Question: What causes knots on finger joints?

Damage from wear and tear and friction can cause bony overgrowths, known as osteophytes (aka bone spurs), to form along the margins of the joint. In the finger joints, these bone growths may form visible bumps, which are the Heberdens or Bouchards nodes.

How do you get rid of nodules on your finger joints?

Treatment. You can treat pain and swelling with rest, splints, ice, physical therapy, and pain medicines like nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). In rare cases, your doctor might suggest surgery to remove the nodes, or replace or fuse one of the joints in your fingers.
