Detailed guides to painful problems, treatments & more

1000 Updates

 •  • by Paul Ingraham

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.

In 2016 I started systematically logging all updates to this website, large and small, flattering or embarrassing — anything that would be of any interest to a keen reader. The total number of logged updates just hit 1000. Like most arbitrary milestones, it’s kind of silly to celebrate it. Despite the policy, there are still plenty of minor unlogged updates, and many significant updates in past years were never logged, so the real total is probably something like 10,000.

But still: 1000 logged updates! It feels like a good threshold to reach early in 2017.

You can always find summaries to the most recent 50 updates on the What’s New on page, and here’s the last few (including a whole new article):
