How do I know if I need a Bike Fit?
A Therapeutic Bike fit at Broadstone Physiotherapy can help if you experience:
- Neck ache/pain (such as after endurance/Sportive events)
- Knee pain (which can be brought on after tough hill sessions)
- Wrist/Arm/Shoulder pain
- Back pain
- Hamstring pain or tightness
- Calf pain or tightness
- If you have had recent Orthopaedic surgery (joint replacement surgery for example can change your range of movement and biomechanics)
- If you just want to optimise your position on your bike to improve comfort and prevent injury.
Firstly we take a thorough history and then carry out a Physiotherapy assessment to diagnose any injuries and look at muscle strength and joint range of movement.
45 min assessment – £65
We then set your bike up on a turbo trainer and take static measurements and using Dart Fish Video Motion Capture, analyse your technique. By using a thorough analysis of your biomechanics on and off the bike, we can get to the source of your pain and treat it effectively.This means not only adjusting your bike for a more comfortable fit, but also using physiotherapy treatment techniques and designing a specific strength and conditioning programme.
