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.

I have recently been diagnosed with a bone spur in my hip. The pain is so intense it radiates down my leg to the bottom of my foot. I have tried steroid injections and got no relief, my doctor is going to put the next one in my sciatic nerve. I cannot get away from the pain and am limited getting around to do almost everything.

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.
