Episode 449: Osteoarthritis – all the evidence for all the treatments

In episode 449, Mike and James invite Danielle Perry and Joey Ton to go over our osteoarthritis systematic review. We talk about all the evidence around exercise, steroid injections, SNRIs, oral NSAIDs, glucosamine, topical NSAIDs, chondroitin, viscosupplementation, oral opioids, acetaminophen. In fact, the magnitude of benefit is exactly in this order – exercise highest, acetaminophen lowest.
