Subtalar Joint Arthritis: Possible Use of Synthetic Cartilage Injections

 To my knowledge, the use of synthetic cartilage injections, are 50% successful in preventing/delaying knee replacement surgery, but has not been FDA approved for the foot or ankle or hip. I know this is coming down the pike, and this article shows the foot is getting some good research in this field. 


I was wondering if you do any hyaleronic acid injections for foot joint OA pain.  Here's a link to a very interesting story:  http://www.news-medical.net/news/20130131/Viscosupplementation-may-relieve-subtalar-osteoarthritis.aspx
