It was some kind of kismet, for sure, because everything I read made total, absolute sense. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You have given me the courage and resolve to sit out this sprain so I can get back up again intact, and stay that way. Your writings about joint mobilization also make me realize I have some tactics to improve my current state now, even though I am recovering. A huge lightbulb has gone off for me. Thank you, again!
Best advice ever. Thanks again for putting together all the back pain research — a good percentage of it anyway — into an easy-to-read publication. Thank you immensely for the best, most sensible and credible information on back pain. Credible, reassuring, and humorous too. I purchased the low back tutorial recently and got the free trigger points one also. Many thanks. They are great!
I had already accessed the perfect spot series and have been working on my trigger points. It is very pleasing to have the full discussion of the physiology , and I now have a much better idea about the whole ghastly business. Your presentation is excellent. I spent seven hours straight sitting at my computer and my back didn't hurt at all! Thanks so much. I had suffered from undiagnosed and seemingly untreatable low back pain since late August last year. Three physiotherapists, my GP, two RMTs, and my generally excellent personal trainer failed to help me make any progress.
At my last visit to my GP in late December, he maintained his insistence that I just needed to loosen up my hamstrings! The systematic approach you took to reviewing all the supposed cures and providing a clear analysis of each and no doubt saved me thousands of dollars and months of frustration.
That gave me the focus to work on trigger points known to cause LBP with the help of some additional books and a great TP therapy app for my phone. I teach a course, Medicine in Society , at St. Leonards Hospital in Hoxton. I originally stumbled across your website whilst looking for information about pain for my medical students, and have recommended your tutorials to them.
Your work deserves special mention for its transparency, evidence base, clear presentation, educational content, regular documented updates, and lack of any commercial promotional material.
Oh, I get those too! I do not host public comments on PainScience. I have made many important changes to this tutorial inspired directly by critical, informed reader feedback. Some people demand their money back and get it. The complaints of my most disatisfied customers have strong themes:. Thanks to every reader, client, and book customer for your curiosity, your faith, and your feedback and suggestions, and your stories most of all — without you, all of this would be impossible and pointless. Writers go on and on about how grateful they are for the support they had while writing one measly book , but this website is actually a much bigger project than a book.
Thanks to my wife for countless indulgences large and small; to my parents for possibly blind faith in me, and much copyediting; and to friends and technical mentors Mike, Dirk, Aaron, and Erin for endless useful chats, repeatedly saving my ass, plus actually building many of the nifty features of this website.

The first edition was originally published in September , after countless hours of research and writing while I spent a month taking care of a farm and a beautiful pair of young puppies in the Okanagan.
