Thoracic Spine Disorders
Sandwiched between the cervical and lumbar spine, the thoracic spine includes the upper back region. The 12 vertebrae and cushioning spinal discs in the thoracic spine have more support than the lumbar or cervical spine from the attached ribcage, but they can still sustain damage from injury and disease. At DOCS Health, we offer advanced interventional pain treatments and surgical solutions for thoracic spine disorders at our medical center in Los Angeles, CA.
The thoracic spine may not move as much as the lumbar or cervical spine, but it does endure strain. It is the largest section of the spine, making up half of the combined vertebrae of all three sections. Poor posture and lifting can cause wear and tear on the discs and vertebrae in the thoracic spine. Degenerative disease, injuries and many spinal conditions can impact the thoracic spine, causing pain and neurological dysfunction. Our neurospine surgeons at DOCS Health can provide accurate diagnosis for thoracic spine disorders and begin an effective treatment plan to provide pain and symptom relief.
