Bone Spurs – Causes, Symptoms and Treatment

Bone spur is a term used to describe a condition that characterizes the growth of an extra bone on the normal bone. In medical terms, it is known as osteophytes. Bone spur usually takes place on the joints of the spine, feet, shoulders, hips, hands and knees. It is not painful but sometimes causes pain when it rubs against other bones around it. It is more common among people above 60 years of age. It is associated with spine degeneration.

Causes of Bone Spurs

As osteoarthritis breaks down the cartilage in your joint, your body attempts to repair the loss. Often this means creating new areas of bone along the edges of your existing bones. Your body may also create bone spurs to add stability to aging joints. Bone spurs are the hallmark of other diseases and conditions, including:

Spondylosis. In this condition, osteoarthritis and bone spurs cause degeneration of the bones in your neck (cervical spondylosis) or your lower back (lumbar spondylosis).

Spinal stenosis. Bone spurs can contribute to a narrowing of the bones that make up your spine (spinal stenosis), putting pressure on your spinal cord.


Diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH). This condition causes bony growths to form on the ligaments of your spine.

Plantar fasciitis. A bone spur, sometimes called a heel spur, can form where the connective tissue (fascia) connects to your heel bone (calcaneus). The spur results from chronic irritation or inflammation of the connective tissue, but the spur itself doesn’t cause the pain associated with plantar fasciitis.

Signs and symptoms

On your spine, bone spurs can push against your nerves, or even your spinal cord, causing pain and numbness elsewhere in your body.

On your neck, cervical bone spurs can protrude inward, occasionally making it difficult to swallow or painful to breathe. Bone spurs can also push against veins, restricting blood flow to your brain.

In your shoulder, bone spurs can restrict the range of motion of your arm. Bone spurs can rub on your rotator cuff, a group of tendons that help control your shoulder movements. This can cause swelling (tendinitis) and tears in your rotator cuff.

On your neck, cervical bone spurs can protrude inward, occasionally making it difficult to swallow or painful to breathe. Bone spurs can also push against veins, restricting blood flow to your brain.

Treatment of Bone Spurs

Treatment of the symptoms may include rest, ice, stretching, and no steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (Naiads) such as ibuprofen. If the bone spur is in the foot as in plantar fascistic, then esthetics, new footwear and extra padding in the show may help. If severe symptoms persist a physician may also suggest a corticosteroid injection reduce pain and inflammation of the soft tissues next to the bone spur.

Take an ice pack and apply it on the inflamed bone spur area 4-5 times in a day. If the problem doesn’t get cured, then apply heating pads.

Stand with the balls of your feet on the edge of a stair or curb and your heels over the edge. Relax your calf muscles and let your heels drop down slightly, until you feel the stretch along the Achilles tendons on the back of your heels.

Degenerative Disc or Spondylosis best of Ayurveda

Posted: Aug 24, 2010 |Comments: 0

Degeneration of the disc is medically referred to as “Spondylosis”. Spondylosis can be noted on X-ray tests or MRI scanning of the Spine as a narrowing of the normal “disc space” between the adjacent vertebrae.

Degeneration of the disc tissue makes the disc more susceptible to ‘Herniation’. Degeneration of the disc can cause local pain in the affected area. Any level of the spine can be affected by disc degeneration. When disc degeneration affects the Spine of the neck, it is referred to as “Cervical disc disease”. When the mid-back is affected, the condition is referred to as “Thoracic disc disease”. Disc degeneration that affects the Lumbar Spine is referred to as “Lumbar disc disease or Lumbago”. Lumbago causes pain localized to the low back and is common in older people.

In the past, a patient suffering from Disc problems may have been prescribed Pain killers / Medications, Instructed to refrain from physical activities, referred for Physiotherapy, received Steroidal Shots or Injections, and when they weren’t progressing, they were sent for Spinal Surgery. Frankly speaking only 5% of Back pains require Surgeries, the other 95% can be dealt with Conservative & Curative Ayurveda Panchakarma Chikitsa & Rejuvenation Procedures.

Today, you may not have to live with that pain anymore. Meru Chikitsa (Ayurveda Neuro Therapy) enables patients to return to more active lifestyles. Marma chikitsa along with Vatahara Chikitsa and Brumhana Chikitsa are given utmost importance.

AYURVEDA TREATMENTS for Disc Problems mainly include Abhyangam( A whole body massage with specific herbal oils, achieves deepest healing effects by naturally harmonizing Body, Mind, Soul and the Senses), Nadi Swedam(medicated steam bath), Elakizhi (herbal leaf bundle massage), Pizhichil (medicated oil bath), Kati Vasthi & Greeva Vasthi( a treatment done on to the back to decrease spinal compression), Vasthi( medicated enema) Virechanam

( purgation) and other Ayurvedic procedures are performed according to the severity,  age of the patient for a period of 7/14/21/28 days, thus treating the underlying cause of the disease without any side effects.


Ayurvedaprovides the best treatments and cure for all the Spinal ailments like: Herniated Discs, Bulging Discs, Degenerative Disc Disease, Sciatica Syndrome, Spondylosis (Cervical /Lumbar/ Ankylosing)with accuracy and without recurrence.
