Enjoy Biking With Family & Friends

Now that the weather is warmer, it's time to tune up the bikes!

Bicycle related pain and injuries may be commonly associated with poor bike fit. These postural tips will help you minimize the risk of injury:

  • Change hand position on the handlebars frequently for upper body comfort.
  • Keep a controlled but relaxed grip of the handlebars.
  • When pedaling, your knee should be slightly bent at the bottom of the pedal stroke. Avoid rocking your hips while pedaling.
  • Don't hunch your shoulders. Pull shoulders down and back to help open your chest and diaphragm.
  • Aim to keep your back straight by making a smooth, mostly straight line from your hips to your shoulders when riding.

 

 

Should I ask my doctor to refer me if I think I may need therapy?

Definitely. When you have a problem you think may be helped by physical therapy ask your doctor or give us a call and we will help you to determine if this is a problem that may be helped by physical therapy.

Your Right to Choose

The decision of where you go to receive treatment is
yours. If you have a specific therapist or practice you
would like to go to, you should let your doctor or
insurance company know this. Not all physical
therapists or practices are the same and the choice
of your provider is yours.
