I am a science writer in Vancouver, Canada, and a chronic pain patient myself since 2015. I am not a medical expert, but I am an expert “translator.” It’s my job to explain and cite expert opinion and solid science. I was a Registered Massage Therapist for a decade and worked with many patients with chronic pain, but I left that profession because it was too polluted with pseudoscience for my tastes. For several years after that I was the assistant editor of ScienceBasedMedicine.org, working closely with their world class team of physicians, while building PainScience.com up to be a sister site. My goal is to make PainScience.com a credible source in an era of rampant medical misinformation, despite my own unimpressive credentials.
