Injuries that occur while participating in sports fall into 2 categories: acute injury and overuse injury. Physiotherapists are experts in biomechanics and can address movement dysfunctions. They provide the path to rehabilitation ensuring you return to sport as quickly and as safely as possible.
Cycling is a physically demanding activity requiring repetition under load which can lead to overuse injuries. Because the interaction between cyclist and bike is highly complex, a professional bike fit can minimise this risk. Many variables influence fit and comfort such as the cyclist’s size, shape, experience, goals, flexibility and strength.
An understanding of anatomical and biomechanical factors make physiotherapists the most qualified to provide a bike-fitting service and treat common complaints such as knee pain, low back pain, neck pain and lack of power.
