How can we help you?
Guided by a Functional Medicine approach – the core philosophy of healthcare at American Back Center – our chiropractors will often combine their specialized knowledge with that of other healthcare professions (such as osteopathic, medical and physical therapy) to get at the root cause of your problem before recommending a treatment plan. We don’t just treat your symptoms; we treat you as a whole person.
The approach we take with all our patients is comprehensive – including those in need of rehabilitation from injury or medical conditions. Our highly qualified and experienced team of physical therapists will structure a treatment program specific to your needs, to help regain function and truly start feeling better.
American Back Center offers the only FDA approved spinal decompression program in the city! When you have ongoing pain in your back or neck, one of the reasons is that pressure has built up in the discs of your spine. This in turn causes pressure on the surrounding nerves. VAX-D (Vertebral Axial Decompression) is a non-invasive gentle therapy that uses revolutionary technology and techniques to decompress, or take the pressure off, the discs in your neck and lower back.
