welcome to the health care magic forum,
In this condition you have an best alternative in the form of homeopathy ,it will take care of the developing osteophytes and will check the calcium deprivation also.
take her to some good homeopath.
Thanks for query,
As osteophytes are bony projectinos from vertebrae due to degenerative changes in the vertebrae,
Nerves coming from canal get stretched or injured by the osteophytes passing through it and gives pain.
There is no option other than surgery and if pain is very severe you have to go for surgery.
ok and heave good health.
