Bone Spurs

Advanced Treatment Options
for a Healthy, Pain-Free Life

Bone Spurs

Bone spurs or osteophytes are mainly caused by the joint damage due to osteoarthritis. These bony projections usually form in the bones of the spine and in joints. HealthQuest specializes in treating a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. At our health care center in Brooklyn, NY, we offer several treatment options for symptomatic bone spurs.

Nonsurgical Treatment Options for Bone Spurs

In many cases, bone spurs may have no symptoms, go undetected, and require no treatment. On the other hand, the presence of osteophytes can cause pain and impair joint mobility in areas such as the knee, spine, hip, shoulder and fingers. Regardless of the joint affected, our health care center offers the solution with nonsurgical pain management modalities. A treatment plan for bone spurs would include the following:

  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications and muscle relaxants
  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Rehabilitation and exercises
  • Physical therapy
  • Chiropractic adjustment
  • Nonsurgical spinal decompression
  • Game ready wrap for faster recovery from pain

Combining these treatments work well to relieve mild to moderate symptoms of bone with the following results:

  • Improves flexibility and strength of the neck and back
  • Reduces joint inflammation and swelling
  • Improves spinal pain
  • Reduces radiating pain syndromes
  • Improves posture

Surgery will be recommended only if the bone spurs seriously limits the patient’s range of motion and the pain does not resolve with our nonsurgical therapies.

Comprehensive Diagnostic Evaluation

HealthQuest’s team comprises health care professionals specialized in fields such as neurology, orthopedics, internal medicine, and rehabilitation. All decisions about treatment are made only after a careful evaluation of the symptoms and how they impact the patient’s health. In addition to a detailed physical exam, X-rays or MRI may be used to view the joints and bones and detect bony spurs.
