There are some conditions that must typically be coped with rather than eliminated. One such condition is bone spurs. Keep reading to learn about the treatment options that are available for bone spurs.
Bone spurs are calcium growths in the feet that can be surgically removed. However, most people alleviate their symptoms in other ways. If you have a bone spur in your foot, try not to put pressure on it when you do not need to; the weight of your body contributes to the most significant amount of pain. You can also treat the affected area with an ice pack and pad your footwear with comfortable foam. In severe cases, a walking cast may be used.
