About Us
SameDay Spine Institute is a center of excellence
for patients with a wide range of spinal
disorders/conditions. All of our doctors are board
certified and specialize in minimally invasive
treatments of the spine. Our multidisciplinary
approach allows us to treat the patient with the
best option available for their particular
condition.
Every patient responds differently to care, so each
patient must be evaluated with that in mind. This is
why we offer a wide variety of procedures that can
be tailored to the patients symptoms and condition.
Our doctors have years of training and experience. In fact, many of them teach courses, develop
products and are featured in journal articles. They also treat many athletes across the country in
nearly all sports.
Our international market has grown significantly due to the lack of technology and duration of wait
time for surgery. We make it easy and affordable for international patients to come to the US for
their procedures. We make it a headache free experience. Our staff is trained and more than happy
to help with all of your arrangements. Please contact us to learn more about the procedures we offer
and how we can help you get back to doing the things you enjoy.

Conditions
1) Bulging Disc
Bulging intervertebral discs usually remain symptomless; however, they may cause discomfort and
disability in various parts of the body if the disc compresses an adjacent nerve root.
What is a bulging disc?
A bulging disc is a spinal disc that is protruding beyond
its normal boundaries.
When does a bulging disc occur?
Causes of bulging discs can vary from patient to patient.
Bulging discs occur with weakening of the outer fibrous
containment ring of the disc, which is often age related.

What Is The Right Treatments For Me?
A Bulging Disc treatment will vary, depending on the location of the bulging disc, the severity of the
symptoms and how long the symptoms have been occurring. Most bulging discs are treated
effectively with conservative treatment.

2) Pinched Nerve
What is pinched nerve?
The term pinched nerve describes one type of damage
or injury to a nerve or set of nerves. "Pinched nerve" is
often used as a catch phrase for all injuries resulting
from compression, constriction, or stretching.
Where does a pinched nerve occur?
A pinched nerve can occur just about anywhere in your
body. For example, a herniated disc in your lower spine
may put pressure on a nerve root, that can pain to travel
down the back of your leg (sciatica).
What Is The Right Treatments For Me?
NSAIDs -Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin or ibuprofen to reduce
swelling.
Oral corticosteroids -These are used to reduce swelling and pain.
Narcotics -These are used for brief periods to reduce severe pain.
Steroid injections -These injections may reduce swelling and allow inflamed nerves to recover.
Splint -A splint or soft collar limits motion and allows muscles to rest for brief periods.

3) Spinal Stenosis
What is Spinal stenosis?
Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the open spaces
within your spine, which can put pressure on your
spinal cord and the nerves that travel through the spine.
Spinal stenosis occurs most often in the neck and lower
back.
What are the causes of Spinal stenosis?
Spinal stenosis is most commonly caused by wear-andtear changes in the spine related to aging. In severe
cases of spinal stenosis, doctors may recommend
surgery to create additional space for the spinal cord or
nerves.
What Is The Right Treatments For Me?
Physical Therapy -A therapist will work with you to show you how to properly stretch and
exercise and build your core and surrounding muscles.
Rest -Some rest in the early stages of your injury is fine, but do not take too much time as your
muscle may weaken without use leading to further injury.
NSAID -This abbreviation stands for non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Over the counter
versions may include Advil, Aleve, or other generic brands of medicine containing ibuprofen.

4) Disc Disease or Spondylosis
What is Degenerative Disc Disease or spondylosis?
Degenerative Disc Disease, or spondylosis is not a
disease per say but rather a condition involving the
gradual degeneration of the spine's intervertebral discs.
Where does Degenerative Disc Disease occur?
Degeneration of the disc tissue makes the disc more
susceptible to herniation and can cause local pain in
the affected area. When disc degeneration affects the
neck, it is referred to as cervical Disc Disease.
What Is The Right Treatments For Me?
Usually the symptoms associated with Degenerative Disc Disease can be managed with
conservative care options. The most common exercises for this condition include: Spinal traction,
which involves stretching your back, Yoga, ball stretches or wall pushups and low impact aerobic
activities such as swimming, bicycling, and walking. However, if symptoms persist, Degenerative
Disc Disease surgery might be recommended.

5) Facet Joint Disease
What is Facet Joint Disease or Facet Joint
Syndrome?
The facet joints are part of the connection between two
adjacent vertebrae. Facet joint disease is a condition that
affects the facet joints as they degenerate from years of
wear and tear or or repetitive stresses and strains over
time as they are almost constantly in motion.
How does Facet Joint Disease occur?
Facet joint disease causes can vary from person to
person, but in most cases, the pain is caused by a
breakdown or thinning of the cartilage on the facet joint. Aging, Repetitive trauma, accidents,
injuries, poor posture, or work-related activities are also causes of facet joint disease.
What Is The Right Treatments For Me?
Over the counter drugs -These may include Advil, Aleve, or other generic brands of medicine
containing ibuprofen.
Relax -Some rest in the early stages of your injury is fine, but do not overdo it as too much time
can weaken your muscles, leading to further injury.
Ice and Heat -Start with Ice for the first three days following your injury and then mix in heat.
Physio Therapy -A therapist will work with you to show you how to properly stretch and exercise
and build your core and surrounding muscles.

6) Foraminal Stenosis
What is Foraminal Stenosis?
The term “stenosis” refers to a narrowing, while
“foraminal” refers to the open spaces through which
spinal nerves travel. The narrowing of major nerve
passageways can compress or pinch spinal nerves,
causing pain and interruption of important nerve
functions.
What causes Foraminal Stenosis?
Aging-related disc degeneration is the main cause of
foraminal stenosis. Our discs gradually lose their elasticity and can easily become bulged or
herniated as we age. Herniations narrow the spaces in the spine and press on the nerves.
What Is The Right Treatments For Me?
Physio Therapy -A therapist will work with you to show you how to properly stretch and exercise
and build your core and surrounding muscles.
Activity modification -Activity modification such as learning better posture or what triggers your
pain and learning ways to avoid it may be a good way to avoid painful flare ups of symptoms
