Episode 114: Topical information on topical NSAIDs
In episode 114, James and Mike finally bring some topical information to the TEC podcast listeners by reviewing the available evidence for topical NSAIDs. We find out that they do work and that they should be considered a useful tool in your “how should I treat pain” armamentarium. Mike and James at the end of the podcast make a resolution to send all our PREMIUM podcast subscribers – if you aren’t one yet get on with it – a vat of a generic topical NSAID to help them with the intermittent pain associated with listening to the podcasts.
