Our spines connect everything in our body. It is the root of our overall wellness and almost always to blame for chronic pain in our bodies.
At Desert Sky Spine & Pain, we believe in addressing the core root of pain, not just managing symptoms. This is why, when you come to us, we look at you as a person – your activities and lifestyle – as well as your structure in order to determine a care plan that attacks the pain directly at the source.
We are Physiatrists – aka Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PM&R) physicians. This means we are trained to focus on medical conditions that affect the brain, spinal cord, nerves, bones, joints, ligaments and tendons.
Dr. Coury, our founding doctor, is a Doctor of Osteopathy (DO).
The primary difference between a DO and an MD is that a DO acknowledges the importance of treating the body as a whole. Pain in your neck could be caused by an issue in another part of your body. Another part of the osteopathic philosophy is that one’s body is capable of healing itself and so DOs use therapeutic methods to hasten healing. In other words, we believe you are more than just a series of pain areas and we believe in medication for the purpose of helping the body to heal, as opposed to just symptom management.
Get a referral from your doctor or physical therapist (if needed- some insurances don’t require it)
Most Medicare patients do not need a referral to see us, but other patients do in order for your visit to be covered by insurance.

During your first visit, the doctor will ask you about your story, assess your pain, and ask more questions about your lifestyle and goals. You will receive a treatment plan that may include stretches and exercises to help reactivate, relax and/or condition weak muscles.
Patients who receive treatments will receive either a follow-up call or follow-up visit, depending on the treatment. For patients with severe, chronic pain, part of the treatment plan may include regular visits and/or treatments so the body is able to heal.
