While aches and pains with hard training can be a common experience, we all know the common advice is usually worthless. Rest and avoidance can create a vicious cycle. You feel good when doing nothing, and then the pain comes right back when you start with easy training. Also, dealing with the uncomfortable judgment in the doctor's office when they ask the leading question, "why are you lifting heavy weights?" If this question were rooted in curiosity, it would be a good one, but more often than not, it is a socially acceptable way to signal disapproval. Most doctors don't understand hard training and are fearful of things they don't have experience with, like lifting heavy weights. Risk avoidance is a deeply rooted value in the medical community that sometimes has unintended consequences.
At Nevada Physical Therapy, we value hard training. We have experience competing in powerlifting, weightlifting, and bodybuilding as a group. Therefore, we understand what it means to train hard. Because of this, we know that lifting weights must be part of the rehab process from the beginning when you want to get back to lifting heavy weights. Treatment will involve a combination of programming and technique modifications with a logical plan to guide you back to where you want to be. We teach you how to nudge the pain instead of avoiding it or trying to push through. For more details, please take a look at our free guides below or give us a call and schedule a consult today!
Nick was so attentive to my needs and he structured his schedule to fit mine. My therapy was focused on my strengths and weaknesses; therefore, my recovery time was much shorter than expected. I highly recommend Nevada Physical Therapy for any lingering pain you may be experiencing.Read More Reviews

DAKOTA EZELL is at the top of MY list as a highly skilled, intuitive, present professional who values and treats me as a whole person, not just someone to fill a time slotRead More Reviews
The best Physical Therapy place I have ever visited. Rare to see an emphasis on finding the best method to improve injury instead of giving everyone the same plan. But the best part about this place is it's approach to well being during and after PT.Read More Reviews
I was referred to Brian Fearnley by someone with significant credibility. I consider working with Brian a huge stroke of luck. This specific 'PT' is increasing my recovery potential a hundred fold. Brian knows his stuff. He is well versed in PT. He has athletic history at UNR and is active in our local community. He is clearly in this profession to help people recover and get under their own power.Read More Reviews
