Bone Spur On A Finger I Thought Only Heels Got Spurs
Likely bony spur.: Bony spurs develop as one gets older, from wear and tear on joints, etc. These are bony projections that form along joint margins. This can also happen in the neck and spinal column. Spurs can also appear on the feet, along toes, the heel, as well as on the hands. In extreme cases bone spurs have grown along a person's entire skeletal structure. They're important since they can be near nerves. ...Read more

I have pain in the fourth toe of my left foot, it feels broken when i walk a lot or wear tighter shoes. It feels numb without shoes on. I did x-rays and MRI and morton's neuroma was ruled out. Help?
It : It of course matters where the bony prominence is, but this may represent arthritis in your midfoot. It likely hurts because of the degeneration of the cartilage in the joint and the load your body puts on it with weight bearing. Various treatments, like anti-inflammatory medications, arch supports and sometimes even surgeries to fuse the degenerated joint(s) together can help a lot! sometimes the problem is a tight heelcord and stretching that may help as well. Good luck! ...Read more

I have pain in my left heel for a month now. How can I tell if it's plantar fascitis or a bone spur or a fracture of the heel bone? Thanks.
A spur and fascitis: are for all intents and purposes treated the same way. An xray lets you know if the spur is present, and fascitis is said to be diagnosed via ultrasound or MRI as having fascia with a thickness greater than 3mm. A fracture usually presents different than the others. Pain usually doesn't ease up as you start to walk on it, and there is pain on compression of the heel. An MRI helps make the diagnosis. ...Read more

Hammertoe: The procedure that you are asking about is called an arthroplasty and it involves removing a piece of bone from a toe which will cause the toe to be realigned. Most of the time you will be placed in a surgical shoe with possible crutches for a couple of days after the surgery. You will also have stitches which will either need to be removed or will dissolve on there own. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Was reaching on tippy toes heard a crack come from Achilles what could this be? I have a calcaneal spur. I thought it was bubble wrap that's sound.
Was it loud?: If you heard what sounded like a big pop or gun shot then it could be an achilles rupture. Is there swelling there? I would see your local sports med doc and have them ultrasound the area or MRI it to take a look at it. If fully rupture this could require surgery. If not ruptured but strained then you may be able to do pt and immobiliization. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
