Excellent Care, Friendly Staff & Best Treatment Plans

Expert Care for Bone Spurs at Central Florida Foot & Ankle Institute

Bone spurs, also known as osteophytes, are bony projections that develop along the edges of bones in your feet and ankles. At Central Florida Foot & Ankle Institute, we specialize in treating bone spurs, providing personalized care to reduce discomfort and improve your mobility.

Understanding Bone Spurs

Bone spurs can develop due to joint damage associated with osteoarthritis, tendonitis, or prolonged stress on the feet. While they may not always cause symptoms, bone spurs can lead to pain, swelling, and difficulty moving when they rub against other bones or soft tissues.

Common Symptoms of Bone Spurs

  • Sharp or stabbing pain, especially when standing or walking
  • Swelling and inflammation around the affected joint
  • Restricted movement in the foot or ankle
  • Corns or calluses where a bone spur rubs against shoes

Our Approach to Bone Spur Treatment

Our treatment plans focus on relieving your symptoms and addressing the underlying causes:

  • Conservative Treatments: Such as custom orthotics, physical therapy, and pain relief medications.
  • Activity Modification Advice: Guidance on how to reduce stress on your feet and ankles.
  • Injection Therapy: Corticosteroid injections to reduce pain and inflammation.
  • Surgical Options: If conservative treatments are ineffective, surgery may be considered to remove the bone spur and relieve pressure on surrounding tissues.
