We look forward to providing you with caring and knowledgeable evaluation and treatment. Scott Bainbridge’s practice emphasizes spine and pain medicine. Amy Valenta and Marcia Clarke bring not only their spine therapy expertise but also years of sports physical therapy experience to Denver Back Pain Specialists. Physiatrist, Dr. Eric Shoemaker, adds the dimension of his sports medicine fellowship training and board certification, along with his training in spine medicine.

Denver Back Pain Specialists, LLC, will continue to accept most insurances. We will remain “In-Network” with all insurance providers. Drs. Valenta and Clarke are able to accept direct M.D. or patient referrals. Drs. Bainbridge and Shoemaker will continue to enjoy the same reciprocal relationship with outside physical therapists.  We warmly welcome all of our current and future patients into our practice.

The Mission of Denver Back Pain Specialists is to provide the highest quality spine, sports and pain care with compassion, integrity and excellence.

The services provided by Denver Back Pain Specialists cover the full spectrum of spine and musculoskeletal diagnostic and non-operative treatment options.  These include: spine and sports physical therapy; medical diagnosis and individualized treatment planning; acupuncture; fluoroscopic and ultrasound guided spine and extremity injections (including PRP); the use of electromyography (EMG) and musculoskeletal ultrasound (MSK US) for diagnosis; and education regarding medication, exercise, and lifestyle management of painful conditions.

Denver Back Pain Specialists is able to serve as a musculoskeletal “medical home” for referring physicians, individual patients or Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs); or provide specific diagnostic, consultative, physical therapy or procedural options to assist medical colleagues in the care of their patients.
