bone spurs

Posted by johnv on 10/30/00 at 13:00 (031638)

Maybe someone can answer this question: why are some people apparently susceptilble to the growth of bone spurs? I have bone spur growths on the front of both heels and one on the back of my left heel. Recently, after seeking treatment for tendonitis, an x-ray showed some bone spurs growing in the ankle/ top of foot area. Weird, looked like something out of the Alien. Anybody know what the story is with these things?

After a tendon has been injured and is trying to heal, certain piesoelectric charges are set up that causes calcium to be deposited durring the healing. After a period of time you end up with a spur. Dr. B.
