Our Mission

 The philosophy of Southern California Spine & Joint Institute is to provide each individual with the highest quality health care. 


  • Identifying interrelationships between health and lifestyle deficits 

  • Assisting the patient in choosing between traditional medicine, chiropractic care, acupuncture, interventional procedures, physical rehabilitation and alternative approaches 

  • Alleviating pain

  • Restoring functional movement 



"Do you only treat spine and neck?"

We specialize in neck and spine but Dr. Kelling and his staff are highly trained and able to help treat knees, hips and shoulders.

"Do you offer gel injections?"

Yes! We do offer gel injections for knee pain. Please call our office for more details.

"My doctor says I need surgery, can you help me avoid that?"

Yes! We offer several alternative procedures and treatments to help keep our patients from

surgery whenever possible! While no procedure is 100% guaranteed to eliminate chronic pain, we promise to do our very best to get you back to living life with less pain without surgical intervention.

"I tweaked my back playing golf, can you help me get back on the course?

Yes! We offer several procedures depending on your area of pain to get you back on the tees in no time!

"I need someone to prescribe my pain management medications for me, can you do that?"

We recommend contacting your primary care provider for this. Our friendly staff is also available to provide other pain management providers in the area that offer this service.
