Hi. There is no specific treatment for such condition. If you feel pain, you may be prescribed with NSAIDs to relieve the pain. Bone spurs can break off and prevent you from moving the joints for a while – these loose bodies come and go in the way of your joints. Bone spurs removal is possible. They are often removed as a part of surgery for arthritis. Bone spurs can also be removed in an open procedure. Removal of bone spurs may be done arthroscopically. This means your surgeon will make small incisions to insert surgical tools and tiny camera inside your joint.
