Thanks for posting on HCM
Bone spurs are very common especially in people with osteroarthritis.The treatment of this condition may only be required if painful.I will suggest you try the following:
-Take a pain drug like aceclofenac
-If pain too intense and limiting the extent to which you can use your foot, i advise you see the orthopedist for evaluation.In this case, a surgical intervention may be considered.
Hope this will help
Best regards
