Do you manage patients with knee pain? Might it be osteoarthritis? This week’s podcast is for you.

Dr. Dan Rhon (T: @danrhon) PT, PhD is a researcher with the US Department of Defence, a consultant and Assistant Professor at both Duke (North Carolina) and Baylor (Texas) Universities. He attended a manual therapy clinical fellowship at Brooke Army Medical Center in Texas, is a fellow in the American Academy of Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapists (AAOMPT), and an orthopaedic clinical specialist (OCS). His passion for research is in clinical care pathways for musculoskeletal disease. Dr Rhon recently published a study on the effects of corticosteroid vs physiotherapy for managing knee osteoarthritis, published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Here’s the link to the NEJM paper. https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMoa1905877

In this discussion with associate editor and PT Paul Blazey (T: @blazey85), Dr Rhon shares his deep knowledge of the evidence for us to better manage a very prevalent MSK condition.
