Does anyone have any experience or knowledge about bone spurs in the back? Mom's been having so much pain lately. It's hard for her to walk. She's been actually using a walker and a cane lately. She's been having pain due to flat feet and a knee that is scheduled to be replaced this winter. She also has some arthritis in her back. But this debilitating pain that has made it difficult for to even walk came on so suddenly. She's seen her MD for cortisone injections but got no relief. She's been doing massage therapy and seeing a chiropractor too. Finally yesterday the chiro. took an x-ray and she's got a bunch of bone spurs in her spine. So he sent her back to the Orthopedic Surgeon. Seems to me I remember hearing someone once say if you need to have any type of surgery on spine or neck, to always see a neurosurgeon instead of an orthopedic surgeon. Any info or insight would be appreciated. There is tons of info on the web but I always prefer to get advice from those who have experience.
