Pain is described as the hidden epidemic, the gift that no one wants, and yet one in five Australians experience chronic pain and this rises to one in three for over 65s.

That means that you or someone you know almost certainly lives with the effects of pain that won't go away. The Pain Book is a definitive response to this huge but often unseen need.

It helps people face pain by using plain language to explain the source and types of pain, how the body and mind respond and the kinds of treatments available.

It also helps people find hope by giving practical physical, psychological and spiritual steps to managing and reducing pain complete with illustrations, techniques and exercises.
