Dr. Donath is certified and specializes in the Active Release Technique (ART). ART is one of the most effective treatments available for treating soft-tissue injuries.

Dr. Donath is also experienced and certified in the Graston Technique, a patented form of instrument-assisted, soft-tissue mobilization that enables clinicians to effectively break-down scar tissue and fascial restrictions. This technique utilizes specially designed stainless steel instruments to specifically detect and effectively treat areas exhibiting soft tissue fibrosis and chronic inflammation. Some conditions that commonly improved by the Graston Technique and ART include headaches/migraines, head and neck pain, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, TMJ pain, as well as most types of tendonitis.
Dr. Donath also utilizes Cold Laser therapy, a treatment that employs specific wavelengths of light able to penetrate deep within tissue in order to help accelerate the healing process. Cold Laser Therapy can stimulate all types of cells including muscle, ligament, cartilage and nerves.
Dr. Donath is at the forefront of the Neil-Asher Technique, a revolutionary, safe, drug-free and proven treatment for frozen shoulders.

Conventional approaches to the treatment of Frozen Shoulder often involve painful injections, months of physical therapy and/or surgery.
In addition, Dr. Donath is highly-skilled in the Diversified Technique of manual joint manipulation. This effective and efficient technique is used to restore proper movement to an injured or “stuck” joint. It is a highly useful approach to restore proper joint function.
