From North Yorkshire Physiotherapy.
Cyclist Injury Assessment and Bike Fitting at NYP is a new service that we are offering for cyclists of all levels. This service is aimed at:
- maximising performance
- maximising comfort
- decreasing pain whilst cycling
- preventing pain whilst cycling
Bike fit will include a combination of:
- physiotherapist assessment of the ranges of motion of the cyclist
- assessment of the strength and flexibility of the cyclist
- assessing the position of the cyclist on the bike
Cycling is a form of exercise that should not cause pain. Therefore, most injuries on a bike are caused by trauma. Overuse or static loading injuries are due to poor biomechanics on the bike.
We aim to correct these by addressing both the rider and the bike to find the optimum position that the rider is able to assume to improve comfort, pain, and performance.
This service is conducted by Dallas Newton who is an experienced cyclist and student of all things cycling. He has experience of working with many sports people, from the professional to the weekend warrior.
