What Causes Neck Pain?

For many adults, chronic neck pain is a disruptive reality, affecting their ability to work and enjoy daily activities. If you're among those grappling with persistent neck discomfort, Dr. Bruce Fishman, our esteemed orthopedic surgery and cellular therapy expert, offers solutions. Alongside his dedicated team, Dr. Fishman employs advanced cellular and acellular injections to target damaged tissues, fostering biological healing and relieving neck pain. Sprains and strains are the primary culprits behind neck pain, often resulting from the strains imposed by routine activities on ligaments and muscles. Additionally, traumatic incidents like sports injuries or car accidents frequently lead to neck discomfort. Sprains and strains are the primary culprits behind neck pain, often resulting from the strains imposed by routine activities on ligaments and muscles. Additionally, traumatic incidents like sports injuries or car accidents frequently lead to neck discomfort.

Moreover, advancing age can introduce neck pain through degenerative conditions such as:

Reason #1

Herniated Discs

With advancing age, the intervertebral discs in the neck may undergo wear and tear, leading to herniated discs. These discs, which act as cushions between the vertebrae, can bulge or rupture, causing pressure on nearby nerves. This pressure can result in neck pain, as well as symptoms such as arm pain, numbness, or weakness.

Reason #2

Facet Joint Arthritis

Facet joints in the neck can become arthritic over time due to wear and tear. Arthritis in these joints can lead to inflammation, stiffness, and pain in the neck. The facet joints play a crucial role in providing stability and allowing movement in the neck, so arthritis in these joints can significantly impact neck function.

Reason #3

Bone Spurs

Also known as osteophytes, bone spurs can develop on the edges of the vertebrae in the neck as a result of degeneration. These bony growths can protrude into the spinal canal or nerve roots, causing pain and discomfort. Bone spurs may also contribute to spinal stenosis, a condition characterized by narrowing of the spinal canal.

Reason #4

Thickened Ligaments

Over time, the ligaments that support the vertebrae in the neck may become thicker and less flexible. This thickening can contribute to stiffness and reduced mobility in the neck. Additionally, thickened ligaments can compress nearby structures, leading to pain and discomfort.

Reason #5

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis refers to the narrowing of the spinal canal, which can occur due to various degenerative changes in the spine, including herniated discs, bone spurs, and thickened ligaments. This narrowing can put pressure on the spinal cord and nerves, resulting in neck pain, as well as symptoms such as tingling, numbness, or weakness in the arms and hands.

Reason #6

Degenerative Disc Disease

Degenerative disc disease involves the gradual breakdown of the intervertebral discs in the neck. As these discs degenerate, they lose their ability to absorb shock and provide cushioning between the vertebrae. This can lead to neck pain, stiffness, and reduced flexibility. Additionally, degenerative changes in the discs can contribute to other conditions such as herniated discs and spinal stenosis.

While sprains and strains cause pain due to damaged soft tissues and inflammation, degenerative ailments may exert pressure on nerves, leading to cervical radiculopathy—a common source of discomfort.

What Kind Of Neck Pain Can Benefit From Cellular Biologic Therapy?

Biocellular therapy is a versatile treatment option for addressing different forms of neck pain. Whether you're experiencing chronic neck discomfort, acute pain from injuries like sprains and strains, or neck pain related to degenerative conditions, cellular therapy can offer relief and promote healing.

Here are some specific types of neck pain that biocellular therapy can address:

Biocellular therapy targets the underlying causes of chronic neck pain, providing long-lasting relief and improving overall neck function.

Sprains and strains in the neck muscles and ligaments can lead to considerable discomfort and limited mobility. Biocellular therapy accelerates the healing process, reducing inflammation and restoring strength to the affected tissues.

Conditions such as herniated discs, facet joint arthritis, bone spurs, and spinal stenosis can cause persistent neck pain and related symptoms. Biocellular therapy helps repair damaged tissues, alleviate pain, and improve neck function in individuals with these degenerative conditions.

Traumatic events like sports injuries or car accidents can result in acute neck pain and soft tissue injuries. Biocellular therapy promotes tissue regeneration, reduces inflammation, and enhances recovery following traumatic neck injuries.

By harnessing the regenerative potential of adult stem cells, biocellular therapy offers a nonsurgical, minimally invasive approach to treating a wide range of neck pain issues. Whether you’re seeking relief from chronic discomfort or recovering from a recent neck injury, biocellular therapy can provide targeted and effective treatment tailored to your individual needs.

How Does Cellular Biologic Therapy Alleviate Neck Pain?

Cellular biologics are distributed throughout your body. When you experience neck pain, they naturally migrate to the affected area, where they play multiple roles: regenerating new tissues, controlling inflammation, and releasing biochemicals like nanovesicles and cytokines to promote healing.

During cellular therapy for neck pain, a concentrated amount of biological materials is directly injected into the injured tissues. These injected cellular biologics work diligently to alleviate neck pain by facilitating tissue healing and repair.

Why Is Cellular Therapy A Preferred Treatment Over Surgery For Neck Pain?


Cellular therapy offers a non-surgical alternative for treating neck pain, eliminating the need for invasive procedures.

Minimal Downtime

Compared to surgery, cellular therapy typically involves minimal downtime, allowing patients to resume their normal activities more quickly.

Reduced Risk

Cellular therapy carries lower risks of complications compared to surgical interventions, including infection, anesthesia-related issues, and surgical site complications.

Targeted Approach

Cellular therapy targets the underlying cause of neck pain, promoting natural healing and tissue regeneration without requiring extensive surgical intervention.

Preservation of Neck Function

Unlike surgery, which may involve removing or altering neck structures, cellular therapy aims to preserve neck function while alleviating pain and promoting healing.

Personalized Treatment

Cellular therapy can be tailored to each patient's specific needs, providing customized treatment plans based on individual factors such as the severity of neck pain and underlying conditions.

Long-term Benefits

Cellular therapy offers the potential for long-term pain relief and improved neck function by addressing the root cause of pain and promoting tissue regeneration.

Hi - I want to leave this review because this facility has one of the most informative, intelligent, kind, and helpful staff by name of Amanda. Amanda is a gem. She spent a lot of time explaining the benefits of the treatments that I was seeking, but also was so HONEST and CONSIDERATE that stated that due to my medical condition, I should not yet seek the desired treatment they office at their facility. Amanda was not only kind, concern, and honest and spoke with much integrity about how I am vulnerable to receive the treatment, but also she offered many many other alternatives that are available and could be helpful. She honestly took such a long time to explain several options, which some did not even was something they offered, but due to my medical condition could be simple and very useful. I may not be able to use their services now and hopefully later, but I am sure going to refer this facility to anyone who is looking to get stem cell treatment.

My mother got a stem cell injection in her hip a few months before her 76th birthday instead of getting another hip replacement. She is so happy with the results and has been living pain free for the past 6+ months. She keeps telling everyone she knows about Dr. Fishman and Stem Cell Institute of Los Angeles and thinks the drive from Riverside County to Encino is worth every penny!
