Non-Surgical Neck Pain and Cervical Condition Treatments in Los Angeles and Orange County

What is it?

Discs in the neck and lower back may degenerate, causing chronic back and neck pain. In the United States, 500,000 spinal fusion surgeries and 400,000 lumbar discectomies are performed every year for people who are dealing with chronic back pain due to disc degeneration. 

Regenerative medicine offers an alternative to surgery, and the innovation provided by cell therapies is an exciting new way to help people who are suffering from chronic back and neck pain that are caused by degenerative disc diseases in the neck and back.


Stiff neck

Soreness and difficulty moving the neck, especially when trying to turn the head from side to side.

Sharp pain

This pain may be localized to one spot and might feel like it is stabbing or stinging. This type of pain typically occurs in the lower neck.


This discomfort is typically felt in a broader area or region of the neck. It is described as tender or achy, not sharp.

Radicular pain

This pain can radiate along a nerve from the neck into the shoulder and arm. The intensity can vary and this nerve pain might feel like it is burning or searing.

Cervical Radiculopathy

Neurological deficits—such as problems with reflexes, sensation, or strength—may be experienced in the arm due to nerve root compression. Cervical radiculopathy may also be accompanied by radicular pain.


Sometimes an irritation in the neck can affect muscles and nerves connected to the head.


It is an all too common myth that acute neck pain requires bed rest. In fact, there is research that shows that extended rest beyond a couple days can actually make the situation worse. We often also incorporate hands-on therapy with Osteopathic Manipulation or referral to a trusted DO, Chiropractor or other manual therapist. Another complementary therapy that has supportive research is acupuncture. If needed, we use regenerative injection treatments to treat the whole Functional Spinal Unit.

Since the cells are taken from the bodies of the patients, there is no potential for allergic reactions. People may experience risks that are associated with injections, including bleeding, infections or damage to the nerves.

Cell therapy may be a great alternative to spinal surgery for people who experience chronic neck and back pain caused by degenerative disc disease.

Deby Pierce

"Dr. Patel and all of his staff will definitely ease your pain and worries. Having Spinal Stenosis, knee problems as well as ankle problems they have made my life so much better. My last treatment was 2 years and 3 months ago. I just did a second treatment this week. Before that I was getting spinal epidurals every 3 months and living on ibuprofen and pain prescriptions. I haven't had that anymore. It's been 2 years and 3 months. He offers so much care and spends all the time in the world with you."

Mary Allwright

"My meniscus was disintegrating. After my platelet treatment, is now whole. It is a constant source of wonder to me that sidewalk curbs which used to seem like climbing Mount Everest are no longer a challenge. Seven months out, I’m still experiencing small improvements in mobility that I didn’t even realize I had lost. An altogether life-affirming experience."

Eva Cardenas

"I am extremely thankful for everything Dr. Patel and his staff have done for my husband. Dr. Patel was very thorough during the evaluation and answered all of our questions very carefully. During my husband’s Spine PRP procedure, everyone made him feel very comfortable and everything went very smooth. My husband is now doing great. Thank you so much for everything!"

Courtney Carini

"I owe Dr. Patel my life. When I came to him I was in level 10 pain constantly, and had been bed ridden for several months. After 3 PRP treatments I am now a fully functioning human with zero pain throughout most of each day! I can even go back to activities like working out, dancing, and aerial arts! The diet and supplements he put me on even got rid of my migraines - something I've seen specialists for since I was 12!!! This man is brilliant, kind, funny, and extremely patient. He will sit with you and answer every little question you have and geek out with you on the science behind it. I literally trust him with my life."
