bone spurts

Read about a treatment for bone spurs on another message board I participate in for court reporters and thought others might be interested.

The person was diagnosed with bone spurs of the heels and told she needed surgery promptly. She wanted to wait for a window of time when she could be off her feet - although during the interim at times she found it difficult to tolerate the pain. She used the time to research everything she could and decided it might be treatable without surgery. She eventually went to an acupunturist who suggested a small cushion in shoes. While she still has some discomfort, she can enjoy life and is happy she avoided surgery.

I like 'bone spurts' better! It sounds much kinder and more fun than 'bone spurs' which has a wicked mean sound to it! (in the Boston sense of 'wicked mean...')
