When you have back pain, it can make everyday activities such as climbing stairs, driving a car or even sitting a challenge. Your spine and spinal cord are part of a complex network that serves many interconnected functions — from serving as your body’s structural support to helping you feel raindrops or sense temperature changes.


The types of injuries and causes of back pain vary widely. They can range from spine conditions present at birth, such as congenital scoliosis, to sports injuries, or arthritis- or aging-related degenerative disc conditions.

Whether you’re seeking preventive education, treatment for spine conditions or urgent care for a spinal cord injury, you'll benefit from the combined expertise of the spine care team at El Camino Health. From convenient outpatient procedures to overnight hospital stays in our comfortable private rooms, we offer services and surroundings that fulfill your healthcare needs.
