... spurs. I'm ready to try a anything
A corticosteroid shot (e.g. Prednisone) may be given for pain caused by stenosis.
For bone degeneration (aka osteoarthritis), this is a result of the wear and tear to the body over time and isn't reversible though physical therapy and self-education can help you better manage the pain and more importantly prevent further degeneration.
Bone spurs also do well with various types of physical therapy (water therapy can be very nice and easy on the body, especially good since you have bone degeneration too), some oral medications like NSAIDs or surgery which is the most effective and with generally good outcome for patients.
With so many pain sources, finding a daily stretching routine is highly advisable. A physical therapist is your best bet, but also know that after only a few visits you should feel some improvement, otherwise you should look for a different physical therapist. Not to say one isn't good at their job, but there are so many modalities sometimes you just need to take the time to find the right fit.
Best wishes on your pain riddance!
