Talar Osteophytes

Osteophytes (bone spurs) are small bony outgrowths that develop along joint lines in response to repetitive microtrauma. Osteophytes that develop on the talus (foot bone) typically occur either anteriorly (front) or posteriorly (back). Anterior talar osteophytes cause pain on forced dorsiflexion (lifting the toes upwards) and may also be associated with numbness, tingling or weakness into the toes, while posterior osteophytes typically cause pain on forced plantar flexion (pointing the toes downwards).
