Hi,
Thank you for posting. Bone spurs usually do not cause signs or symptoms and are often an incidental finding from an x-ray for another condition. They can also be part of the aging process. If they are symptomatic, they can cause pain in the joints or loss of motion in the joints. As mentioned from the other post, cervical bone spurs can protrude inward and may lead to difficulty in swallowing or breathing and even restrict blood flow to the brain. Bone spurs can be managed with medication or surgery. Sometimes, these  can break off from the larger bone and becomes  loose bodies that could lead to joint locking. It is best that you have this checked by your doctor for proper evaluation. The presence of underlying condition such as osteoarthritis should also be managed. Take care and regards.
