Chronic Pain: Non-surgical Treatments

If you have pain lasting more than three months, the most important thing you can do is get the correct diagnosis. With a correct diagnosis, it is often possible to treat the cause of the pain, rather than just the symptoms.

At Key Largo Regenerative Medicine, Dr. Peterson focuses on diagnosing the underlying causes of chronic pain. After making an accurate orthopedic medical diagnosis, he will recommend a personalized treatment plan. In most cases, his prescribed treatments can help you avoid the cost and stress of surgery.

Our treatment plans include an eclectic blend of traditional medicine and osteopathic medicine. Osteopathic medical treatments are far less invasive than surgical treatment and cause fewer traumas to your body.

We have learned that the body’s response to injury offers clues to enhancing your body’s potential to heal naturally. By understanding what your body is telling us about your injury, we create a treatment plan to help your body heal naturally.

Your personalized treatment plan may include:

Osteopathic Manual Therapy
Medical Acupuncture
Neural Prolotherapy
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy

After following their personalized treatment plan, most patients enjoy restored functioning and enhanced quality of life.


In order to obtain the most accurate diagnosis, Dr. Peterson may refer you for additional procedures, such as an MRI. In addition, as part of your treatment plan, Dr. Peterson may refer you to chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, or other physicians if necessary.
