weightlifting, and coaching youth sports. My wife Kelli and I have two young kids that keep us extremely busy; and we wouldn’t have it any other way.

I truly believe we are all athletes. There comes a time for all of us when we have pain or problems and are looking for a way to stay in the game. It could be a crossfitter with shoulder pain, a baseball player with elbow pain, a father with back pain, or a grandmother with knee pain. Whatever the case, the goal is doing what you love at the peak of your ability.

I would say I am a problem solver to the core. It’s not my style to shut you down and rest the problem away because that is often not the right answer. Utilizing a unique neurofunctional approach, I aim to find the root cause of the issue at hand, reduce tissue sensitivity and work hard with rehab exercises. For every patient visit my only concern is to maximize our time together to make steady and sustainable improvements in rehab and performance.

Whether it’s a new injury or something that has been going on for a while, we understand how frustrating it can be to be stuck on the sidelines of life. Whether that means having to scale back your marathon training because you just can’t kick that hip pain, or having to think twice before joining friends on a hike cause your knee might act up, or perhaps all you want to do is have a catch with your grandson but don’t want to suffer the shoulder pain that may follow.

You can expect one SoftWave Therapy session to give you temporary relief, but for full, cellular level, stem cell response and tissue regeneration, following a specific treatment protocol in succession over a six-week period, is when you begin to have long-lasting healing.

Please don’t settle for anything less than your best life. Contrary to popular belief, there is often something that can be done to improve or even eliminate your pain. We can help.

There has never been anyone in my life that has motivated me to push harder or reach farther then Kelli. She inspires me, even when she’s pushing me to do more than I think I can. I am where I am today because Kelli never gave up on me, even when I was ready to give up on myself.

I am very happy with the care that I received at Active Life Project. Dr. Kelli is amazing! She is knowledgeable and caring. She constantly provides a thorough and personalized treatment for my needs.

SoftWave FAQs

  • What results should I expect from SoftWave Therapy?

    If you are a candidate for treatment, SoftWave therapy can provide both immediate and long-lasting results. After one SoftWave session, patients typically experience a 20-50% reduction in pain and improvement in mobility, lasting from a few hours to several days. Some patients require multiple sessions before experiencing improvement.

    To determine if SoftWave is a suitable treatment for you, schedule a $69 New Patient Appointment, where you will receive one SoftWave treatment session, and the provider will assess whether further treatment is appropriate.

    Unlike pain medications and injections, SoftWave treatment seeks to activate the body’s natural healing process at the cellular level to deliver genuine and long-lasting results.

  • What is the SoftWave treatment process like?

    SoftWave is a fast and convenient non-invasive procedure that usually lasts 10-15 minutes, with no downtime required for recovery. First, ultrasound gel is applied, then the SoftWave device is gently placed to deliver shock waves to the injured area. Most patients feel a gentle tapping or pulsing sensation, while some patients may experience mild pain or discomfort. The use of anesthesia or numbing agents is not necessary. Effective communication with the provider during treatment can help identify treatment hotspots and track progress.
