Antibiotics

Extremity-joint-knee
Antibiotics are the main treatment option. If these don't work opening the area surgically and cleaning it may be necessary. In severe cases the amputation may need to be redone at a higher level.

Hello.

Hello. Have you considered medical accupuncture? Chinese Scalp acupuncture, Auricular Acupuncture, local treatment with electrical stimulation and periosteal tapping are four things that come readily to mind that may be helpful. It is safe, effective and quite non-invasive. The needles are much smaller in diameter than needles used for drawing blood or receiving injections. Take care.

Bone spur "side of heel", treatment?

Need more info

In order to answer this question more information is needed. Some bone spurs are dealt with conservatively and some are surgical issues. I would recommend you see a podiatrist for evaluation and treatment options.

What is the treatment of spur in heel bone?.

Arch supports

Bones
Heel pain, often described as heel spurs or heel spur syndrome is rarely the result of the spur, but instead mechanical overloading and inflammation of the attachment of the plantar fascia to the heel bone. This usually responds well to arch supports, antiinflammatories, injections and stretching. Also frequently due to worn shoes so go ahead and replace with good quality supportive athletic shoes

Dr. Ronald Oberman answered:

What kind of treatment or surgery to fix bone spurs?

Depends

Bone
Treatment is directed at what is the cause of the spur. Is it biomechanical: orthotics would be helpful. Is it due to a tight shoe: change shoes. Is it due to a deformity of some kind. Then this should be addressed. Palliative treatment, including injections can be done. Surgery to remove spur can be performed if indicated.

What are treatment options for bunions or bone spurs?

Shoes / surgery

My understanding of your problem makes me think that you are concerned about bone spurring around your bunion deformity. You may have hallux limitus. This is usually spurring to the top of the joint causing limitation of movement and discomfort. Conservative care consists of a stiffer, thicker soled shoe with good support. Surgery may be needed based on symptoms. See your foot specialists. Dr L
