What are Bone Spurs?
A bone spur is a misshaped portion of bone that forms along a bone’s edge, such as near the joint. Bone spurs can also form along the spine on an individual vertebra. Osteoporosis is a leading cause of bone spurs, but they can form for other reasons and health complications. Bone spurs are problematic because they can dig into surrounding soft tissues and cause gradual harm. They might even prevent healing in the area if another injury is suffered.
Symptoms of Bone Spurs
In many cases, bone spurs form and are not noticed for years or decades. It is only when a bone spur grows into a specific shape or size that starts to damage adjacent tissues.
You might have a bone spur if:
- You can’t extend or bend your leg without pain.
- You feel a sharp pain in your foot, knee, leg, or hip when walking.
- You experience numbness in your limbs, which can be caused by a spinal bone spur.
- Your range of motion has gradually declined in one or more joints.

Bone Spurs FAQ
What happens if bone spurs are left untreated?
Untreated bone spurs can cause long-term nerve damage through compression, which, in turn, can lead to muscular weakness and loss of function in the affected body part. For this reason, even “mild” bone spurs justify medical attention and a treatment plan.
Do bone spurs keep growing?
Once a bone spur forms, it will usually continue to “grow” indefinitely. The problem occurs because the bone forms or heals incorrectly, but then continues to make that same formation mistake in the future. Treatments can help stop bone spurs from growing, reduce their size, or minimize the symptoms that they can cause.
What bone spur treatments should I use?
Every bone spur treatment must be personalized to the individual patient’s needs. However, common treatments include physical therapy and off-the-shelf painkillers like acetaminophen and ibuprofen.
Our team of highly experienced medical providers utilize specialized, non-invasive chiropractic treatments to help you experience relief and restore motor function without surgery or drugs.
