Dr. Aaron Shakarian, D.C. began as an All-State Athlete and went on to play college football during his undergraduate program at Grand Valley State University in Michigan, which recently became the winningest program in college football history. 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. Peter Hughes, D.C. was born and raised in Ontario, Canada. Dr. Hughes has an extensive background in athletic therapy, rehabilitation and personal training services. In fact, he is the former Captain of the Canadian National Rugby Team and played in two world tournaments. He also played as a member of the Life University Hockey Team when they won the ACHA Championship for three consecutive years.
From his experiences on and off the field, Dr. Hughes found the best relief for his aches and pains in chiropractic care. Dr. Hughes holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Physical Education along with a Master of Science Degree in Exercise and Sports Science. In 1999 he received his Doctorate of Chiropractic from Life University in Marietta, GA in 1999.

Dr. David Mancuso, D.C. was born and raised in Northern New Jersey. After scoring a high-stakes goal in the New Jersey All-Star Highschool Soccer Game, he was recruited and offered a scholarship to play Division 1 soccer at the University of Virginia. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Sociology and then in 1992 graduated from Life University in Marietta, GA with his Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
Dr. Mancuso was inspired to pursue chiropractic after three medical doctors were unable to relieve his lower back and sciatic pain. He avoided surgery after beginning chiropractic treatment and was finally able to experience relief from the pain he was suffering.
He enjoys connecting with each patient and customizing his care. Dr. Mancuso stated that chiropractic provides him the ability to remove nerve interference that can cause pain and dysfunction and allows the body to heal itself naturally. Over the years of practicing, he has learned to serve a wide range of patients from infants to grandparents with a range of cases, including migraine relief, sciatica pain, neck pain, and lower back pain through the use of manual manipulation.
Dr. Mancuso enjoys spending time with his two children; his son graduated from Arizona State University and his daughter graduated from the University of Arizona. When he’s not spending time with this family, he enjoys snow skiing and watching professional sports.
Dr. Jordan Odle became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2020 when she began serving residents of suburban Phoenix in the Tempe Marketplace and Chandler clinic locations. By doing so, she is able to continue doing the work that she finds so gratifying.
“The best thing about being in the chiropractic field is helping people to feel better when they never thought they would,” she says. “I love feeling a sense of purpose and joy from what I do.”
Dr. Odle grew up in Los Altos, Calif, and worked in the southern California city of Thousand Oaks before moving to Arizona.
She and wife Kenzie have two dogs, a pug named Mango and French bulldog named Kona. The doctor loves the outdoors and doing CrossFit to stay in shape; in her spare time she also enjoys learning more about nutrition and chiropractic care.
She got a bachelor’s degree in biology from Channel Islands (Calif.) State University, and her doctorate of chiropractic from Palmer College West in San Jose. Her areas of emphasis included functional neurology, receptor therapy, cranial therapy, sacro-occipital technique, and nutrition.
“I knew chiropractic was my calling when I was in my undergrad doing pre-med and started working with a chiropractor and realized I could heal without having to be invasive or give people drugs,” Dr. Odle says. “I loved how hands-on it was.”
She is excited to be where she is today, helping people naturally. “I like working at The Joint because it allows me to work on more people than if I was in private practice,” she says. “It’s really gratifying to help people.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Odle says the one thing she always keeps stocked in her refrigerator is heavy cream: “It makes my coffee taste amazing!”
If any four people from history could attend the dinner party of her dreams, Dr. Odle would include Jesus, and baseball players Aaron Judge, Jack Wilson, and Kole Calhoun. “I enjoy baseball and could have a great conversation for hours with them,” she says. No doubt, it would be nice to know the savior’s opinion of the designated hitter.
Dr. Odle could certainly talk about the most interesting few days of her life. “The coolest thing I have ever done is a horse backpacking trip above Yosemite in the back country for five days,” she says. “I got to see so many beautiful lakes and scenery that most people will never get to see.”
