‘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!
