Pain Management Coaching Program for VIP

Override's coaching program

You may have tried every pain treatment under the sun and found that nothing works for you. The resulting hopelessness and frustration – with your doctor and perhaps with yourself – is all too common.

Our chronic pain management coaching program offers a bridge to help you overcome the challenges of chronic pain. Our coaches are specially trained in pain neuroscience and have experience helping even the most stuck individuals who have been in pain for years and years. We help you uncover your inner strengths, abilities, and values to change your experience with pain and uncover your potential to live a fuller life.  

In the Override coaching program, you will learn how functional, behavioral, and lifestyle choices affect pain.  And you will learn techniques and inner skills that gradually transform you from a passive patient, who is dependent on others, into a self-manager of your own health.

"Chronic pain is one of the most unrecognized and under-resourced medical conditions impacting our veterans. VIP is the only organization of which I am aware that is focusing on the problem.

Our company, Override, is also committed to the issue with our successful, evidence-based chronic pain management coaching protocol. Override is proud to partner with
Veterans in Pain VIP to help veterans find much-needed support and healthcare."

David Shulkin, Override Co-founder

How it works

Delivery of our evidence-based program is entirely telephonic, making it available to you from the comfort of home.

  • 30-minute individual coaching sessions with a designated coach to enable support and accountability, set and adjust goals, encourage lifestyle changes, and promote ongoing earning.

  • Weekly 1-hour group coaching sessions in a group that supports, understands and encourages you as you work to integrate new tools and skills into day-to-day life.

  • Our pain neuroscience curriculum teaches you about pain & the brain, as well as approaches you can use to calm the central nervous system and reduce systems.


I had a lot of pain and just ached all over. I didn’t get out of bed.

I had given up on everything. I just wanted to die . . . . It wasn’t long after I started talking to my coach that everything changed—my life did a 180 turn.

People started not showing up for group from time to time, but it wasn’t because they had given up; it was because they were out living; they were with friends and family enjoying life . . .

I’m still in pain everyday, but I’ve got my self-value back, and I've learned that the pain doesn’t have to take away my life.
