Once the doctor analyzes your symptoms and clinical history, they will perform a physical examination, in which they will observe the painful areas in search of protuberances. They will ask you to perform various movements to determine your dynamic limitations.
If found, they will request imaging studies to confirm the diagnosis, such as:
- Computed tomography.
Most bone spurs have no symptoms and do not require treatment unless they cause problems. In that case, treatment consists of:
- Weight loss.
- Physical therapy.
When conservative treatment does not work, surgery will be necessary to remove bone spurs.
