Comment from: bone spur patient, Male (Patient) Published: May 12

Physical therapy is in my experience the last treatment for bone spurs. I had rotator cuff severe pain and went through all of the steps ending with physical therapy that made it worse. I stopped physical therapy, demanded surgery to shave the bone spur and with that simple procedure ended the pain, suffering and waste of money. I was told by the surgeon that it was a good thing I stopped physical therapy for it was cutting the muscle/sheath across the rotator cuff. Physical therapy for bone spurs is good after the surgery, not before.

One hip (dysplastic) was replaced in 2009 with great success. The other hip has a bone spur that is now troublesome. I'm concerned a minimally invasive technique will not work and the second hip will also have to be replaced.
