Episode 310: Back pain – taking a stab at the evidence – PART II
In episode 310, Mike and James continue looking at the evidence around back pain and focus on imaging. Unnecessary early imaging not only does nothing but makes things worse. Explaining things to patients seems to be as successful as imaging. When it comes to appropriate imaging red flags are key. At the end of the podcast Mike and James end up waving a white flag in frustration with the evidence.
