What is the remedy of osteophyte ?

My daughter is a left handed fastpitch softball pitcher, age 14. She got an MRI for shoulder pain and was diagnosed with a piece of bone growing in her muscle and tendon of her supraspinatus. It s called an osteophyte as u know. What can be done in order not to tear the muscle? or other problems

Hi
I may suggest local infiltration of injection depomedrol..if supraspinatus tendonitLis is unchecked by this, then the calcified part may be excised and repair of tendon undertaken..as of now she may stop pitching and support arm in broad sling and take advil tabs twice a day.
Consult shoulder surgeon
