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. Lisa Huebner became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2018 when she began serving residents in the 805 area code, where she continues doing the work she finds so rewarding.
“The best thing about being in the chiropractic field is having the ability to help people’s bodies heal from the inside out,” she says. “It’s a natural approach to healthcare. No drugs. No surgeries. No shots. Realigning the spine to help the body restore proper function and heal through our knowledge and hands is extremely gratifying.”
Dr. Lisa, as her patients call her, was born in Santa Barbara and grew up in Thousand Oaks; she has worked previously in Goleta, Montecito, Simi Valley and Ventura.
She is married to an IT professional in a family business in Oxnard and they have a young son and daughter. When they aren’t doting on their French bulldog Ruby or their 18 chickens -- and all of them have names, including Thelma and Louise -- Dr.Lisa enjoys baking, working out, listening to audiobooks, and going to the beach as a family.
Dr. Lisa earned her bachelor’s degree in exercise science and sports medicine, with an emphasis on human performance, from California Lutheran. She then earned her doctorate from the Palmer College of Chiropractic West Campus in San Jose.
“I knew I wanted a career in healthcare when I started college,” Dr. Lisa says. “A man from my church was a chiropractor and my dad suggested shadowing him. When I did, I was amazed with what chiropractic care was and how it helped people, how someone’s hands could help restore health. I shadowed the doctor for months and eventually worked for him my last two years of college before entering chiropractic school.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Lisa says the one thing she always has in her refrigerator is cheese: “It can go on practically anything! It’s good for quesadillas, grilled cheese, burritos, tacos, sandwiches -- you can’t go wrong with cheese.”
Her perfect dinner party with any four people from history would include author J.K. Rowling, first lady Michelle Obama, and television personalities RuPaul and Ellen DeGeneres “because these four are intelligent people with different backgrounds and good senses of humor.”
Dr. Lisa says the coolest thing she has done was a two-week trip to the birthplace of the Renaissance. “I visited my best friend in Florence during winter break and we traveled all around Italy,” she says. “It was great to visit beautiful places such as the Sistine Chapel, fashion capital Milan, and the leaning tower of Pisa -- all the while eating amazing food and touring beautiful sites and museums.”
Dr. Tyler Erickson became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2019 when he began serving residents in the Ventura area, where he continues doing the work he finds so rewarding.
“The best thing about being in this field is having the ability to show, educate, and teach patients about the importance of chiropractic care,” he says.
Dr. Erickson grew up in Camarillo and has worked previously in Portland, Ore., as well as Woodland Hills, Valencia, Moorpark, and Van Nuys.
When he’s not working or doting on cats Gatsby and Jasper, Dr. Erickson enjoys working out, as well as playing tennis and golf at Las Posas Country Club.
Dr. Erickson earned a bachelor’s degree in exercise science from California Lutheran University. After Cal Lutheran, he attended University of Western States in Portland, where he earned his doctorate in chiropractic.
Dr. Erickson’s first-hand experience helped send him down the path of chiropractic. “During my junior year of college running track and field, I experienced a severe disc injury while lifting,” he says. “I sought help from a chiropractor who I had seen before, and he informed me of what happened and got me back on my feet within two weeks. Chiropractic was eye-opening to me in how effective it was and how quickly the nervous system can begin to heal the body more rapidly than other sources of rehab.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Erickson says the one thing he always keeps stocked in his refrigerator is eggs: “Protein gets the day started right.”
If he could bring together any four people from history for the dinner party of his dreams, he would include quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers and Brett Favre, receiver Donald Driver, and offensive tackle David Bakhtiari. “Who doesn’t want to play cornhole and have beers with my favorite football team, the Green Bay Packers,” he says. “Fun fact: I was born in the great state of Wisconsin.”
Likewise, one of his greatest experiences was getting “to walk through the Packers tunnel at Lambeau field and walk on the grass. There’s nothing like it.”
Dr. Erickson says the title of his autobiography would be Lifetime of Happiness, and that if he could give any advice, it would be that people “shouldn’t stop grinding just because someone else says you can’t.” That fits with some of the best advice he was given, which is simple: “Don’t procrastinate.”
Dr. Robert Sanders became part of The Joint Chiropractic’s team of local healthcare providers in 2020 when he began serving residents in the Ventura area, where he continues doing the work he finds so rewarding.
“The thing I like most about being in the chiropractic field is constantly being able to meet new people and enabling their bodies to be at optimal health,” he says.
Dr. Robert, as his patients call him, grew up in Northern Kentucky and worked previously in San Diego and Singapore. He was impacted by growing up in “one of the poorest states, where I saw a lot of reliance on medications that I knew didn’t fix or change anything in the body and often led to addicting issues; it was very sad to see.”
He is married to another chiropractor and they have a maltipoo, a combination Maltese and poodle, named Coco. In his spare time, Dr. Robert enjoys watching the NFL, snowboarding, golfing, and working out.
He majored in kinesiology with a minor in nutrition at University of Miami (Ohio) before getting his doctorate in chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic West Campus in San Jose.
Dr. Robert knew chiropractic was his calling after an experience in college. “I was a pre-med student in undergrad and injured my back while deadlifting,” Dr. Robert says. “I couldn’t walk, I was in excruciating pain. I went to an MD who saw me for five minutes, didn’t touch or look at my back, and gave me a month’s supply of Vicodin. I knew Vicodin wouldn’t actually fix my low back. I saw a chiropractor for the first time and within a week of the first adjustment I was back at the gym.”
One of his most memorable moments in the profession was one of his first patients while working at The Joint. “She was a 50-year-old woman who had severe debilitating pain due to three disc bulges in her low back,” he explains. “She was in tears when she walked in and couldn’t sit down to fill out the paperwork. After the first adjustment, she was smiling and her whole demeanor changed. It was very fulfilling to see such a turnaround.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. Robert says the one thing he always keeps stocked in his refrigerator is turkey bacon and eggs. “It’s my breakfast,” he says.
If he could bring together any four people from history for the dinner of his dreams, Dr. Robert would include boxer Muhammad Ali, George Washington, Hippocrates, and Albert Einstein. “Ali is my favorite athlete of all-time, and also a great activist,” he says. “Washington, obviously, was the father of our country but is actually a distant relative of mine. Hippocrates is the father of medicine and one of the smartest people the world has seen, way ahead of his time. Einstein is a great mind who would make for great conversation.”
Chiropractic was involved in the coolest thing Dr. Robert has ever done. “Once licensed, I traveled to Singapore with my wife Angelica to practice chiropractic,” he says. “I loved the new culture, the ability to easily travel Southeast Asia, and I got to share a new type of ‘medicine’ with Asia. They love alternative medicine. And I was able to travel to nearby countries and visit Vietnam, Thailand, Bali, Indonesia, and Malaysia.” The best advice he ever got was from his dad: “As a kid, I was told that proper preparation prevents poor performance. I didn’t really understand at the time how prevalent the advice is in any situation.”
