The Impact Of Grief and Loss On Injury Risk & Healing With Dr. Megan Daley
We all experience some degree of loss throughout our lives. Loss can be death of a loved one, loss of an identity, etc... and it impacts our threshold for injury, pain, and overall healing. In this episode Dr. Jocelyn & Dr. Megan talk about how loss and physical healing intersect. About our guest... Dr. Megan grew up as an athlete (and academic), getting injured and being in and out of physical therapy herself. She got her undergrad degree in mathematics in SC, even though she knew she wanted to work in healthcare, and then moved to AZ to get her doctorate in physical therapy. She spent the first several years of practice in corporate healthcare, going to many continuing education weekends and searching for her own mentors. And well, this episode includes why she’ll never work with insurance again and why her focus is on preventative care and connecting physical, mental, and emotional health. She spends her time teaching for the Institute of Clinical Excellence on the weekends (faculty since 2017), treating patients at her own Out Of Network clinic during the week (with a fitness and mindset forward approach), competing in Olympic weightlifting, and hiking/snowboarding/camping as much as possible, preferably with her boyfriend and her corgi.
