Bone spurs (osteophytes) are extra bony bumps in the place where bones meet, such as the joints. Usually, doctors recommend over-the-counter pain relievers
to help ease the pain caused by bone spurs.
The common pain relievers include:
- Acetaminophen (Tylenol, and others)
- Ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, and others)
- Naproxen sodium (Aleve, and others)
