Our Story


We are a multidisciplinary healthcare center offering top-quality chiropractic, acupuncture, McKenzie method, physical therapy and functional / nutritional medicine. Additionally, we offer VAX-D therapy – a patented, FDA-approved spinal decompression therapy that treats spinal disorders causing neck or back pain.
At the American Back Center, we’re a big healthy family – and you’re a part of the family as soon as you walk through our doors! Our mission is to improve your health through conservative, non-invasive and above all, effective methods. With so many disciplines under one roof, we use a team approach towards a patient’s health. Often a combined, multi-perspective method is more effective than a singular therapy. Whatever works for the patient is what we’ll do! And with a focus on efficiency and effective patient education, we aim to limit visits and in turn, cost.

FDA-Approved Alternative to Spine Surgery

Spinal Decompression, also known as VAX-D, is a non-invasive decompression therapy for neck and lower back, disc-related conditions, including herniated, bulging, and ruptured discs, degenerative disc disease, facet syndrome, radiating pain, and failed back or neck surgeries. If you’ve been diagnosed with back or neck pain from one of these conditions, VAX-D goes right to the source of the pain itself – the disc. By gently opening the disc space, we can create a negative pressure within the disc that pulls the disc back inward. It’s a treatment that addresses the problem head-on, and rather than using medications, we’re fixing the actual problem.
