Note: rehabilitating an injury is actually quite different from dealing with pain. Check out the injury section to find out more about rehabilitation. Also, check out the disclaimer.


Despite it’s importance, pain is not well understood, even by health professionals! Thankfully, over the last few decades research in neuroscience has revealed a lot about the science of pain. I think neuroscience is super awesome, so I tend to keep up with this research. I hope the articles on this site are helpful to you.

Thanks for reading, and good luck!
