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. ...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.

What are treatment options for painful TMD? I have crepitus, pain and spasms. X-rays showed bone spurs and flattening in the joint.
Depends: If you've had imaging of the joint, I assume you've had a diagnosis? If so, the treatment depends on the diagnosis. It could range anywhere from physical therapy to surgery. This issue is so individualized it is actually counterproductive to get a list of options when many of them may not be appropriate to your situation. No harm in getting additional opinions from docs who actually see you, tho. ...Read more

There are some topical anti inflammatory meds that can be prescribed. Best to see your Foot Specialist. ...Read more
Xray confirms 2 big bone spurs in the rib area. I have been having back rib pain for yrs. A Ct scan was ordered. What might be the treatment for this?
Physical therapy: Your case is complex in that the cause of the spurs and their location is not clear. Intervertebral disc disease can cause muscle imbalance such that your posture and bone alignment changes, When this occurs the bones can respond by laying down more bone (called spurs) to offset your center of gravity. A thorough evaluation by a PMR Doctor might include MRI is appropriate. PT, Pilates may help. ...Read more

More effective treatment plan may be mapped out if the specific pain generators can be identified. In advanced cases w/ stenosis, pt may not be effective & meds can create a viscous cycle. Concurrent consultation and collaboration with a spine surgeon & pain management is advised. ...Read more
Pain and swelling: Associated with a bone spur, or a arthritic joint may feel better with conservative methods such as Pt, ot, nsiads, ice for overuse, warmth for stiffness, splints for excessive force causing pain etc, but of course no one of these methods will alter the bone or joint.
