Our Doctors

Dr. Jim Handzel, D.C.

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.

Testimonials & Reviews
5 / 5 stars
I was suffering from horrible back and neck pain. I went in frantically seeking relief. Granted I knew it wasn’t going to magically disappear that day, Dr. Tom insured me that with regular weekly visits I would start to feel like my normal self. Its safe to say I wake up feeling so much better! Even after a long day of working, sitting, starring at a computer, I can honestly say the pain is not there. The Joint has helped in so many ways. I highly recommend going if you are in any pain.

Dr. Tom at The Joint has helped maintain my spine health and stay pain free. The ability to visit a chiropractor once a week has been an indulgence. Prior to seeing Dr. Tom, I had visits regularly but no where near once a week for 37 years.

Thank you, Dr. Tom for all you have and continue to offer in a welcoming environment. I would recommend anyone to jump on board the journey toward better health.

After injuring my back in the middle of an exercise. I wasn’t able to bend over and could hardly even sit down. Just my first visit gave me immediate relief and within two day and two visits my pain was 90% improved. After a few more adjustments I was able to exercise fully and i was back to riding my bike. Dr. Stewart and the team have been excellent to work with. Everyone is friendly and getting an adjustment usually takes less than 15 minutes in and out the door, so I can stop on my way to work.

I have been going to a chiropractor for years and the distance and long wait times were often agonizing. When i discovered I could walk in and be seen and show up any day 7 days a week i was too excited. Very convenient, great doctors and office staff! I have new people coming in already and you can’t beat the price!

The Joint is convenient. The doctors are great and of course I refer my friends. I was a referral from my boss & her husband. I think I have referred two people thus far. I have gone to other chiropractors but The Joint is more suitable to my needs, lifestyle and saves me time. Plus, the cost is great!
