Cycling Set-Up & Cyclist Screening Service
When riding, do you ever suffer from:
1. Back, Hip or Knee pain
2. Stiff/sore neck
Lack of power and explosiveness?
Do you feel uncomfortable on your bike?
If the answer is 'yes' to any of the above questions, then perhaps your bike set-up is incorrect and could potentially cause injuries. Many cyclists have an incorrect bike set-up or poor technique, which can lead to acute and chronic injuries or decreased cycling performance.
Many cyclists suffer pain and reduced performance unnecessarily. Clinical assessment of the cyclist at FARC will allow you to:
• Maximise performance
• Reduce pain
• Prevent injury
• Get more out of your cycling.
The bicycle is the most efficient machine ever invented. However, the performance of this unique man/machine unit is affected most by the function of the Human element. Important human factors include:
• Body measures and dimensions
• Regional strengths and weaknesses
• Cycle set up and body position.
Bring the following to the bike set-up session:
• Bicycle (with appropriate "slick" tyres for a stationary trainer)
• Cycling shoes
• Orthoses if applicable
• Cycling shorts and jersey
Note: Bike must be in good mechanical order.
Please allow up to 90 minutes for a session.
The bike set up and cyclist screening service is available with the OPSMC cycling physiotherapists at our Launceston clinic only
