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.

Dr. James Noake again, with another kind of controversial opinion:

Can we stop with this now? I’m tired of unravelling this BS in clinic, especially on friday afternoon.

“Can we stop with this now” … been asking myself since the early 2000s, so I guess the answer is “nope.” This kind of nonsense — from chiropractic or any other profession — isn’t going anywhere soon, no matter how many smart people gripe about it.
