: My sister has alot of pain the doctor says she has got a spur in her lower spinal cord what should she do about it she has took medicine and is still on medication but what other health alternatives do you have.
Hi there. How old is she? I am 33 and have almost the same problem. I have osteoarthritis and bone spurs at C5,6, and 7. I have tried the relaxants, anti inflammatories, etc. Please have her see an ortho surgeon. Regular doctors and chiros are no help. This does not get better on its own. I know, been going through it a long time. She could try the epidural but it is not a long lasting effect, only temporary. Surgery is usually a we want to avoid situation with most doctors, or lets see what happens. Don't take a shrug off from them. Maybe PT may work, maybe not. Its a hard one, and I am still trying to figure out what I will do. Goodluck.
