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 PainScience.com: 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’ve written 424 blog posts (roughly 175,000 words) since I started “blogging the process” about two years ago — that is, as I go through the process of creating very detailed articles and tutorials, I share bits and pieces of what I’m working on as I go, using a blog format. So my blog posts are all in some sense excerpts or rough drafts of larger projects. I estimate that I actually wrote more than double that much, but only blogged about 175,000 words.
