About Dr. Thurman

Trevin Thurman, MD, is a Harvard-trained, board-certified physician, specializing in pain and sports medicine at Vitality Spine & Sports Medicine in Sawtelle within West Los Angeles. He takes a patient-focused approach to care and provides expert treatment for spine and peripheral joint disorders, with an emphasis on healing without surgery. 

After earning his Doctor of Medicine at the University of Utah School of Medicine in Salt Lake City, Dr. Thurman went on to complete his medical internship at United Health Service Hospitals in Binghamton, New York. He then completed his physical medicine and rehabilitation residency at the prestigious Harvard Medical School in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

While at Harvard, Dr. Thurman was honored to serve as the resident team physician for the New England Patriots and the Boston Red Sox. To further his skill set, Dr. Thurman received fellowship training in pain management at the University of Washington in Seattle. He is board-certified in pain medicine, sports medicine, and physical medicine and rehabilitation. 

Dr. Thurman also had the opportunity to serve as a fellowship faculty instructor in the Spine and Sports Medicine Department at Harvard before going into private practice. 

Growing up in the mountains of Yellowstone National Park, Dr. Thurman has combined his small town bedside manner with his Ivy League training to provide compassionate, comprehensive, and innovative care to his patients. His approach is to first conduct a thorough evaluation to establish a conclusive diagnosis and then the most effective treatment. 

When it comes to patient care, Dr. Thurman always considers the most natural method to heal the body, which may include modalities such as physical therapy, chiropractic care, and diet modification. He also offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and stem cell injections using Harvard techniques and preparations, which provide for better healing than traditional preparations.

Dr. Thurman is also the only physician in Los Angeles to offer a cutting-edge treatment to relieve pain without surgery: Selective ablation of sensory nerves to the hip, shoulder, knee, and sacroiliac joint. For procedures, he uses tiny needles only slightly thicker than a hair so patients can return to their usual lives the next day, resuming both recreational and occupational activities.

At Vitality Spine & Sports Medicine, Dr. Thurman always puts patient needs first. To schedule a consultation, call the office or use the online booking feature today.
