I suffered from migraines all throughout high school and was able to manage them to some degree with medication taken when I had the headaches. This worked relatively well up until the middle of my first year of college, when I had to go to the emergency room one night because the pain was so bad. Soon after that visit, I saw a neurologist who prescribed me a heavy anti-seizure medication, because there is no medication that is made to target just migraine headaches. I was on this preventative medication for about four months with almost no headaches, and then all of a sudden they returned.

My family had been treated by Dr. Donath in the past, with excellent results, and made an appointment for me to see him one day when I couldn’t even go to work because the pain was so bad. After that first treatment, going in with pain, I came out much more relaxed and confident in Dr. Donath’s ability to work with my body to definitely ease, and (I hoped!) eliminate the migraines. A few months later, I have been off of my medication for more than a month, and have been migraine free for the same amount of time! Going from having between three and five migraines a week to none is really amazing. And getting me off of the heavy medication I was taking is great, too! I’m feeling better than I have in a very long time and Dr. Donath helped me get better faster than I ever imagined possible.

Thank you for all your help, Dr. Donath! As a board certified family physician, I am very open to the idea of “complementary” medical therapies which may be beneficial to my patients, as an adjunct or alternative to traditional medicine. The challenge, I find, is developing relationships with providers in the area that I feel comfortable referring patients to when I am confident they might benefit from this care.  Luckily, my own search for chiropractic care led me to Dr. Jonathan Donath. Not only has he been able to help me with a variety of issues, from migraine headaches to pregnancy related back pain to exercise related ailments, but he has proven to be a valuable resource to me as an urgent care physician.

Doctors usually make the worst patients, and I am no exception.  I usually call on Dr. Donath in some moment of desperation, when some ailment or injury is preventing me from keeping up with my busy life. In “short order” (usually one or two visits, because I rarely have more time than that!) he is able to get me some relief and break the cycle of discomfort, as well as provide me with tips or exercises to remedy the root of the problem.  Some of the patients I refer to Dr. Donath are in need of this kind of specific targeted treatment for a painful condition–I know that based on my own experience, Dr. Donath will be able to give them some relief in one or two treatments which might ameliorate their need for other medications, as well as provide them with exercises and modification of activities to prevent the pain in the future.  The other categories of patient he has been able to help are those who have a more chronic condition–those who have “tried everything” that conventional medicine can offer them, and still have pain or disability. I am happy to be able to provide those patients an option that they might not have explored yet. Additionally, it is nice to be able to assure these patients that I have personal experience with Dr. Donath and that he has helped me–he is not just another name on a piece of paper.
