‘Rethinking Pain – How to live well with chronic pain’ is a pain management book written by Dr. Helena Miranda, chair of the Societal Impact of Pain working group within the EFIC Finnish Chapter, the Finnish Pain Society.

A pain physician and a chronic pain patient herself, Dr Miranda shows with this book an approach to living well with chronic pain based on the fundamental principles that:

  • all pain experienced is real
  • wherever the trouble originates in the body, pain is experienced in the brain
  • all pain is unique to the individual sufferer
  • the key to overcoming pain is not to strive to be pain-free but to minimise the suffering related to it.

After widespread resonance in Finland, the book was translated in several languages including English!
