SETUP & AWARENESS

PREVENT OR REDUCE PAIN

Cyclists spend hours on their bike. And serious cyclists will tell you that proper bike fit is essential to:

1- Produce the most power and efficiency
2- Increase strength
3- Decrease strain on the body and pain in the joints, legs, back, neck, and wrists.

A good fit can also help prevent overuse injuries. The correct position on the bike varies from person to person. Factors include:

1- Style of riding, and
2- A person's flexibility, strength, and competitiveness.

After a bike fit, our physical therapists recommend the best stretch and strength exercises that will enhance performance and prevent injury.

BIKE FIT SERVICES

Running is a great form of exercise and fitness. But running is a high impact and repetitive activity. If one's running mechanics is not ideal, it can cause pain and injuries. Some of the more common running injuries we see include:

Hip pain
Knee injury
Iliotibial band dysfunction
Stress fractures, and
Back pain

Assessing how one runs is therefore important, not only to avoid injury, but also to increase performance. During a running analysis we identify and correct faulty movement patterns that include:

1- Body position
2- Foot strike
3- Hip and knee alignment
4- Joint stiffness
5- Muscle weakness or tightness, and
6- Hypo or hyper mobility.
