• Good advice for aches, pains & injuries


Paul Ingraham ARCHIVEDMicroblog posts are archived and rarely updated. In contrast, most long-form articles on are updated regularly over the years (see updates page). is a nicely done directory of reading recommendations and references for a couple dozen topics in alternative medicine. It’s surprisingly hard to find good reading lists … but not on EBM-First. The most relevant topics for pain and manual therapy are craniosacral therapy, energy therapies and reiki, homeopathy, magnetic therapy, reflexology, therapeutic “touch.”

As you can see, there’s a strong focus on alternative medicine’s goofier side: several topics I’ve barely touched on myself, because they’re just too remote from science and reason. For instance, I will probably never bother to write about magnets. I’m happy to be able to direct readers to EBM-First for that.
