VA new study for chronic pain

Rate this question



I don't know why I get call for VA studies for pain help but always get ask

to participate in them. Telephone Coaching Program. You get paid for completing

3 surveys over 6 months. Its for hip, knee, and back pain. They will have someone for your

coach to help you walk and move more and how to pace yourself. The main thing I see is you 

have to get out and walk. Move more easily,reduce your pain, feel more energetic, improve your mood,

and finally gain muscle strength. So I guess I will try it out. Forgot they will give you a pedometer to track your steps.

All through telephone calls. I know walking helps with pain that's how I make it through the pain walking or doing something

helps. Its in the works in Atlanta. Anyone else receive this yet?

Sounds promising. Have not received any info about it yet. It could be a local study though.

I don't know if they will give you the same pedometer that the physical therapy department gave me, but they kept failing. I just bought myself a FitBit wristband and had no problems yet.

Sounds a lot like the VA  M.O.V.E. Program   which I did for 17 weeks in a row every Thursday at 1:00pm They have it on Tuesdays at 8:00 am but I sleep in ...up at 4 L00am read hadit and then go back to bed around 7:00am  its just my schedule  lol

I did lose on MOVE but got off the wagon  they teach you how to eat and what foods are best for you and exercice to try..I walked off my pounds and started eating better...during the program  but you have to stay with it.

This program the letter come from Minneapolis VA Health care it all

about living with pain and dealing with it and live a good life with it. 

By now you know pain will be there always if chronic why worry about it?

They think I could be a coach on the team so I will give it a try. They need 500

people in ATL AREA..# 877-467-5079 GIVE THEM A CALL if you want help if not

don't bother with it.
