Spinal Bone Spurs

What are Spinal Bone Spurs?

Spinal Bone Spurs, also known as osteophytes, are bony projections that form along the edges of bones in the spine. While they can be a part of the natural aging process, they often result from the body's attempt to repair itself by building extra bone. Bone spurs can cause pain and discomfort when they rub against other bones or press on nerves.

Symptoms of Spinal Bone Spurs

Symptoms may not always be present with spinal bone spurs, but when they do occur, they can include localized pain, stiffness, and reduced flexibility in the spine. If bone spurs press on spinal nerves, individuals may experience tingling, numbness, and weakness in the limbs, along with radiating pain that can affect mobility.
