Weekly nuggets of pain science news and insight, usually 100-300 words, with the occasional longer post. The blog is the “director’s commentary” on the core content of a library of major articles and books about common painful problems and popular treatments. See the blog archives or updates for the whole site.

I’m returning after five weeks away from the blog/newsletter, and mostly away from social media. I was working on many other things, but at a saner pace than usual. I normally put in six days a week, but this August I took two and even three day weekends. Imagine! Paradise!

Some things I am fairly sure I'll be writing about for the rest of the year:

  • lots about back pain, and especially yoga for back pain
  • mindfulness and breathing (now reading the book McMindfulness, which is blowing my mind)
  • how biopsychosocial care is not really working out all that well
  • overzealous patient advocacy
  • does psychosomatic pain actually exist?
  • microscopic skull movements!
  • cryotherapy and the backlash against local icing
  • scary dish scrubbers
  • probably manual lymphatic drainage (finally)

And much, much more, of course. Or different! That’s just a random sampling of highlights from my notes… and I never end up writing quite what I thought I was going to.
