Bike-Fit for Injury Prevention
Our Bike-fit is designed around comfort and injury prevention/rehabilitation and derived from functional anatomy and biomechanics. Our years of clinical experience in postural correction is now focused on synchronising you and your bike.
The range of bike-fits can cover: discussion of your riding experience and goals, medical history, physical examination, bike mechanical problems and any particular issues which you may have with your current bike setup, such as back, neck or knee pain.
Your bike will be placed on a stationary turbo and will include observation of your riding style, assesment of your fit and form on the bike and then suitable corrections will be made.
Depending on your needs, the fitter will address cleat setup, seat height, pedaling motion & reach to the handlebars. A fit can take between one to four hours depending on the package you select.
We offer several packages of bike-fit from basic set-up to full injury rehabilitation and treatment.
Running Analysis for Injury Prevention
Our running analysis is designed to determine the biomechanical cause of your running injury and help prevent future injury. We will identify movement patterns in your running gait that likely contribute to injury and inefficiency and then re-educate basic running technique.
We will use Dynamic Movement Skills to identify compensatory movement, single leg discrepancies, and muscle activation issues and then help you to re-educate and correct your basic running technique
