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.

Scot Morrison, PT, DPT, CSCS, smartypants:

The management of load represents a key component of what the physiotherapist or athletic trainer does. Once the clinician establishes the need for some form of physiological adaptation, the primary clinical question becomes one of dosage.

This is a dense but excellent and polished article for professionals (for some of the same concepts pitched to patients, see Progressive Training). Nice to see Scot go straight to Dr. Dye’s patellofemoral syndrome research, which has been a major influence for me for a decade.
