Physio Bikefit

What is PhysioBikefit?

PhysioBikefit is an assessment session with a qualified Chartered Physiotherapist who has specific PhysioBikefit training. Using a turbo trainer, the physiotherapist will assess your body mechanics whilst you are riding your bike and guide you through a range of exercises specific to cycling form to assess body mechanics.

 

Why PhysioBikefit?

Each body is different and optimising body mechanics can help increase performance, aid endurance during training or a race, and prevent injury.

During a PhysioBikefit session the Chartered Physiotherapist will measure and assess the body and the way it moves, in true cycling form, as well as making sure your bike is properly set up for you.

A PhysioBikefit session can help with the following cycling-specific issues:

  • Lower back & neck pain
  • Saddle discomfort
  • Knee and sit bone pain
  • Hand tingling and numbness
  • Inability to pedal well and efficiently

 

What does a PhysioBikefit session include?

  • History of training load, current or previous pains/injuries, and current bike set up
  • Cycling specific body measurements (leg length, forearm length, strength, flexibility, co-ordination and movement control)
  • Specific static measurements of the bike and your body position on the bike
  • A dynamic analysis of cycling using current video technologies.
  • Following an in depth assessment, an individualised tailored programme will be given to address any body inefficiencies
