New Technology Ends Neck/Back Pain, Cuts Into Opiod Epidemic

Tuesday Apr 19, 2016

When doctors themselves have serious neck or back pain, where do they turn for help? In many cases, it's renowned spinal expert Dr. Jonathan Donath and non-surgical spinal decompression therapy. This cutting-edge, FDA-cleared treatment is effective for the most severe herniated discs, sciatica, degenerative disc disease and failed back surgery cases.

Conventional medical treatments for back and neck pain often don't work or only temporarily ease the pain. Most of the more severe spinal pain cases can be attributed to bulging, herniated and degenerated discs. Customary medical treatment overlooks the central problem: pressure on the nerves leading out of the spine, or pressure on the spinal cord itself. Non-surgical spinal decompression therapy helps a high percentage of patients who have failed to improve using all other forms of traditional treatment.

"I have treated thousands of patients and enabled them to obtain long term relief from crippling pain in their back, neck, legs, and arms," said Donath. "Before anyone with severe back or neck pain considers surgery, with all its associated risks and problems, they should have an examination with a doctor who specializes in spinal decompression therapy to find out if they are a candidate for this treatment."


Dr. Donath is also certified in other techniques such as Active Release Technique (ART), a hands-on, non-invasive solution for soft-tissue injuries and the Graston Technique, a patented form of instrument-assisted, soft-tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. Some conditions commonly improved by these two treatment techniques include headaches/migraines, back and neck pain, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, TMJ pain, as well as most types of tendonitis.

"Certain alternative treatments have historically been incorporated into the practice of medicine, and they continue to be so, because they work and have been shown to work," said Ira Bedzow, Director, Biomedical Ethics and Humanities, New York Medical College. "Dr. Donath's book explains why spinal decompression therapy successfully stops back and neck pain and gets to the root of the problem, in a way that everyone can understand. His book will help anyone who wants to make an informed decision about choosing the proper treatment for pain."

Dr. Donath is an adjunct assistant professor at the School of Medicine at New York Medical College and is a frequent lecturer at Jacobi Medical Center in New York. Dr. Donath graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic, and was the valedictorian of his class. He also has a Masters degree in Human Nutrition.

Donath published "The Neck And Back Pain Solution: Everything You Need to Know About Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression Therapy" in September 2015.
