Chiropractors understand that one of the main causes of pain and disease is the misalignment and abnormal motion of the vertebrae in the spinal column called a subluxation. Chiropractic works by removing these subluxations in the spine, thereby relieving pressure and irritation on the nerves, restoring joint mobility, and returning the body back to a state of normal function.

Numerous studies have demonstrated that chiropractic care is one of the most effective treatments for back pain, neck pain, headaches, whiplash, sports injuries and many other types of musculoskeletal problems. It has even been shown to be effective in reducing high blood pressure, decreasing the frequency of childhood ear infections, and improving the symptoms of asthma. More and more scientific research is demonstrating the tremendous detrimental impact that subluxation have on the tissue of the body. In order to be truly healthy, it is vital that your nervous system be functioning free of interference from subluxations. Chiropractors are the only health professionals trained in the detection, location, and correction of the vertebral subluxation complex through chiropractic care.

The chiropractic adjustment is a quick thrust applied to a vertebra for the purpose of correcting its position, movement or both. Adjustments are often accompanied by an audible release of gas that sounds like a 'crack.' The sound sometimes shocks people a little bit the first couple times they get adjusted, but the sensation is usually relieving. Occasionally, minor discomfort is experienced, especially if the surrounding muscles are in spasm or the patient tenses up during the chiropractic procedure. There are times when the audible 'cracking' does not occur. This is often due to either significant muscle tightness or that the patient may be having a hard time relaxing during their adjustments.

In this section, you will find articles on chiropractic's history, how wellness and medical care differ, and what exactly is an "adjustment" is and how it's used in an chiropractor's office.

  • Wellness vs. Medical Care

    What's the main difference between wellness care and standard medical care? Wellness care seeks to turn on the natural healing ability, not by adding something to the system, but by removing anything that might interfere with normal function, trusting that the body would know what to do if nothing were

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!"
    Mandee G.
  • "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."
