Caring Medical is one of the few clinics in the world that specialize in regenerative treatments for painful neck conditions and cervical spine instability.
Our team of providers developed the Caring Cervical Realignment Therapy to help our patients recover using Prolotherapy solutions as well as other cervical stabilizing and realignment techniques. Drawing from over 25 years of experience, Caring Medical has become one of the largest chronic pain clinics in the United States.

Prolotherapy is the regenerative injection treatment that stimulates repair of damaged ligaments, which are the key tissue allowing for proper neck motion. When they are weak or damaged, neck pain, instability, disc bulges, pinched nerves, and a host of other painful neck injuries can occur. Our specialists utilize techniques that treat the entire neck, not just one or two injections.
Stem cell injections and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) are also forms of Prolotherapy, which are often performed for accelerated recovery in more severe cases.
Patients seeking neck pain treatment often schedule unnecessary neck surgeries such as cervical fusion surgery or spinal stenosis surgery. Spine surgery comes with many risks and can have disappointing long-term effects that result in additional surgeries.
The approach at Caring Medical aims to improve and preserve the stability and integrity of the spine by non-surgically repairing the damaged tissue. We utilize Digital Motion X-ray and Musculoskeletal Ultrasound to visualize the extent of the cervical spine instability, pinched nerves, torn ligaments, or other damage.
The unique and comprehensive approach provides ideal long-term results for neck pain and symptom resolution, not just pain “management.”

“My cervical fusion pain was finally relieved with Prolotherapy treatment”
M.R. received a cervical fusion after falling from a ladder, but symptoms worsened despite fusion and rehabilitation. Three years later she underwent Prolotherapy. After her initial treatment, M.R. experienced sustained relief from headaches, dizziness, insomnia and neck pain for the first time in years.
What if I have already tried PRP or other regenerative injection therapy for neck pain?
If you did not experience long-term success with PRP or other regenerative therapy, there are likely many reasons why it did not work for you. That is not to say that you are not a good candidate for Platelet Rich Plasma for neck pain, but there are many important differences in the quality of care and the validity of available treatments. It is likely that the clinician who injected you did not actually address the underlying cause of your neck pain. If you only received one single injection, the primary risks of spine arthritis, disc degeneration, cervical instability, herniated disc, or radiculopathy could not possibly have been addressed. In our own studies, and in the medical literature at large, the most effective regenerative injection therapies require injections that cover the whole area. As opposed to the one-shot-wonder PRP approach, our comprehensive technique consist of typically 40-50 injections at each treatment. This is why it is called “Comprehensive Prolotherapy” or “Comprehensive Platelet Rich Plasma Prolotherapy.”
How many treatments are needed?
Most patients require 3-6 total treatments for neck pain. While some patients may require only 1-2 treatments for complete neck pain and symptom relief, the treatments stimulate the body to repair, and build upon each other. When the neck has significant damage from arthritis or traumatic injury, more widespread areas of the joint need to be repaired in order to restore spinal stability and relieve pain. Long-term tissue repair occurs over the course of a few treatments and continues to repair well after the final treatment. This is how our bodies repair and our protocols are designed to maximize this natural process. The protocols pioneered by Caring Medical since 1993 are among the most comprehensive in the field. We strive to get patients long-lasting results in as few treatments as possible. Our goal is pain and symptom cure, not pain and symptom management!
Does government Medicare or Medicaid cover the treatments?
We are not a Medicare or Medicaid provider. Medicare/Medicaid does not cover Regenerative Medicine services.
Does my private insurance cover Prolotherapy, PRP, or Stem Cell Therapy?
Most patients receive at least some reimbursement for treatment when they submit the itemized statement that we provide after each treatment. Health Saving Account and Flexible Spending Account funds can also be used to cover treatments. We are an out of network provider. If you have only seen your insurance network doctors for help with your neck pain, you have probably been offered pain prescriptions, physical therapy, cortisone injections, or an MRI and surgical referral. Isn’t it exciting to discover there is a whole other side of medicine that saves people from unnecessary spinal fusion or other neck surgery and gets patients OFF pain medications, versus getting people started on opioids and other pain prescriptions? This is what Regenerative Medicine is all about!
How much do treatments cost?
Compared to the cost of surgery, MRI, and many other traditional treatments, regenerative spine treatments are an affordable alternative, especially for patients who do not want to go through a surgical procedure. Prolotherapy for the neck starts at $900 per treatment. When PRP is added, the treatment cost does go up to cover the cost of collecting and processing the cells, and is approximately $1,500 per treatment.
What forms of payment are accepted?
Our clinics accept all major credit cards and/or cash.
