“A bone spur on its own does not cause pain,” said R. Brent Harbin, DPM, a podiatrist with Tennova Foot and Ankle. “However, depending on the size and location of the spur, it can interact with nearby structures like tendons, nerves, or other bones, which can result in acute pain and loss of motion.”

According to Dr. Harbin, joint damage from osteoarthritis is one of the most common causes of bone spurs. “As arthritis breaks down the cartilage cushioning the edges of your bones, your body attempts to repair the loss by growing bone spurs in the damaged area. Other potential causes and risk factors include overuse of a joint, obesity, genetic bone problems, conditions like gout or lupus, and spinal stenosis,” he said.
