Like a Tootsie Pop, the human spine has a hard shell, protects a vulnerable core, and is not meant to support the weight of a refrigerator. Protect your candy column with today's Groupon: for $39, you get the Bodyworks package, which includes a spinal consultation and exam (a $90–$247 value) and a 30-minute doctor-directed table massage (an $80 value) at the Spinal Correction Center of Richmond (up to a $327 total value).
Doctor of Chiropractic Michael C. Mulvaney is dedicated to solving back and extremity pain with nonsurgical solutions based on individual needs. The spinal examination probes bone-coasters for abnormalities over the course of one hour, identifying potential problem areas and notifying the patient's mother, while a consultation presents treatment options should the vertebral victim elect to address any complications. Using the results of the examination, Dr. Mulvaney directs a table massage that kneads away stress over a 30-minute period, leaving a useless mess of relaxed muscles in its wake. First-time visitors equipped with a photo ID upon arriving breeze through the reception process while a waiting room of patients without proper identification looks on in envy.
Spinal Correction Center of Richmond
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.
