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.

Remember, although the nature of sore spots in muscle is still amazingly unclear, muscle tissue is definitely sensitive (see Graven-Nielsen et al), and can be a potent source of nociceptive pain (pain originating from noxious stimuli). A few internal tissues are insensate (cartilage, lung, brain), but not muscle tissue.
