Spinal Fractures

There are various forms of spinal fractures, ranging from compressions, bursts, flexion-distraction or fracture-dislocation. These are usually categorized as stable, unstable, minor or major.

Sacroiliac Joint Dysfunction

Sacroiliac joint dysfunction (SI pain) is pain you feel in your lower back and buttocks. The dysfunction arises from any damage to the joint that connects your spine and hip (the sacroiliac joints).

Pinched Nerves

A pinched nerve can occur when too much pressure is put on one of your nerves by surrounding tissues such as bones, muscles or tendons.

Trust a Neck Injury Surgeon for Pain Relief

Any pain that continues for months could signal an underlying medical condition that needs treatment for neck pain.


Cervical spondylotic myelopathy (spinal cord compression) is a condition in the neck that arises when the spinal cord is squeezed.

Herniated Disc Management

Herniated discs occur when pressure from the vertebrae impacts the discs in between. The herniated disc then presses on nerves, resulting in what can be severe pain.

Disc Degeneration

Disc degeneration refers to back or neck pain caused by normal wear-and-tear on spinal discs, sometimes causing weakness, numbness or shooting pains in the arms or legs.

Compression Fractures

Compression fractures occur when a vertebra (spinal bone) collapses. The skilled specialists at Kayal Pain & Spine Center have the tools and experience necessary to diagnose and address your problem.

Tendinitis is the inflammation and swelling of a tendon, which is the structure that connects to muscle to bone.


A bunion is a common foot deformity that’s characterized by a bump on the side of the big toe. A bunion causes the big toe to angle toward the smaller toes.


Sesamoiditis is a form of tendonitis where the tendons surrounding the sesamoids become irritated or inflamed and is marked by dull, intensifying pain beneath the big toe.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s defense system turns against itself and attacks healthy joints, cartilage and tissues throughout the body, along with damaging blood vessels, nerves and tendons.

Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction

Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD) is caused by overuse and repetitive stress, which results in overstretching and inflammation of the tendon.

Morton’s Neuroma

Morton’s Neuroma is a painful and uncomfortable condition that affects the ball of the foot, most commonly in between the third and fourth toes which causes an individual to feel as if he or she is standing on a pebble that’s stuck in their shoe or a fold in their sock.


Intoeing is a congenital condition in which the toes and feet are turned inward, rather than straight forward.

Ingrown Toenail

An ingrown toenail is triggered by a corner or side of a toenail curving inward and growing into the soft flesh of the toe. Any toe is susceptible to developing the condition.

Heel Pain

There are numerous causes for heel pain, including artharitis, stress fractures and nerve irritation. These occur when individuals spend hours on their feet without support.


Affecting any but the big toe, hammertoe is characterized by a bending of one or both toe joints. The deformity generally worsens over time.

Arthritis of the Foot and Ankle

Arthritis is when the cartilage that once served as a shock absorber for the body’s joints begins to wear away.

Adult-Acquired Flatfoot Deformity

Adult-acquired flatfoot deformity (AAFD) is a painful, progressive condition that occurs when the soft tissues of the foot are overstretched and torn, causing the arch of the foot to collapse.

Ganglion Cysts

Ganglion cysts are harmless tumors, masses or lumps that occur adjacent to joints or tendons, and are most commonly found on the hands and wrists.

Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome

Tarsal tunnel syndrome (TTS) is the compression or squeezing of the tibial nerve, which runs through the tarsal tunnel on the inside of the ankle and leads into the foot, producing pain or a tingling sensation anywhere along the nerve’s pathway.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

The median nerve, controlling touch and movement, passes through the carpal tunnel along with several tendons. If any of those tendons become irritated, the median nerve can become compressed.


Sometimes your nerves stop working properly because they are compressed and damaged as they leave the spine. The resulting pain is referred to as radiculopathy.

Fibula Fracture

A fibula fracture is a relatively common condition that’s characterized by a break in the smaller of the long bones of the lower leg, known as the fibula.

Tibia Fracture

The tibia, or shinbone, is the most common fractured long bone in your body. The long bones include the femur, humerus, tibia and fibula.

Tibial Plateau Fracture

A tibial plateau fracture involves the cartilage surface of the knee joint.

Patellar Fracture

The patella, or your kneecap, is a small bone located in front of your knee joint. Due to the fact that your patella acts as a shield for your knee joint, it can easily be broken.

Femur Fracture

A femur fracture is a break in the thighbone.

Scaphoid Fracture

A scaphoid fracture usually occurs when you fall onto an outstretched hand, with your weight landing on your palm.

Hand & Finger Fractures

When you fracture a finger bone, it can cause your whole hand to be out of alignment.

Distal Radius Fracture (Broken Wrist)

A fracture of the distal radius occurs when the area of the radius near the wrist breaks.

Vertebral Compression Fracture

Vertebral compression fractures (VCFs) occur when the bony block or vertebral body in the spine collapses, which can lead to severe pain, deformity and loss of height.

Fractures of the humerus typically occur as the result of a trauma, such as a fall where the individual lands directly on the shoulder, a forceful collision, or a more complicated event, such as a car accident.

Jones Fracture

A Jones fracture is usually caused by stress that’s placed across the bone when the heel is off the ground and the forefoot is planted.

Lisfranc (Midfoot) Injury

Lisfranc injuries result if bones in the midfoot are broken or if ligaments that support the midfoot are torn.

Ankle Fractures

A broken ankle is also known as an ankle fracture. This means that one or more of the bones that make up the ankle joint are broken.

Talus Fractures

When a fracture to the talus occurs, patients will feel acute pain, difficulty with bearing weight, and swelling or tenderness around the ankle joint.

Ankle Sprains & Strains

Ankle sprains are caused by an injury that stresses a joint and overstretches the supporting ligaments, which connect bone to bone. Ankle strains are caused when too much force is placed on muscles or tendons, which connect muscle to bone.

Muscle Spasms

A muscle spasm is an involuntary, sustained contraction of the muscle fibers in response to injury or inflammation.

Pinched Nerve

Pinched nerves, also referred to as cervical radiculopathy, can occur in different parts of the body—from the neck down to the lumbar spine.

Plantar Fasciitis

In plantar fasciitis, the patient suffers from microscopic tears, inflammation and stiffness of the ligament.

Achilles Tendon Tear & Rupture

Your Achilles tendon may tear if it is overstretched, usually while playing sports.

Achilles Tendonosis

The Achilles tendon can withstand great stresses from running and jumping, but it is also prone to tendonosis, a condition associated with overuse and degeneration.

Patellar Subluxation/Dislocation

A patellar dislocation occurs when the kneecap is displaced from the thighbone, and the joint surfaces are no longer touching. A subluxation is a similar injury, where the kneecap becomes displaced, but the joint surfaces are still touching.

Dupuytren’s Contractures

Dupuytren's contracture is a hand deformity that usually develops over years.

De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis

De Quervain's tenosynovitis, or tendonosis, is a painful condition that occurs when the tendons around the base of the thumb are irritated or constricted.

Wrist Sprains & Strains

A sprain is an injury to a ligament, which is a strong band of connective tissue that connects one bone to another. A wrist sprain is a common injury, as there are many ligaments in the wrist that can be stretched or torn.

Ulnar Collateral Ligament Injury

The ulnar collateral ligament may become stretched or even torn due to a single traumatic episode—or more commonly, repetitive stress, such as throwing a baseball.


Medial collateral ligament (MCL) and lateral collateral ligament (LCL) sprains are knee injuries.
