Bone Spurs

Bone Spurs

Bone spurs, also known as osteophytes, are bony calcium growths that develop on the end of bones and may cause pain and irritation as they rub against nerves and other bones.

Bone spurs can form on nearly any bone in the body, and are most common in the joints. The symptoms of bone spurs vary depending on the location. Bone spurs in the spine may be particularly painful, but many others do not cause any symptoms. In fact, many patients do not know that they have bone spurs for many years.

When in the spine, bone spurs can lead to Spinal Stenosis which can lead to radiating pain in the arms or legs dependent upon the source (neck or back.)
