Osteophytosis, also known as Bone Spurs, is a condition that involves the development of bony outgrowths on the edges of bones. These outgrowths can occur in any bone, but they are most commonly found in joints, particularly in the spine, knees, hips, and hands.
The development of Bone Spurs is often associated with the natural wear and tear that occurs in the joints over time, particularly in older adults. They can also be caused by injuries, arthritis, or other underlying medical conditions.
The symptoms of Osteophytosis may include:
- Pain and stiffness in the affected joint
- Limited range of motion
- Swelling or tenderness in the affected area
- Numbness or tingling if the bone spur is pressing on a nerve
Diagnosis of Osteophytosis typically involves a physical exam, imaging tests such as X-rays, CT scans, or MRI scans, and nerve function tests to evaluate the extent of nerve damage.
Typical treatment options may include medications for pain and inflammation, physical therapy, corticosteroid injections, and in severe cases, surgical intervention to remove the Bone Spurs.
It is important to note that Osteophytosis is a chronic condition that cannot be cured. However, with proper treatment and management, it can be effectively managed. Symptoms can be reduced, allowing individuals to maintain their quality of life.
Our Approach to Osteophytosis Treatment
The SpineCor Dynamic Bracing System is designed to treat Scoliosis, a condition where the spine curves to the side. The SpineCor Dynamic Bracing System is a non-invasive treatment approach that uses a flexible brace to address the curvature of the spine and improve posture and function.
In many cases, Scoliosis and Bone Spurs may occur together, particularly in older adults. In these cases, treatment may involve a combination of approaches. Some include dynamic bracing, chiropractic care, physical therapy, and medications to manage pain and inflammation.
A significant number of patients with Bone Spurs along with Scoliosis report mild to significant pain reduction when treated with the SpineCor Bracing System.
The primary goal of The SpineCor Dynamic Bracing System is to stop the progression of curvature. It can take the unwanted weight off the joints and structures of the spine which is causing the pain. The second goal is to stabilize and strengthen the spine. And the third goal is to offer any correction if possible. Overall, improves quality of life.
