When you start to feel the strain — literally — there's no better port in a storm than Richmond. Located just east of Willow Lawn, reigning champ Back in Action Health Resource Center offers a full range of options. There's chiropractic care, with treatment options for neck and back pain, sciatica, arthritis, headaches, strains and sprains. And there's acupuncture and massage therapy, including Swedish, hot stone, sports, prenatal and deep tissue. Consultations are complimentary. The business was founded in 1998 by David A. Berv, who serves as the director and a primary chiropractic sports physician. Back in Action accepts most insurance plans, although it advises customers to call ahead to be sure their plan covers their services. The center is open Monday through Saturday, and conducts services by appointment. The Acupuncture Center of Richmond, with locations in Midlothian and Mechanicsville, offers facial rejuvenation acupuncture, weight loss acupuncture, Eastern nutritional therapy and cupping services, among others. And the Advanced Wellness Centre on Grove Avenue offers chiropractic services and massages at its 10,000-square-foot facility, as well as physical therapy, acupuncture and hypnotherapy.
