Medically accurate muscle chart 

Paul Ingraham ARCHIVEDMicroblog posts are archived and rarely updated. In contrast, most long-form articles on PainScience.com are updated regularly over the years.

Going to have to produce my own version of this. This one is by “unmutedlark” on Tumblr.

Remember, although the nature of sore spots in muscle is still amazingly unclear, muscle tissue is definitely sensitive (see Graven-Nielsen et al), and can be a potent source of nociceptive pain (pain originating from noxious stimuli). A few internal tissues are insensate (cartilage, lung, brain), but not muscle tissue.

This is the MICROBLOG: small posts about interesting stuff that comes up while I’m updating & upgrading dozens of featured articles on PainScience.com. Follow along on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS. Sorry, no email subscription option at this time, but it’s in the works.
