Ostenil Plus Injections / Viscosupplementation Injections
The clinic also offers Ostenil Plus injections for osteoarthritis of the ankle joints and big toes. Ostenil Plus is a natural lubricant and
shock absorber already present in joints. In this case we simply top up the levels. The procedure typically takes about 50 minutes which will also include injecting local anaesthetic.
Ideal for painful heels, interdigital neuritis (Morton’s neuroma),
capsulitis and metatarsalgia (pain in the ball of the foot). Full assessment is required for corticosteroid injections and other treatment options may have to be tried before offering this treatment).
We would like to assure you all injection therapies at The Podiatry Clinic use local anaesthetic and so make the procedures as painless as possible. The strictest standards of hygiene and sterilisation of any instruments are observed. The injection therapies are extremely safe. However, in order to make an informed decision and give your consent, you need to be aware of the possible side-effects and the risk of complications of this procedure.
This is when problems occur during or after the procedure. Most people are not affected. The possible complications of any procedure involving injections include infection, bleeding, bruising or an unexpected reaction to the anaesthetic.
The exact risks are specific to you and differ for every person. Ask your podiatrist to explain how these risks apply to you.
Injection Therapy is available to most patients who have problems with painful knees, ankles, feet and toes, subject to an assessment in order to ensure there are no medical or surgical reasons why such a procedure should not be carried out.
After a number of appointments with my GP in an attempt to treat osteo-arthritis in my knees unsuccessfully, I made an appointment with Graeme Franklin who treated my knees with injections and after the initial discomfort from the needles for about 24 hours,I was completely pain free and have remained so for about 18 months.
