Spine-related pain can happen for a number of reasons. One common cause is scoliosis, where the spine curves to one side and places stress on the nerves in that area; however, spinal pain may also be due to other things such as narrowing discs or joints wearing down over time from arthritis or normal aging. Spine injuries and conditions can lead to a variety of difficulties. Luckily, our spine doctor at Torrance Spine Institute is specially trained in diagnosis and treatment for these cases.
