Expert Bike-Fitting incorporating data from the world-leading Retul 3D System to optimise your:
I’ve been an avid on-road and off-road cyclist for over 30 years, and since the early 2000’s I’ve been a Physiotherapist, professional bike-fitter and educator, helping thousands of cyclists just like you at my clinic, Cycling Physiotherapy Centre. Over the years I’ve treated and rehabilitated the full spectrum of cycling injuries and symptoms, both acute and chronic, and I’ve provided over 2000 bike-fits for cyclists of all ages and abilities – commuters, recreational riders, weekend warriors and elite racers. I’ve also provided physiotherapy services at cycling events, presented at cycling coaching camps, and run professional development in-services for other therapists working with cyclists. I look forward to helping you to ride at your best and to reach your ultimate cycling goals.
“Having assisted thousands of cyclists over my 20 years as a Physiotherapist I understand that optimal cycling performance and comfort is best achieved by the ideal combination of physical therapy, bike-fitting and expert advice so that you and your bike will work in harmony.” Lucas Owen
The unique value of my bike-fitting service is my ability as a Physiotherapist to analyse your existing movement patterns and physical attributes, and to then combine the findings from this assessment with the data from the Retul 3D Motion Capture system to achieve your optimal riding position.
Rider positioning from my perspective, therefore, is the process of matching your ‘bike-fit’ with your current cycling fitness level and goals, whilst recognising and anticipating that as your fitness and goals change, so too will your optimal bike fit.
Professional cyclists benefit from daily physical therapy during a race, and it is essential to prevent and treat injuries by releasing muscle tightness, restoring the natural mobility and alignment of the spine and joints, and promoting healing and recovery through stimulation of blood and lymphatic flow.
These same benefits can be experienced by cyclists of all ages and abilities, and depending upon the issue you require treatment for I utilise Physiotherapy techniques including massage, joint mobilisation, myofascial release, assisted stretching and dry needling.
Cycling is a time-intensive sport and most cyclists that I treat prioritise time on the bike over ‘cross-training’ such as core stability, flexibility or functional strength training. However, there are very real benefits that can be achieved from a personalised off-bike exercise program.
A detailed physical assessment is essential before creating any exercise program, and using my unique 10-step assessment system you will receive a tailored program to assist you to develop the mobility to sustain an optimal riding position as well as the stability to act as a foundation for effective power production and fatigue resistance.
