Without indications, you may accidentally discover a bone spur during an X-ray or other test for a different condition.
In case of pain, stiffness, and loss of motion your healthcare provider will ask about:
2.Your medical history and family’s medical history.
3.Rate your discomfort.
They would perform a physical examination and test your joint’s range of motion and strength. They may also recommend imaging tests, such as X-rays to look for arthritis and spurs or CT scans or MRIs to identify damaged ligaments or tendons.
