Seven popular articles in audio, about stretching, posture, Epsom salts, structuralism, and trigger points

These seven PainSci articles are available in audio format for members and e-boxed set customers, or on request for visually impaired visitors (email me). (There’s also a growing library of audio versions of shorter blog posts.) Members can download the big audio versions from this page. Already a member? To unlock the downloads just login.

There’s a theme! Five of these are about a popular but all-too questionable idea: the value of stretching, the importance of posture, the power of Epsom salts, the nature of “trigger points,” and the clinical relevance of biomechanical factors (the deepest one, intended mostly for professionals, but not entirely). Each article is a reader favourite or a personal pick. It’s basically the Greatest Hits from the last decade of constantly fine-tuning my writing about controversial and complex subject matter.

The articles are all read by me, professionally produced (by Vancouver film-maker and creative-polymath Kennedy Goodkey), and embellished with some original music (by Vancouver composer Phil Mahoney). I used to be a theatre and radio guy, so these recordings were a hoot for me to make, and they don’t suck. I will probably do more, and some will be updated (especially the trigger point doubts project, which is on-going and has already been updated once).

Many audio versions of blog posts

I also started recording audio versions of some blog posts for members in early 2022. These are much shorter than the featured articles listed above, but they will soon also greatly outnumber the audio versions of the featured articles. A year later, there are now 27 of those, and I’m continuing to add more. Audio versions are clearly marked by 🔈 in the blog index. Those audio versions are not downloadable, but use a player embedded in the post, visible to logged-in members.

Two audio books too

I have audio versions of two of my books as well: plantar fasciitis and IT band syndrome. Those are available to anyone who purchases those individual tutorials (or the boxed set, of course).
