How can osteoarthritis along with bone spurs be treated?

My Clavicle bone has shifted and the right side is now sticking out a lot more than the left side. I do have dull pain associated with it. I had an X-ray and the ER doctor said he did not see a tumor or anything that concerned him. I do have Osteoarthritis in my neck, three bulging discs in my neck and bone spurs. I would like to see a specialist for this, but am not sure what type of doctor to see. Can you help me with this and offer any medical advice on these symptoms? Thanks!

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

If there is swelling in the neck especially, since you say its bone related, then you need to see an orthopedic doctor.

They will check your bones and since you say you have some bulged disks and bone spur also so they will evaluate and if it is malignant or find any condition then they will evaluate you after a complete examination.

With just online consultation, it is very difficult to sort all your problems. But, if you go to an orthopedic doctor, they will sort your problems out.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
