Bones Spurs- Nature’s Way To “Save” Your Spine

0

Bone_SpursSpinal Bone Spurs (Osteophytes)

What?
Calcification or new bone formation.

Where?
In osteoarthritic spinal joints.

Why?
A result of damage and wear from inflammation and mechanical damage in joints (esp. the discs and soft tissues).

How?
The natural response of the body to save the joints:
When there’s spinal misalignments or damage to the discs and soft/supporting tissues between the spinal bones, the spinal bones begin to grow osteophytes which limit joint movement, so that further spinal misalignment or wear and tear of the discs/soft tissues are limited.

Red Alert!
With time (if left uncorrected), the spinal joints will stiffen and eventually fuse.
Nerve openings in the spinal joints will narrow and put pressure on the nerves in the openings.
Adjacent spinal joints will wear out prematurely under the extra duress.
This will lead to bigger health/physical issues if left unchecked or untreated.

Problems and Pain…
Spurs and joint fusion are not the source of back pain (which may typically cause pain or no pain at all); but instead are the common symptom of a deeper problem.
However, when bone spurs on the spine impinge on nerves that branch out from the spine to other parts of the body, it can cause pain in upper and lower back; and numbness or tingling in the limbs.
It may even result to other health issues like headaches, low immunity, irreversible spinal distortions, fatigue…

Advice:
Get your spine aligned with Chiropractic adjustments.
Keep your spinal joints mobile and healthy with stretches, workouts, massages to surrounding tissues and adopt proper posture in all you do.
