Bone Spurs

Surgical or non-surgical treatment of uncomfortable or unsightly Bone Spurs, for improved comfort and appearance.

Are painful Bone Spurs making it uncomfortable to stay mobile? For those concerned with the discomfort, and appearance of a Bone Spur (Bony Spur) there are surgical and non-surgical options to help ease the pain and discomfort, and restore the appearance of the feet.

A bone spur is a spike of bone (osteophyte or exostosis) that usually forms at a joint interface or at the location of a tendon or ligament attachment. It appears as a hard lump and can cause discomfort either from the lump itself rubbing or when the joint jams because the bony lump is restricting joint motion.

Considerations

What causes Bone Spurs?

Bone Spurs can occur as a result of trauma, joint degeneration (arthritis), or mechanical dysfunction, or it may be congenital (something you are born with).

What are the symptoms of Bone Spurs?

Symptoms commonly include a bony, hard lump that causes pain with movement or irritation with footwear or hosiery. If they grow near a nerve they can cause nerve impingement symptoms, like pins and needles or shooting pains like an electric shock. An X-ray will show the extent of the spur, but sometimes other imaging such as a CT or MRI scan is needed to assess in more detail.

Can a Bone Spur grow back?

Sometimes a bony spur can grow back, but most often once they are resected and any underlying deformity is addressed it is unlikely they should return.
