Megan Giglia's journey in elite sport began in the most traumatic way possible - when she walked into hospital with a headache like she'd never experienced before.

What happened next changed her life and started her on a remarkable journey that turned her into an international cycling star - a world champion and world record-holder who won Britain's first gold medal at the Paralympics in Rio in 2016.

We've not had a story like Megan's on the podcast before - and we think you'll find it every bit as fascinating and inspiring as we did. From physical health to mental health; from being an LGBT role model to video-gaming, we cover absolutely everything - and honestly, it was a real privilege to finally get to speak with Megan.

As part of the recent Physiopedia Plus Stroke course (https://members.physio-pedia.com/learn/stroke/) we were extremely fortunate to record this interview with one of the UK’s leading paralympians, Megan Giglia MBE. In this interview Megan gives her unique perspective as a young stroke patient who has gone on to success at the highest sporting levels, including winning the first gold medal at the 2016 paralympics in Rio. Megan tells her deeply personal story and provides insights that all physiotherapists can learn from about the importance of the personal relationship between the patient and their therapist. She also describes how she challenged the health care team involved in her initial care and ultimately worked with her physios to define and use joint goal setting to motivate and guide her rehabilitation process.

We recommend listening to this conversation independent of the clinical area in which you practice as there are messages from Megan that all physical therapists can reflect upon.
