Spinal Bone Spurs Surgery at SPINE/RX
What Are Spinal Bone Spurs?
Bone spurs are abnormal bony masses that grow on the exterior of your bones. Spinal bone spurs occur on the vertebrae and can cause damage to the bones, facet joints, discs, and nerves in your spine. This damage can then lead to chronic pain in the neck and back, as well as pain in the extremities, weakness, numbness and decreased mobility. Bone spurs often occur in patients who suffer from osteoarthritis.
How Are Spinal Bone Spurs Treated?
Spinal bone spurs are most typically treated with either one or a combination of the following: rest, medication, physical therapy, chiropractic treatment, injections or surgery.
When Is Surgery Recommended for Spinal Bone Spurs?
Surgery may be recommended for bone spurs if pain does not improve through initial treatment methods, or if you’re experiencing debilitating pain that does not improve with rest, therapy, or injections. Surgery may also be recommended if diagnostic tests detect damage to the spinal cord or nerve roots, or if spine surgeons anticipate any significant risk of future deterioration.
Living with spinal bone spurs can be painful, and may cause you to miss out on the activities you love. If medication or therapy fail to relieve your neck and back pain, spine surgery may provide the relief you need to live the life you desire.
