Bone Spurs of the Spine
ear and tear on the joints cause cartilage, between the bones, to erode away. This allows the bones to rub directly against each other causing friction, which then leads to inflammation and irritation within the bones. When this occurs it creates bone spicules known as spurs (osteophytes). Bone spurs cause pain if they come in contact with surrounding spinal nerves, joints, or ligaments from the action of digging into discs and cartilage. This condition can also pinch nearby nerves likely causing radiculopathy or sciatica.
