When Dr. David A. Berv founded Back in Action in 1998, his goal wasn't merely to relieve pain. He wanted to help his patients reach their physical peak. The practice near Willow Lawn offers a unique, interdisciplinary approach to chiropractic care which includes acupuncture and therapeutic massage. Athletes love Back in Action because Berv, a longtime sports chiropractor, and his staff are experts in sports injuries. Some clients come in not because they're in pain, Berv says, but because they want to improve their performance. For example, he says, "They're about to run the 10-k, and they've been feeling out of kilter." Second-place winner Advanced Wellness Centre also offers a holistic approach, adding fitness, nutrition, acupuncture, massage and hypnotherapy to chiropractic care. And patients rave about the friendly staff and effective treatments at the Spinal Correction Center.
