Bone spurs are bony projections that develop along bone edges. Also referred to as osteophytes, they often form where bones meet each other — in your joints. They can also form on the bones of your spine.

The main cause is the joint damage associated with osteoarthritis. Most bone spurs do not cause symptoms and can go undetected for years. They might not require treatment, but if treatment is needed, it depends on where spurs are located and how they affect your health.

Because most bone spurs do not cause any signs or symptoms, you might not realize you have an issue until an X-ray for another condition reveals the growths. In some cases, though, bone spurs can cause pain and loss of motion in your joints.
