Meet the Team

Dr. Ian Yamane

Founder & CEO

Dr. Ian Yamane grew up in San Diego County, California. His affinity for chiropractic began when he was 11 years old after being diagnosed with scoliosis.

His parents employed a holistic, non-invasive approach to Dr. Yamane’s treatment and was treated by a chiropractic doctor, rather than utilizing traditional medical approaches of casting, bracing and surgery. Following an intense treatment regimen, his scoliosis was resolved. Because of this personal wellness experience, he was determined to become a chiropractic physician himsel. Dr. Yamane earned his chiropractic doctorate in 1993, graduating with honors from the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. He has practiced in Las Vegas since graduation. 

Governor Kenny Guinn recognized his innovative spirit and integrity, and appointed Dr. Yamane to the Chiropractic Physicians Board of Nevada in 2002. Dr. Yamane served on this regulatory board for 8 years, ending his final term as President of the board. In gratitude, he was awarded the “Pillars of Regulation” by the Federation of Chiropractic Licensing Boards.

Dr. Casey has lived in Las Vegas since the Beatles were a new sensation, has attended an original performance of the Rat Pack, and was there when Evil Kenievel jumped and crashed at the Caesars Palace fountains.

So he went back to school and worked nights until he had his Bachelor’s degree in Human Biology.

Tracey – Office Administrator

I have worked at NRC since 1998.  I started as a back office chiropractic assistant, worked front desk and then moved into management.   I love chiropractic and how it helps people feel better.  A lot of our symptoms come from pain from our spine being out of alignment and with chiropractic adjustments we can feel better without masking the pain with meds.  I also believe in keeping your spine maintained for overall wellness just as you get your teeth cleaned.  The doctors and Team at NRC really are awesome, ethical and truly care about  patients.

When I am not at work, I love to spend time with my husband, kids, mom, friends and dogs.  I have 2 grandchildren that I adore and love to spend time with!  Being a grandma (Nama) is awesome!   I also love to play golf and sew!

Linda – Medical Records

I have worked for Nevada Rehabilitation Centers for over 11 years.  It is wonderful to work with great doctors who have high ethical standards. Chiropractic treatment has helped me over the years in general and with some of my health issues.  I love reading and spending time with my grandchildren.

Michelle – Billing

I have worked in chiropractic’s for 13 years and have been with Nevada Rehabilitation Centers for 10 ½ of those years.  I am very lucky to be with Nevada Rehab Centers because we do have the best doctor’s and are probably one of the very few ethical practices left in Las Vegas by far.

I believe in chiropractic’s and the benefits and healing it promotes.

Terri – Massage Therapist

 

 

Paris – Massage Therapist

I graduated from the European Massage Therapy School in July of 2015. With the excellent guidance of a few of my favorite teachers, I’ve learned the techniques of Swedish, Deep Tissue, Aromatherapy, and Reflexology massage to name a few, and learned about energy and how it affects everything.

I love to help our patients feel better, release their pain and help their bodies relax beneath my fingers. This is what I love to do! Working closer with people was the my ultimate goal when I realized my hands are my greatest machines in helping others achieve wellness.

People don’t often realize how important massage is because it’s usually seen as only a luxury; luckily it’s being more incorporated medically and my joy is witnessing how it’s affects more than the body, but truly the mind and spirit as well!

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with friends, family and pets, writing, music, and Batman. I’m also slowly learning Italian!

Chiropractic has really helped me understand that so much pain can be relieved through adjustments & therapy. So much is connected to the back that other areas get relief as well in the process.

My favorite hobby is arts & crafts. Creating things gives me great happiness. From comic collages to birthday signs to custom letters. I love DIY projects & love to give them as gifts, for me it has more meaning then something store bought.
