Clinical Manager David Good attends Steroid Injection therapy course

On the 5th and 6th of July I attended a fantastic course on Steroid Injection Therapy run by Consultant Podiatric Surgeon Ian Reilly at Northampton General Hospital.

The in depth course focused on thorough surface anatomy, injection technique, pharmacology and the “do’s and don’t’s” of injection therapy.

As well as this we reviewed a number of conditions that are suitable for steroid therapy, these include;

Following completion of the 2 day course on the theory of injection therapy an exam had to be taken and fortunately I passed with flying colours.

The next stage is to complete a mentorship with our in house Consultant Podiatric Surgeon Ernest Barlow-Kearsley at Charing Cross Hospital. So following satisfactory assessment and review of outcomes  from Ernest and the course leader Ian I shall be able to offer this service at The Footcare Centre hopefully by the end of the year.

In the meantime if this is something of interest then please do not hesitate to book an appointment with me to assess the suitability of this kind of treatment. To book an appointment please call 01932 849373 or book online.
