About Osteophytes:

Bone spurs are bony projections that develop on bone edges. Bone spurs (osteophytes) usually form wherever bones meet one another — in your joints. They can also form on the bones of your spine.

The main reason behind bone spurs is the joint damage related to Osteoarthritis. Most bone spurs cause no symptoms and may go undiscovered for years. They might not require treatment. If treatment is required, it depends on wherever spurs are located and the way they have an effect on your health.

Symptoms
Most bone spurs cause no signs or symptoms. You might not notice you’ve got bone spurs until an X-ray for an additional condition reveals the growths. In some cases, though, bone spurs can cause pain and loss of motion in your joints.

Specific symptoms depend upon wherever the bone spurs square measure. Examples include:
• Knee. Bone spurs in your knee will build it painful to increase and bend your leg.
• Spine. On your vertebrae, bone spurs can narrow the area that contains your spinal cord. These bone spurs can pinch the neural structure or its nerve roots and may cause weakness or numbness in your arms or legs.
• Hip. Bone spurs can make it painful to maneuver your hip, though you may feel the pain in your knee. depending on their placement, bone spurs can reduce the variety of motion in your hip joint.

When to see a doctor

Make an appointment with your doctor if you’ve got pain or swelling in one or a lot of joints or if you’ve got problems moving a joint.

Causes

Joint damage from osteoarthritis is the most common reason for bone spurs. As osteoarthritis breaks down the cartilage cushioning the ends of your bones, your body makes an attempt to repair the loss by creating bone spurs close to the broken space.

Risk factors
The risk of bone spurs is higher in people that have arthritis.
