At Arizona Medical & Sports Rehab, we recognize that a large portion of people’s pain comes from structural issues. Our Chiropractic team combines a wide variety of advanced stretches, adjustment techniques and decompression to relieve achy joints and fix structural issues so you can get the most out of Physical Therapy. Our award winning Chiropractors work closely with our physicians to maximize treatment outcomes and effectiveness.


Growing up, I always saw my father in pain. I always wished there was something I could do to help. He herniated 2 discs in his low back when he was a football player in his early 20’s. When he went to our family doctor he was given pain pills and muscle relaxers and told to rest. Over the next 20 years every time he went back to the doctor he was given another pill for something new.

By the time I was born, he was on 17 different medications, weighed over 400 pounds and the discs in his low back had worn down to bone on bone. When we went to see the spine surgeon he told us that my father was too large, on too many medications and too much of a liability to operate on. I’ve never seen someone so sad, thinking that he was going to have to live the rest of his life in this kind of pain.

We had heard about gastric bypass surgery and considered it. If he could lose the weight, maybe reduce the medications, in turn he could get the surgery. After the surgery, my father’s gallbladder got infected and he ended passing away from a staph infection. He died December 17th 2007 at the age of 58.

I made a promise to myself and to my late father that I would do everything in my power to make sure that no one has to go down the same path as he did. We created Arizona Medical and Sports Rehab to give the valley a look at what medicine can be. Where patients don’t fall through the cracks or get tugged in a million different directions. I wanted to create a place where doctors work together for the good of the patient. I wanted a practice where doctors from different fields unite forces to fix the root of health issues and educate patients on true preventative healthcare. I’m lucky to have an amazing team that shares this vision and we’re excited to be a part of the Tempe community!

Healthcare is a team effort! Our team is ready, are you?
