Our Approach & Our Team
THEC O N V E N I E N C E FACTOR
Axon Health is 100% mobile. We have the ability to conveniently treat you out of the comfort of your home or office - or wherever you're at.
While this idea was born out of necessity with the COVID-19 pandemic, the benefit reaches beyond providing a service for those trying to stay at home. Mobile chiropractic is great for the ultra-busy. It's great for the families where getting everyone out the door feels like an olympic event. It's great for the people who are in so much pain that leaving the house is an added stressor. We come to you, all in attempt to simplify your life.
OUR A P P R O A C H
Health, Movement, Wellbeing
At Axon Health, we believe that every patient is unique, and their treatment should reflect that. Whether your goal is to get out of pain, climb the Manitou Incline, or simply be able to play with your kids, we recognize that each patient has a different goal, a different complaint, a different cause of that complaint, and a different lifestyle. We take all factors into account when it comes to your treatment plan.
Health is not a straight-forward system. It has many factors that influence it. We incorporate adjustments, nutrition recommendations, exercise and rehab, soft tissue treatment, and psychological factors when approaching your health because all of these factors play a role in wellbeing.
Dr. Erica Abraham-Pannella, D.C., BScKin(Hons.)
Dr. Abraham grew up in Burlington, Ontario, Canada. She was a competitive dancer from the young age of 6 years old, which eventually fueled her fire into understanding human movement. While in high school, she sustained an injury to her left sacroiliac joint, which rendered her unable to dance for an entire year. Knowing what she knows now, she realizes that she probably would have recovered faster if she had been seen by a chiropractor.
In 2015, she graduated from Dalhousie University in Halifax, Canada with a degree in Kinesiology and research honors. Following graduation, she worked as a personal trainer, where one of her clients was a chiropractor. After learning more about the profession, she decided to apply to chiropractic school and ended up at Palmer College of Chiropractic in Florida, where she met her husband, Dr. Nick Pannella.
Dr. Abraham's passion is helping people, and she tries to implement innovative treatment approaches. It is her philosophy that every patient is different, and each treatment plan should reflect that.
Dr. Nick Pannella,
Dr. Pannella was born and raised in New Jersey. In 2011 he moved to Florida to complete his personal training certificate at the National Personal training Institute, as well as his Bachelors in Exercise Science from the University of Central Florida. Between the years of 2011 and 2015, he developed a passion for exercise research and helping others, which is how he came across Chiropractic.
Growing up, one of his childhood friend’s father was a prominent chiropractor in New Jersey. Even though he had never been adjusted until college, he saw what chiropractic could do for people in pain. In college, his biomechanics teacher was also a chiropractor. After completing his class and shadowing in his office, he knew chiropractic was for him. It wasn’t long before he was accepted into Palmer College of Chiropractic in Florida to pursue his dreams of helping others, where he also met his wife, Dr. Erica Abraham.
Between the two docs, Dr. Pannella is the one with the big voice and even bigger personality. Fun fact: he used to work on the set of the Jersey Shore.
Maria Bonilla, LMT
Maria grew up in La Puente, CA. When she was a child, she remembers massaging her parents and brothers, but back then she never thought that she would become an LMT. It's funny how things just work out like that. She says she is definitely doing what she was meant to do in life. It's her calling. Maria loves what she does, and she is passionate about helping people on their holistic journey.
Maria graduated from massage therapy school in 2018, and has worked in the spa and medical side of massage therapy since. She feels very fortunate to have found a career that does not feel like a job. Maria loves being a LMT and loves helping people feel better, whether it be with relaxing or corrective massages. Corrective massages are definitely her favorite type of massage. She specializes in deep tissue, trigger point releases, and myofascial work.
Being a LMT is very rewarding and satisfying for her. To know that she helped someone feel and move better, and that she made a positive impact in their day to day life makes it worth it. Massage therapy is changing and growing with different techniques and modalities. Maria wants to grow with it and give her patients the best care possible.

Phil grew up in Jurupa Valley, CA. He spent most of his youth playing sports and running around the neighborhood. Physical activity and playing outside was the norm.
He went to school for design and animation, worked in the tech industry for over 20 years, and then realized what really mattered to him: health and fitness. Once married and becoming a father at 40, he turned his focus on ways to enhance life and increase energy, with his health being top priority for longevity and setting a good example for his daughter.
Phil got certified as a personal trainer and nutrition coach. Realizing that our health and wellness encompasses everything in life. He now thrives on constant expansion of knowledge to help improve and support others in creating a healthier and more active lifestyle for themselves.
