Is health coaching the missing piece of your pain care plan?
If you’ve been living with pain for some time, ask yourself these questions:
- Would it be helpful to have regular support and someone to talk to about pain?
- Is it tough to manage living with pain every day?
- Do you feel unsure of what to do next to feel better?
- Is it challenging to make sense of your pain?
- Do you go through long stretches of time between doctor’s visits?
If you answered “yes” to at least 2 of the questions above, you’d likely benefit from working with a health coach. Health coaches support people in living their most meaningful life while overcoming challenges and building healthy habits. People who live with chronic health conditions find health coaching especially beneficial. Receiving support in overcoming the daily challenges of living with chronic pain adds tremendous value and helps people to take key steps towards their goals.

WORKING WITH A HEALTH COACH
Each Health Coach has their own personal style, but you can rest assured that you’ll always be treated with compassion and respect; your experience with pain will be believed and trusted; and you’ll always have the space to share your story and speak your truth. You might even find that after joining Aivo and working with your health coach, you have a new, positive chapter to add to your pain story.
When you work with a health coach, you’re always in the driver’s seat, figuring out the destination, following the route, and making last-second adjustments based on road conditions. Your health coach is your passenger, sitting beside you, helping you navigate, alerting you of potholes or traffic jams along your route, and pumping you up by playing your favorite music. Health coaches use specific techniques to help you figure out the smoothest route to your destination, while giving you tips and feedback along the way.
Aivo’s health coaches have professional training in clinical pain care along with personal experience living with chronic pain themselves. They have “walked through the fire” and know how hot it can get. The combination of personal experience and professional expertise is unique and incredibly helpful for Aivo members. Aivo coaches get what you’re going through and help you to take the next step towards relief. Check out Aimee's story to see how Aivo changed her life.

WHAT DOES THE RESEARCH SAY?
A research study from 2020 looked at the impact health coaching has on individuals living with chronic pain. 181 people completed the study and showed clinically meaningful improvements in both pain intensity and the impact pain has on daily function. The study showed that health coaching helped with both physical and psychological factors to support pain relief.
Simply put, if the impact of health coaching on pain could be bottled up and sold in a pill, there’d be a line outside the pharmacy. And while health coaching doesn’t have the same instant impact that medication has (it takes a few weeks to start noticing the benefits), it can help you to overcome significant challenges, build new habits and routines, and lead a life with less pain.
