Spinal Bone Spurs

An unintended bony over growth causing some unwanted consequences is called bone spurs. This process is usually considered as a  healing process by the human body. Not all spinal bone spurs are symptomatic. They usually become problematic when they come in contact with neural structures, spinal cord or spinal nerves.

How Do I Know if I have Spinal Bone Spurs

Spinal bone spur symptoms include pain that radiates along the nerve path into the arms or legs. Numbness, tingling, and a pins and needles sensation are also common spinal bone spur symptoms. The longer the condition progresses the more compression the spur will place on surrounding nerves which may lead to muscular weakness, and loss of motor function.
