Meet The Doctors

Dr. Jim Handzel, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Camelback

I grew up in Arizona with a engineer dad who graced me with my passion and physical mechanical aptitude. My interest in health launched a focused path in life starting in my undergraduate studies where I received a bachelor of science in microbiology and chemistry while working on technology in the field concerning immunoparasitology. Later while working in the biotech industry I set foreword to receive my Doctorate degree in Chiropractic at Palmer College of Chiropractic - West, earning the award of clinical excellence, and attaining the extreme honor of being selected to go to Brazil and represent the school and chiropractic profession during the world-wide expansion of chiropractic.

Returning to the states, I moved to Southern California and took an established practice in Encinitas, California and expanded it to a diversified successful family based wellness practice, for 10 years. In 2006 I moved back to Arizona to be closer to family and began an accomplished nutritional and chiropractic holistic wellness practice. For almost two decades I have pursued extensive postgraduate studies in the acquisition of knowledge and mastering the application of numerous specialized chiropractic techniques including; Palmer diversified, Gonstead, Activator, Thompson drop, Applied Kinesiology, Bio-Physics, Extremity Adjusting, Active Release, Nutrition Response Testing, among numerous other techniques. I have boundless enthusiasm for showing and helping people to achieve healthy enjoyable lives. The protocols I deliver are groundbreaking to patients, and are derived from years of personal experience, painstaking and fervent research, as well as working with thousands of patients. I am hopelessly passionate about showing people how to maximize not only the inner and outer health, but the beauty of feeling healthy no matter what a person’s age.

In 2016, I am excited to join The Joint Camelback Clinic to round out the proactive wellness team to help strive in expanding the mission of improving the quality of life through routine and affordable chiropractic care.

Dr. Tom Armbrust, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Camelback

I was raised in the suburbs of Chicago. My introduction to chiropractic was due to a traumatic injury at the age of 8 that caused me to be in traction for 2 weeks followed a body cast for 10 weeks. After recovering from my injuries my posture was poor and I was limping. No physical therapy or rehabilitation was suggested so my parents took me to the chiropractor. Within a short period of time and many adjustments I was better than new! I was forever sold on chiropractic and I knew at the age of 10 that I wanted to be a Chiropractor.

At the age of 15 we moved from the Chicago area to South Carolina. After graduating high school I attended Clemson University but always working toward the goal of attending a chiropractic school. With my prerequisites complete I enrolled in Life University in Marietta, Georgia. In June of 1997 I graduated with my Doctor of Chiropractic degree.

Shortly after graduation I moved to Arizona to begin my career of helping others like I had been helped all those years ago. I opened my own clinic in March 2001 in North Phoenix and remained in private practice until May 2017 when I joined the team at The Joint-Camelback. I have always given my patients the best I have to offer so I am excited about joining an organization that promotes wellness on such a large scale.

I continue to study and learn about new techniques and research in the chiropractic field. I am also interested in emergency medicine and recently completed my EMT certification. I currently volunteer on the Glendale Fire Department's Crisis Response Team and I am working towards my paramedic license.
