Like conventional medicine, chiropractic is based upon scientific principles of diagnosis through testing and empirical observations. Treatment is based upon the practitioner's rigorous training and clinical experience. Unlike conventional medicine, which focuses on attempting to treat disease once it occurs, chiropractic attempts to improve the health of the individual in an effort to avoid illness in the first place. Most people would rather be healthy and avoid illness, if they could. This is one of the main reasons for the big upsurge in the popularity of chiropractic. People are recognizing the benefit of seeking an alternative to traditional medicine; one that will help them achieve and maintain optimal health.

What truly differentiates doctors of chiropractic from any other healthcare professionals is the fact that chiropractors are the only professionals who are trained to diagnose and treat what are called spinal subluxations. The word 'subluxation' comes from the Latin words meaning 'to dislocate' (luxare) and 'somewhat or slightly' (sub). So the term 'vertebral subluxation' literally means a slight dislocation (misalignment) of the bones in the spine. Although this term was adequate in the 1800s when much was still misunderstood about the human body, today the word 'subluxation' has changed in meaning to capture the complex of neurological, structural, and functional changes that occur when a bone is 'out of place.' For this reason chiropractors usually refer to subluxations of the spine as the "Vertebral Subluxation Complex", or "VSC" for short.

The chiropractic approach to healthcare is holistic, meaning that it addresses your overall health. It recognizes that many lifestyle factors such as exercise, diet, rest, and environment impact your health. For this reason, chiropractors recommend changes in lifestyle' eating, exercise, and sleeping habits in addition to chiropractic care.

Chiropractic is so much more than simply a means of relieving pain. Ultimately, the goal of the chiropractic treatment is to restore the body to its natural state of optimal health. Since the body has a remarkable ability to heal itself and to maintain its own health, the primary focus is simply to remove those things which interfere with the body's normal healing ability.

Reviews From our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Potts is amazing! He is patient and kind. He fixed my upper back pain in one session! He is one of the best!"
    Cindy D.
  • "Dr. Potts works his magic to save me from my back pain. I would recommend him to anyone needing pain relief."
    Todd S.
  • "Dr. Potts is great, he took my husband in on a new patient unscheduled Saturday afternoon visit. As fast as I could make the call Dr Potts answered the call and was just about to leave for the day, Dr Potts dropped everything to see that my husband received the care he needed. My husband has been in pain for months and now with the care from Dr Potts he is on his way to feeling better and truly understanding what is causing his pain. Thank you again Dr Potts."
    Jeri F.
  • "What a patient and kind man. I went in as a walk-in after attempting to do a summersault and really hurting my neck. He got me in quickly and was very nice and helpful. He works very quickly and I was shocked by how many people he could get through in the matter of a couple minutes while still giving everyone a personalized experience and answering everyone's questions with a caring and very professional demeanor. He is very respectful of other chiropractors you have gone too and very welcoming of a team approach to healing. He is very well educated...He fixed an injury I have suffered with for four years in seconds because of some post doctoral training he had taken that all the other chiropractors and doctors I had been to for it had no knowledge of. He is also very gentle and explains everything he is going to do before he does it. If you want a personalized experience from a very knowledgeable doctor with an impeccable bed side manner, this is the place for you!"

  • "Dr Potts is truly amazing! I was scared because I have never been to a chiropractor. My upper back was in intense pain I couldn't sleep. I made my appointment Sunday and came in on Monday. It is now Wednesday and I feel almost no pain! He was very kind and took care of my upper back. I am now going to be a loyal patient from now on! Thank you so much Dr. Potts!"
    Cindy L.
  • "Dr. Potts is a great guy. I was totally comfortable with him and the way he treated me from the first time I visited him. Amazing how much better I feel after an occasional visit with him.

    He's not the first chiropractor that I've been to in Reno, but I do get the sense from him that he wouldn't 'over treat' you as some chiropractors try to do. So, I go back to him as needed."
    JR F.
  • "Went in for serious pain and extreme difficulty breathing he immediately could tell I had a rib that had popped out, he popped it right back in with no pain and I could finally breath again. His prices are affordable and he is very descriptive with what he is doing to fix the issue which I completely appreciate, I believe it I have walked out of plenty of doctors offices not realizing what they did to fix the problem. Thank you!"
    Michelle C.
  • "I had one of those irritating, painful pinched nerves that just wasn't going away. Decided to go to a chiro for help. Got referred to Dr Potts by a friend and frankly, liked the 'deal' he offered for first time customers. Happy in my selection! Not only did he take care of making me feel better quickly...he was professional, highly courteous and no bs (you know..how some chiro's tell you you need to come back 4 times a wk for months to fix your 'serious' problem? (My past experience anyway!) I did go back a couple of times to get back to 'normal' mobility...and will go back again next time I need a good back crack! Felt 100% comfortable w/Dr Potts skills and expertise!"

  • "Went in for an on the job injury to my shoulder. He's extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with. My shoulder is already better and he showed me the right way to sleep etc. so it can heal correctly."
