I was diagnosed with bone spurs earlier this year and I just found out this morning my friend was diagnosed with them last week. However, our doctors are giving us two different treatment options. Mine told me laser removal would help whereas hers says they may have to burn the nerve root. I've been treating mine with massage therapy, heat when needed and muscle relaxers. She just found out about hers, had 2 steroid shots in the next which didn't work and is scared to death so I'm trying to relieve her and find out the success rate of the laser surgery. Does anyone have any info on this or know where I can find it? I gave her the @ to my dr but want to give her some info ASAP.
