The Health Links staff consists of a nutrition coach, a wellness coach, massage therapists, an acupuncturist, and four chiropractors—one of whom was named a Top Doc of 2012 by Richmond Magazine. Together, this team of holistic healers aims to create a friendly atmosphere where clients wait a maximum of 15 minutes to be seen and technicians educate patients on the benefits of treatments ranging from advanced cranial-sacral therapy to natural cures for ADHD.
Guests relax in Health Link’s modern waiting area lined with cushioned chairs and flat-screen TVs before heading back to a chiropractic room outfitted with advanced equipment and plush treatment beds. Health Link also boasts private treatment rooms for massage-therapy sessions as well as a tranquil yoga studio where experienced instructors help students strengthen bodies with one-hour yoga sessions or untie limbs that get tangled after they spin all reds during a game of Twister.
For eight years, Doctor of Chiropractic Michael Mulvaney ignored his chronic back pain and continued to play sports. He recalls a doctor once dismissing his nagging discomfort as “growing pains,” but his suffering persisted through his teenage years. When he reached college and a friend recommended that he visit a chiropractor, he jumped at the chance. Within three visits, he was pain-free.
This experience planted the seed that eventually grew into Dr. Mulvaney’s career as a chiropractor. Today, he helms Spinal Correction Center of Richmond, where he and his staff offer a combination of holistic chiropractic care and massage therapy. Dr. Mulvaney favors the Pettibon system of chiropractic care, which works to restore the spine’s natural curvature and normalize misalignments that may cause pain, stiffness, or unfair limbo advantages.
Named Best Chiropractor by Style Weekly, Advanced Wellness Centre’s spine whisperers coax errant discs and uncooperative vertebrae back into proper alignment, fighting poor posture and pain. The first visit includes a comprehensive chiropractic, orthopedic, and neurologic exam and a set of x-rays, if necessary, to unveil misshapen spines or inter-rib bunny ears, as well as a detailed muscle analysis. Patients then return for a soothing second session that includes a 60-minute chiropractic massage, when a certified therapist will expertly remove knots from muscles like a master sailor with surprisingly kempt hands. Post-pampering, clients meet with a health care provider to discuss the previous visit’s test results and chart a course of frame-correcting care.
Doctor of Chiropractic Milan Lassiter, a certified strength and conditioning specialist and a certified chiropractic sports physician, employs an array of techniques to realign backbones and improve flexibility. He specializes in treating sports injuries, soft-tissue problems, and back and neck conditions such as herniated discs and a lack of a backbone.
Dr. Lassiter soothes squished spines and oppressed pinched nerves with a computerized decompression table, which gives vertebrae some wiggle room and beckons fluids back to where they belong. While treating athletes, dancers, musicians, or anyone with tightness and tension, he uses the active-release technique to mend abnormal tissues and return them to the wild. Similarly, the Graston technique employs six stainless-steel instruments that Dr. Lassiter glides along strained sinews to uncover damaged areas and prevent scar tissue from forming. He also uses elastic cotton strips, known as Kinesio tape, to reduce swelling, stabilize joints, relieve pain, and subdue loose lips.
