Physiotherapist Led Bike Fitting
To answer this need, we look at the rider’s technique and the strength of major muscle groups to create a riding position that ensures maximum power is transferred through the pedals without pain or discomfort.
The process of a bike fit looks at individual needs and takes into consideration all cycling aspects to achieve a fit that performs to your potential. A physiotherapist’s framework ensures the process will be tailored to you and gives you the confidence to train and improve without risk of overuse injury.
Whether you’ve purchased a new bike, in need of a tune up, or have a current injury—a bicycle fitting led by a physiotherapist will benefit you and your ride.
