Dr. Nicolas Riley, DC
While earning his Bachelor’s Degree in Human Biology at Brigham Young University, Dr. Riley found his passion in Human Anatomy. After learning more about the human spine and how it works, he was motivated to extend his education to include chiropractic. Graduating as valedictorian of his class at Western States Chiropractic College, Dr. Riley began to focus on delivering chiropractic care to address the issues of the extremities.
Understanding that hips, shoulders and knees were problematic for a large portion of the population, Dr. Riley prefers to help his patients with comprehensive chiropractic care while teaching them ways to help themselves heal more quickly through stretches, postures and pain-relieving exercises. He is supported by the belief that conservative, natural restorative methods help patients avoid harmful drugs and unnecessary surgical procedures. Dr. Riley is also certified in Dry Needling, which is a proven treatment technique to improve muscle, tendon, and connective tissue pain.
Serving the local community for more than eight years, Dr. Riley is fluent in both English and Spanish and is a great addition to our chiropractic team. Married with four children, he enjoys the sunshine and outdoor recreation that Northern Nevada has to offer.

Then I get to say, ‘OK, just go ahead and stand up now, just take a deep breath in, and roll those shoulders back. How does that feel?’ I’ve had people cry, people give me big hugs, and just say, ‘Thank you so much for fixing that! I thought I was going to have to live with that forever’…”
