    No. Bone spurs are bony projections that develop along bone edges. Bone spurs (osteophytes) often form where bones meet each other — in your joints. They can also form on the bones of your spine. The main cause of bone spurs is the joint damage associated with osteoarthritis.

    Bone spurs can be seen on MRI or even X-ray.

    But, they beat going AWOL and needing a Pardon to continue in politics. (RE: Clinton).

    Bone spurs (also called osteophytes) are smooth,hard bumps of extra bone that form on the ends of bones. 

    They often pop up in the joints -- the places where two bones meet.

    Bone spurs can form on many parts of your body, including your:

    Hands

    Shoulders

    Neck

    Spine

    Hips

    Knees

    Feet (heels)

    Most bone spurs don't cause problems.

    But if they rub against other bones or press on nerves, you might experience pain and stiffness.
