Roselle Foot Doctor

Heel Spurs Roselle

One little known condition that our Roselle foot doctor often uncovers in our patients here at AFP Podiatry is the development of bone spurs. A bone spur is a small growth that develops along the edge of a bone. Bone spurs can often form where your bones come together, your joints, and also on the bones of your spine. Our Roselle foot doctor treats bone spurs that occur in the foot area. Bone spurs are most often caused by the stress put on the joints for people who suffer from osteoarthritis, and so our Roselle foot doctor often notices the development of bone spurs in our arthritic patients here at AFP Podiatry.

Many patients are unaware that they have bone spurs until our Roselle foot doctor points it out to them, because bone spurs often develop without presenting any noticeable symptoms. In some cases, bone spurs do not even require treatment. For some patients, however, there are some symptoms that alert them to the problem, including pain and loss of motion in the joints. If you are experiencing pain or loss of motion in the joints of your foot, and especially if you already know that you suffer from osteoarthritis, you should schedule an appointment with our foot doctor right away so that we can evaluate your symptoms and confirm a diagnosis. We will likely use an x-ray in order to get a good look at your foot and confirm the presence of a bone spur.

If your bone spur is causing you pain, our Roselle foot doctor might recommend that you use over-the-counter pain relievers like ibuprofen or naproxen in order to give you some relief. If the bone spur is limiting your range of motion or causing other similar complications, we may recommend surgical removal of the bone spur in order to resolve your symptoms and protect you from more advanced complications and decreased quality of life.
