Arizona Pain & Posture!
At Arizona Pain & Posture, we successfully treat and prevent severe chronic and complicated pain. The majority of our patients are referred by medical pain management doctors and orthopedic surgeons, as well as other patients that have found amazing success with our unique treatment.
Most of our patients have tried multiple physical therapy, chiropractic or other alternative or medical treatments and for one reason or another, were non-responsive to care or were unable to achieve lasting results. These are the patients we successfully treat on a daily basis.
Sound too good to be true? It’s right in front of you. You just need to take the first step and call us to schedule a free consultation with Anthony Jarero, our patient liaison. We’ll handle the rest. (480) 585-0252more about us
Meet Dr. Bonacci
Dr. Bonacci loves a challenge. He often calls on doctors in the Valley for referrals, and he says the same thing to each one: “Send me your most difficult patient. The one nobody wants to touch. The one nobody can get better. Watch what happens.” He has confidence in his skills because his success rate is so great. He has developed his own techniques that help him determine the root cause of your pain, from severe leg pain to migraine headaches. Usually the problem with treatment stems from an incorrect diagnosis. Pain in a person’s elbow might actually mean there is a problem with the neck, back or shoulder. Many therapists will automatically treat the elbow, rather than digging deeper into the root cause. There are many other pitfalls that Dr. Bonacci has discovered through his own experience working with chronic pain. If he hasn’t seen your situation yet, he will be eager to dive into your case and begin the path to healing and wellness with you.
3-Step Pain Program
Three Steps. We pull patients out of the downward spiral and create positive healing momentum. We chart a unique course for each patient, but they all involve the same three steps.
Our 3-Step Program is designed to be effective in the most extreme and fragile cases involving surgical hardware, arthritis or pinched nerves. The same way we help severe patients is exactly how we treat less severe cases and prevent greater problems from developing.
At Arizona Pain & Posture, I often solve conditions that have troubled the patient for years. My approach and technique have a troubleshooting aspect. I use a sequence of events that combines orthopedic tests and hard science with intuition. The intuitive part is needed to get past failure, false negatives and non-responsive patients — the part I call work.

Global Neural Tension™
Do you have unrelenting, mysterious pain — and no MD, DC or PT has been able to help? Have you endured multiple medical procedures — climbing the ladder with medications — and are still suffering? You may have GNT™.
An estimated 40 percent of Americans suffer from some form of chronic pain or Global Neural Tension™. (Also called Global Neural Strain™ or GNS™)
GNT can send pain anywhere in the body. Common areas include: head, eye, face, jaw, neck, back, under shoulder blades, arm, leg, elbow, wrist, hip, knee, foot, abdomen, groin, rib cage and chest.
Auto and Work Injuries
Dr. Bonacci has spent the last 15 years doing research on how to most efficiently treat injury and pain patients. Many of these cases start with unresolved issues relating to an auto accident.
If you have recently been injured in an auto accident, the Bonacci Method can quickly and effectively realign your damaged muscles, soft tissue, joints and nerves, in order to heal properly during your body’s initial rapid healing phase.
If you were injured in the past in an auto accident and your body never healed properly, resulting in chronic pain, the Bonacci Method can help re-train your body into proper posture and alignment, allowing the correct healing to take place. It’s never too late to get the body back on track and begin the path to a pain-free life.
The Bemer is a body-length, comfortable pad containing copper coils that conduct a specific pulse electromagnetic field (PEMF). Our bodies respond instantly to the frequency, stimulating cells to function properly and blood to flow properly.
The Bemer utilizes advanced technology, and even NASA has an agreement with Bemer to develop a garment to help astronauts endure the stress of outer space despite the lack of gravity.
This technology heightens the function of cells in the body, increasing circulation, which results in a number of benefits, including rapid recovery and elimination of discomfort.
My entire life has been spent as an athlete. I was a highly regarded amateur baseball player. I was selected as a pitcher for Team USA three times from 2006 through 2009. In my amateur career, I attended Horizon High School where we won two 5A state championships. I attended Oregon State on a full scholarship to play baseball. After my junior year I was drafted by the Chicago Cubs and played in the minor league from 2010 to 2013. I suffered a labrum tear in my throwing shoulder which made playing a very painful experience. This injury ending up cutting my career short. After my baseball injury I turned my passion to golf and turned professional in 2014. I earned my Asian tour card in 2015 playing courses all around the world. Recently I made the decision to make a comeback to baseball and am currently building my arm strength back up and will hopefully sign a professional contract in Japan. NPB is similar to MLB. During this process I have been training with Driveline Baseball to build velocity. This high-impact training, although very beneficial, made my shoulder pain creep back. After receiving several different treatments from different physical and massage therapists throughout the valley, including a highly regarded performance training facility, and not having much success, I called Dr. Bonacci at Arizona Pain & Posture. Four years ago I had seen Dr. Bonacci for pain in my wrist that would not get better; after two visits it was gone and I was able to return to golf without pain. In all honesty it had been a total game changer then, so I returned to have him work on my shoulder. After one session using the Bonacci Method to unlock my neck joints and muscles in my shoulder, I was able to pitch pain-free. I would recommend this treatment to any athlete who has been dealing with chronic pain or overuse injury before trying surgery. It has allowed me to reach my peak performance with zero pain for the first time in ten years. Thanks a lot, Dr. Bonacci!

Came here after an accident in which my car was totalled and lower back messed up. I was expecting adjustment after adjustment...but Dr. Bonacci's method was completely different and worked very well for me. 2 weeks into a 4 week program and already feeling much better.
Dr. Bonacci has a profound knowledge of anatomy, physiology, nutrition and biomechanics along with a dynamic combination of empathy and motivation. As a pain medicine physician I greatly appreciate his innovative techniques and insightful approach to patient care. Simply put - he’s outstanding!
