I've been hesitant to answer your question because it's simply too vague. Please repost your question, but indicate where these spurs are. Do they hurt, and if so, is it dependent on walking, shoes, weather, etc.? How long have you been in pain or had these spurs? Have you done anything to try to help your pain, and if so, what? And finally, how is the general state of your health, what is your age, gender and weight?
I know i'm asking you far more questions than you asked, but it's impossible to give you a meaningful answer, which i would honestly like to do, without knowing more details. The greater the detail, the more meaningful the answer.
Thanks! ...Read more

Bone spurs: This is a difficult question to answer without more exact info. I am assuming you have metatarsal bones that are bulging against the bottom of the foot, causing pain and possible painful callus/corn formation. Treatments include orthotic devices to reduce the abnormal pressures or surgery to improve the weightbearing balance amongst the bones. Recovery from that is usually a few weeks. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: Where spurs are. Many form from ecessive tension on tendons or ligament at attachment to bone. Sometimes excessive pressure from shoe or other bone can cause this as well as. Key to alleviating symptoms is to remove tension or pressure. Only way to actually remove spur is with surgery, but this may not be necessary if symptoms can be relieved in other ways. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Bone spurs: There are relatively few doctors whose initial management plan for painful bone spurs would be just pain medication. Ideally the doctor should get to the cause of the problem (usually excessive weight bearing). A steroid shot may help; in a few cases, surgery will help.
