The name alone used to scare me, let alone applying it in practice. As someone who struggled with the study of the "sciences" in massage college, every time I heard the term "pain science" I would shudder a little.
Each time I would see posts on Facebook or see the activity in Facebook groups, it seemed more like an argument than a learning opportunity, which only made me shy away from the topic more. Most of the time it just made me feel stupid when I looked at it.
My frustration with the topic grew to the point that I started to shut out reading or even looking at anything to do with it. However, it still seemed like an important topic that was gaining more and more relevance.
