Detailed guides to painful problems, treatments & more

New store

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.

PainScience.com has a new online store! Launched last week, and working quite well so far. Getting this beast up and running has been about 80% of my job for the last two months—lots of programming. And still many loose ends to tie up!

Even so, I’ve managed to keep the content updates coming. That’s always a high priority for me. Still I look forward to returning to “all content, all the time” mode.

There’s not much to see with the new store: customers mostly just have a nicer experience, in many ways. It’s been a staggering amount of work for “nicer” 😉 but there are many under-the-hood benefits for the business too. Like, for instance, my payment processing fees have been cut almost in half. That’s going to pay off steadily!

If you want to get a taste of the nicer, click a buy button, any buy button (several of them here) to see the lovely new checkout panel.
