Moving Correctly to Avoid Injury


This podcast episode is all about movement. Moving correctly to avoid injury. I am joined by Dr. Paige McClees, founder of PM Method, a physical therapist, and a pilates and barre instructor. We discuss how to deal with pain and injuries, how to promote longevity in movement, and how to be proactive in avoiding injuries. 

Women are starting to be active later in life. There are so many benefits to staying active and mobile. She talks about common injuries in women over 40 and how you can avoid them. We don’t have to accept that injuries will happen just because we’re getting older.

Cortisol shots are a hot topic when it comes to injuries. The shots can help, but Paige acknowledges that this approach does not address the underlying issue. It’s important to understand what’s causing the injury so that you can treat it effectively. We learn about the types of collagen in our bodies, how they are used, and how to influence the way your body distributes this collagen. 

Paige gives us some insight into how a client is treated in her business, starting from the very first meeting. For her, it’s important to take the time to get to know her clients so she can help them get the best results possible. She always put her client’s needs first.

Throughout this episode, Paige reveals useful tips on the types of exercises she recommends the most and how to support healthy movement overall and moving correctly to avoid injury.

And the mainstream wellness advice I was following was not for women my age but for women years younger. I also realized very quickly that there is no one formula that works for all women. We are all different and need a customized approach. This aha moment was the first step to my transformation…
