Session 42 – ‘I Don’t Like Taking Pain Killers’ with Dave Baker and ACPOM-IT

We’re delighted to have teamed up with ACPOM-IT to bring you a few specialist podcasts in the coming months. ACPOM-IT are the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Orthopaedic Medicine and Injection Therapy (Yep. It’s a mouthful…)

This episode is a monster in more ways than just duration! Jack chats for the best part of two hours with Dave Baker, a leading UK Physio specialising in pharmacology and advanced practice. The conversation covers the mechanisms of action, indications for use and risks of all major drug groups such as paracetamol, NSAIDs, Pregabalin and more!

Jack confronts Dave with what he feels are the three common barriers that patients put forward: ‘I don’t want to mask the pain’, ‘Aren’t these addictive’ and ‘But the side effects’. Dave’s answers are bound to save you bags of time in clinic and help you to reassure patients like never before!

Head to Patreon for extra time where Jack and Dave delve into neuropathic meds and conspiracy theories!
