Episode 222: Do we have any treatments for osteoporotic vertebral fracture pain?

In episode 222, James, Mike and Tina discuss why calcitonin was taken off the market and then what is still available to reduce the pain associated with osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures. At the end we realize we really don’t have a lot and there is no evidence to really guide us so basically all we can do is use analgesics. So, Mike and Tina give James some morphine and they notice absolutely no change at all in his demeanour.

Show notes

 1) Calcitonin withdrawal: Now what for acute vertebral fractures?
