Depend on cause: If due to excessive tension on tendon or ligament inserting into bone, this must be eliminated. Stop excessive pressure on particular bone involved.

Bone spurs: a surgeon will operate on bone spurs based on how painful these get. If you cant bare weight I recommend getting evaluated for surgery.
