Bone spurs in feet what could be done

Bone spurs in feet what could be done

I've : 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

Pain medications (other than motrin) are not an answer but can be used as a last resort. ...Read more
