Dr. Perretz is a board-certified specialist in Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. He has spent over twenty years building the foundations of his integrative practice in musculoskeletal pain elimination and non-surgical orthopedics. His original training was in acupuncture. The patients he saw were, most often, the challenging cases, who had seen eight or ten doctors before visiting him. His desire to help with these patients led him to study osteopathy at the University of New England, and complete a residency at the University of Chicago. He is one of a small handful of doctors in the country to have integrated these philosophies and skills in his approach to medicine.
His first exposure to prolotherapy was as a patient, himself. After tearing ligaments while skiing, he could not fully straighten, nor fully bend, his right knee. Only four days after prolotherapy, however, he felt his knee had completely healed! Now, athletes seek him out for prolotherapy to restore their joints to high-level function, while others have sought his care just to help them get back on their feet.
Dr. Perretz has lectured at conferences of integrative healing, and has served as a preceptor for students from the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine, Bastyr University, and the University of Bridgeport College of Naturopathic Medicine.
