Our Treatment Method

How We Treat Cycling Pain

As fellow cyclists, we’re aware of the stresses that prolonged hours on a bike take on your body. So we’ll get you on our bike and see how you move while you ride. We focus on your postures and compare them to what muscles or body areas may be weak. This allows us to address those areas specifically and work with you to make a more comfortable, more enjoyable ride.

How are We Qualified?

We’re Passionate About Cycling & Physical Therapy

When we’re not treating patients, you can probably catch us volunteering at cycling events or getting in a couple of miles of our own. We love the community that cycling creates and the sport itself.

We totally understand the physical toll that cycling can have on your body, so we can pinpoint the root cause of problems faster and easier than non-cyclist physical therapists.

We deal with cycling injuries often – because we get them often.

Manual Therapy

How We Achieve A Better Diagnosis with Less Discomfort

What is manual therapy? Manual therapy is a method physical therapy that involves the therapist feeling exactly how your body reacts to specific movement and exercises. A lot of pain and discomfort comes from lack of mobility or a small range of motion. Through simple movements and exercises, we're able to get your body used to these motions again, reducing or completely removing your pain.

Manual therapy includes a detailed biomechanical assessment. This means that your therapist will watch and feel how you move in order to make the most accurate diagnosis possible. This leads to faster recovery times and improved outcomes.
