Got pain? Check Pain Science.com — it’s a great place to learn. The information is fairly reported, easy to read and updated regularly.
Paul Ingraham, the publisher of the website, Pain Science.com, writes (and I have extracted all this from his website…),
The science of aches, pains, and injuries is surprisingly weird, controversial, and interesting. My job is to wrap my head around that science and translate it for both patients and pros. I try to make it friendlier than the institutional health care sites, but more scholarly and detailed than most health blogs. This is a full-time job, paid for with book sales, memberships, and donations, and not advertising.
PainScience.com is …
- 230 featured articles about common pain problems, how pain works, and reviews of treatments and therapies. Many of these are “best of breed” articles that I’ve been updating constantly for many years.
- 10 book-length tutorials about some of the most maddeningly stubborn pain problems and injuries (like neck pain or iliotibial band syndrome). I sell these to fund the site without ads.
- 1068 smaller blog/newsletter posts about interesting, useful, and odd stuff I come across while I am updating the big articles.
- 3000+ scientific paper citations in a curated bibliography, about 600 of them described more thoroughly.
