Bone spurs, is there a way to get rid of them?

Posted by deborahfrick123 @deborahfrick123, Sep 8 4:37am

I have several bone spurs in my knees. Is there anyway to dissolve them with some sort of home remedy? I have been rubbing castor oil on my knees. Also, I bought a table top water pitcher with a filter to remove fluoride as I heard fluoride causes bone spurs. Any ideas or suggestions.

@deborahfrick123 Sorry to hear about your bone spurs I have some in my hip as far as I know surgery is the only way to remove them Wish I could help but that's all I know about

@deborahfrick123 Bone spurs form because of uneven pressure as the body's way to try to stabilize something. The first thing to do is to figure out why you got them in the first place. Where is the body out of alignment and where and why is extra pressure being created? A physical therapist can help assess what is happening. If you walk while out of alignment of your pelvis, back, ankles, and knees, you can cause uneven wear and tear on your knees, and you may need a knee replacement in the future. You may also want to consult at PT who also knows myofascial release because overly tight fascial tissue puts LOTS of pressure on the body. If you can correct the misalignment, you can prevent this problem. You can also consult other specialties for example a podiatrist if it is heel spurs, and custom orthotics can help maintain the feet in proper alignment. Foot alignment is usually a first step when there is knee pain. Here is our discussion on Myofacial release. There is a provider finder on the MFR website.

Wonderful advice Jennifer. I am seeing a PT who has helped with the elbow pain from arthritic bone spurs but if I ignore posture or skip stretching the pain is back.
