"Spurs" is actually a skeleton, which is what we often say about bone hyperplasia. Bone hyperplasia itself is not a disease, just like human aging white hair, is the normal physiological response of bones and joints. As the age increases, the bones and joints will gradually degenerate. When the bones are in contact with the soft tissues, the cartilage between the joints will gradually lose moisture and elasticity due to long-term stress, tension and damage. The bones and bones will wear out. The pressure between the joints, naturally on the edge of the bone joints will accumulate a part to reduce this pressure. It is essentially a compensatory function of the human body, and it is a self-protection reaction produced by the human body for the change of adaptability.
Because the articular cartilage is damaged, after the "bone spur" is long, it can strengthen the bone joints with poor stability, which is beneficial to the stability of the bone joints and avoid further damage; the bone spurs may also cause peripheral nerves, blood vessels, etc. The oppression, the corresponding clinical symptoms appear; so it is physiological, but it may turn into pathological.
Clinical practice has also proved that the body has bone spurs and does not always have clinical symptoms. Moreover, the size and number of bone spurs are not directly proportional to the severity of the patient's symptoms. Therefore, there is no need to doubt whether they have spurs or panic because of bone spurs. Asymptomatic epiphyses are not treated, and the symptoms of osteophytes are mainly conservative and surgical.
Acupuncture, massage, and cupping can relax the muscles and improve the local blood supply, which will make people feel comfortable, but it has no therapeutic effect on the epiphysis itself, and will not let the epiphysis disappear.
Drug treatment is mainly anti-inflammatory and analgesic drugs to relieve symptoms, and can not eliminate osteophytes.
Exercise can not eliminate osteophytes, and imp
