BONE SPUR

Another malady has visited my left knee visiting friends Arthritis and Torn Meniscus! His name is Bone Spur! When I kneeled the discomfort on my left knee was more then usual so I made an appointment for an X-Ray and even an untrained eye such as mine could easily spot the spur. A bone spur or osteophyte is basically an outgrowth of bone caused by stress or rubbing! Bone spurs also are a part of the aging process! My bone spur apparently was caused by my arthritis in my knee! At the moment my treatment consists of stretching, pain relievers, and possible injections of natural lubricants! Surgery to remove the spur will be an option and a total knee replacement to correct all of my knee issues may be in the distant future!
