He was inspired to pursue the profession of chiropractic after experiencing relief from multiple sports injuries and went on to graduate with honors from Life University in Marietta, GA with his Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
After graduation Dr. Shakarian opened private practices in his hometown of Livonia, MI and then Beverly Hills, CA where he was also an on-call doctor for TV and movie productions. When his first daughter was born, Dr. Shakarian decided to sell his Beverly Hills practice and relocate to family-friendly Chandler, AZ. His first year in AZ was spent working for The Joint Chiropractic’s corporate office and he believed in the brand so much that he purchased multiple franchises in the greater PHX market!
Over the years of Dr. Shakarian’s vast experience he has perfected multiple techniques to relieve those suffering with upper and lower back pain, neck pain, sciatica, severe migraines, vertigo, arthritis, sports injuries and several other ailments. He frequently treats patients of all ages who range from infants to senior citizens.
When Dr. Shakarian isn’t educating the community on the benefits of chiropractic care, he’s busy working out at the gym, golfing, and enjoying every sunny AZ day with his wife, Stacie and their two young daughters.
Dr. Nick Poff, D.C. is a third-generation doctor and so following in his family’s footsteps was a natural fit. Dr. Nick attended Logan Chiropractic College in St. Louis, MO and has been practicing in the Phoenix area for the past 8 years. He joined The Joint Chiropractic in 2015, becoming Tempe’s local chiropractor who prides himself on improving the quality of a patient’s life through a well-adjusted spine and building strong relationships within the community.
Over the years of practicing, he has learned to treat patients of all ages by utilizing multiple techniques.

Dr. Nick grew up in Michigan and is a big Wolverine fan! If he is not adjusting spines, he can be found spending time with his two beautiful little girls or on the golf course.

Dr Samuel Rodriguez was born and raised in Mesa, Arizona. When he was younger witnessed firsthand his mom going thru numerous surgeries to correct her back pain. It was then he decided to pursue a career in Healthcare. He went on to doing his undergraduate in the Exercise and Wellness program at Arizona State University with Magna Cum Laude Honors and graduated in 2007. He did his internship at a Physical Therapy Clinic in Banner Desert Medical as a Physical Therapy technician. During this time his mom decided to try alternative healthcare in Chiropractic and had great results with the adjustment being the focal point of treatment.
Once he saw the power of the adjustment, he immediately enrolled in Palmer West Chiropractic College in 2011. During his education he worked in the Cadaver lab as a dissector and tutor while participating in numerous school clubs including Sports Council, Neurology, and Motion palpation. Dr Rodriguez graduated from Palmer Chiropractic College in September of 2014.
Coolest thing he ever did was after graduation lived in Peru for a year. He got to live and explore all over the country from its desert coasts, mountains of the Andes and Jungles of the Amazon. While living in different regions he tried to surf the longest left-hand wave in the world (Chicama), eat at world class restaurants and experience several ancient cultures.
After moving back to the United States, Dr Rodriguez wanted to further his education and decided to get certified as a Chiropractic Sports Physician which is an additional 100 hours of online education, 4 weekend classes and one final test.
