Is it the bike or your body?
Professional Cycling Analysis by a Tucson Physical Therapist!
Physical therapists are movement experts and specialize in bio-mechanics. Our physical therapist are athletes and former athletes themselves so we possess the understanding needed to deliver the best bike fitting in Tucson. Combine that knowledge with cycling technology and you get “The best fit and the best performance.” Agility is proud to service many people around the city with our bike fitting in Tucson program.
The Physical Therapists at Agility Physical Therapy focus on a two pronged approach to interacting with patients:
1. Manual therapy including spine manipulation to free movement
2. A “movement systems” approach to retraining proper movement
In the loose science of movement analysis/PT for cyclists, our therapists have worked to develop an understanding of optimum alignments on the bike and optimum movement patterns on top of that alignment.
We treat all cyclists by first looking for static/dynamic alignment on the bike in order to allow even stress distribution across muscles/joints. We then look at the patient in motion to identify improper loading patterns that may be inadvertently overloading structures.
Our success has been through using video analysis and objective measures of pedal force/power output to help patients visualize their own movement system.
We consider this practice to be one of identifying barriers to a patients sport success and a teaching moment involving either conscious control and modification or repetitive exercise to train proper patterns into the underlying nervous system. In other words, this can get you to the next level of performance.
*If you find yourself sore or hurting after a ride or you don’t feel right on your bike you may not be fit correctly. Or maybe you may not be maximizing your performance because of a poor fit, poor spinal movement, and muscular tightness.
