Dr. Nelson has been seeing me for many years and has played a big role in keeping my professional running career running smoothly! I have worked with him since I was in college, and he does excellent and thorough work and really cares about every patient he sees!



We treat these injuries with Therapeutic Massage and Class IV Laser Therapy, along with other unique therapies:

  • Normatec Recovery Boots: Normatec removes waste products that may help reduce injury risk and delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS). Similar to the kneading and stroking done during a massage, each segment of the recovery boot attachments will first compress in a pulsing manner and then release. This will repeat for each segment of the attachment as the compression pattern works its way up your limb.
  • Marc Pro: The Marc Pro is an electrical muscle stimulation device (EMS device) used to improve your performance, speed up muscle recovery, and provide pain relief between workouts. Dr. Michael Nelson and Dr. Kelsey Nelson understand the basis for post-exercise recovery is the normalization of tissue through the movement of nourishment and waste. The tools provided by our Sports Recovery in Greenville, SC, are specifically designed to accelerate this process. 

Our staff will ensure that patients feel safe, secure, and comfortable with their wellness treatment plan and goals. Having a well-balanced body doesn’t require surgery; seeing Dr. Nelson is a smart, non-invasive, risk-free way to gain and maintain a healthy body, mind, and soul.
