Spinal Bone Spurs

A spinal bone spur is a bone growth that has been formed as the body has tried to heal another problem. While not all spinal bone spurs will become problematic, when they do, the pain and other symptoms can become quite intense at times. A spinal bone spur can develop anywhere along the spine, but are most often problematic in the lower back and neck.

How Do I Know if I have Spinal Bone Spurs?

Spinal bone spur symptoms include pain that radiates along the nerve path into the arms or legs. Numbness, tingling, and a pins and needles sensation are also common spinal bone spur symptoms. The longer the condition progresses the more compression the spur will place on surrounding nerves which may lead to muscular weakness, and loss of motor function.
