Thoracic Spine Conditions in Santa Monica, CA
Back Pain in Los Angeles
It’s not uncommon to hear someone complaining about back pain. In fact, a large percentage of individuals, especially Americans, suffer from back pain. This pain can range from a slight discomfort to causing complete disability, depending on the specific condition. Many individuals who suffer from back pain realize they need to consult with a physician, which can often save them years of pain and further degradation. At Marina Spine Center, we are dedicated to helping diagnose and treat conditions that affect the spine, including thoracic (mid-back) pain.
The types of thoracic conditions we treat include:
- Herniated disc
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal stenosis
- Vertebral compression fracture
The vertebrae of the spine are held together by various ligaments, muscles, and tendons. There are discs which fit between the vertebras, keeping them from constantly hitting against one another while moving about. Otherwise, your vertebras might constantly shock each other during activities like running, jumping, or even walking. If something happens to injure any of the crucial parts of your spine, it can cause serious pain and discomfort.
