Treatment Options for a Bone Spur in the Wrist

wrist_pain.jpgThe optimal treatment for a bone spur in the wrist begins physical therapy. Physical therapy helps to relieve pain and reduce inflammation caused by bone spurs in the wrist. Physical therapy does not remove bone spurs from the wrists, but is exceptional in helping with alleviating the symptoms they cause. Physical therapy strengthens the wrist’s surrounding muscles and increases the motion of its joints.

Common Causes of Bone Spur in the Wrist

A bone spur is an outgrowth of bone that can occur along the edges of a bone. It is also called an osteophyte. Bone spurs can form in any bone, but are most commonly found in joints such as the wrist, where two or more bones come together. Bone spurs also occur where muscles, ligaments, or tendons attach to the bone.
