Weekly nuggets of pain science news and insight, usually 100-300 words, with the occasional longer post.

See the blog archives or updates for the whole site.

The Facepalm o’ the Day (or week, or month): a health gadget to enhance balance and strength, allegedly powered by quantum entanglement, championed by chiropractors, demonstrated on Dragon’s Den using “applied kinesiology” (which is one of the most absurd and obnoxiously deceptive forms of quackery in all of alternative medicine, in the same league as ear candling, reflexology, and palm reading).

See “This is snake oil”: Scientists don’t buy balance-boosting clips featured on Dragons’ Den.
