In episode 370, Mike and James decide to follow their New Year’s resolution by trying to present some new studies in a useful and thoughtful way – in other words, a PREMIUM podcast. We talk about a trial of pregabalin for sciata, a trial of intra-articular steroid injections for knee pain, romosozumab/alendronate for fractures and antibiotics for small abscesses.
