Our Mission

Our mission at American Back Center is simple: to help you get healthy and stay healthy. The path to getting you there, however, requires dedication, thoroughness, compassion and the expertise of exceptional healthcare workers.


American Back Center believes it is our responsibility to not only provide high quality care but empower individuals towards self-care. We therefore make it a top priority to educate our patients so they can make the kinds of lifestyle changes essential to avoiding chronic illness and maintaining a state of well being.


Our treatments will definitely help you feel better and relieve your pain. But the care we offer goes far beyond mere symptomatic relief. We don’t just treat the symptoms; we assess the whole person and get at the root cause of pain – a core philosophy of our Functional Medicine approach to healthcare. Then we focus on improving the way your body works overall and the way you function day to day. We give you tools and information to take home so you can continue to enjoy a higher quality of living.   The practitioners at American Back Center are highly skilled, experienced and fully certified; we are a diverse team that includeschiropractorsmassage therapists, nutritional consultantsacupuncturists and physical therapists.


What really sets us apart from other clinics, though, is our comprehensive and holistic approach to wellness. We listen carefully to your story and collaborate to come up with a personalized treatment plan for you. This approach allows each patient to experience the benefits of cross treatment within a multi-disciplinary healthcare setting. From cutting edge nutritional advice to our remarkably successful spinal decompression therapy (Vax-D), we’ve got you covered. We are currently the only care provider of VAX-D Therapy, which is FDA-approved.   Our knowledgeable caring staff is committed to helping our community and patients achieve their goals for improved health and well being. At American Back Center, you can be assured you are in safe hands as we guide you in your journey to better health.

In keeping with the principles of Functional Medicine, our diverse team of practitioners collaborate to uncover the root cause of your symptoms and develop a treatment program tailored to address both the symptoms and their cause. The physicians, physical therapists, nutritional consultants, acupuncturists, and staff at American Back Center are committed to working with you to achieve optimal health.
