Using injection therapy to manage a variety of orthopedic disorders is frequently carried out. There is however plenty of discussion concerning when is the optimum time to apply it. One example is, should injections be used early in the acute phase or down the line in the event the problem is more long-term. An episode of the live talk show for Podiatrists named PodChatLive was devoted to this exact subject along with the concerns that surrounded the use of injections for musculoskeletal conditions generally and in the feet in particular. PodChatLive is a live show which goes out on Facebook so the 2 hosts as well as their guest may respond to queries. Following the live show, the recording is then submitted to YouTube and the podcast edition is produced and is offered as a Podcast. It's free and greatly followed by podiatrists.
During the episode on bone and joint injections the hosts chatted with the Consultant Podiatric Surgeon, Ian Reilly. Ian and the hosts discussed that the evidence foundation intended for injection therapy may not be being what it could be, and the underpinnings of this absence of evidence and clinical studies. He was also refreshingly sincere regarding how he uses this in his podiatry practice in the framework of a multidimensional approach to orthopedic pathology. Ian furthermore discussed the top 3 problems that he injects on a regular basis, as well as the commonest problems he runs into when performing that. Ian Reilly graduated as a Podiatric Surgeon in 1996 and has completed over 11,000 surgical procedures and over 6000 foot and ankle injections.
