What is it?

Using a turbo trainer we assess your position on your bike not just according to your height or leg length but taking account of your flexibility, posture and any previous injuries. Advice will be given regarding saddle height and fore/aft position, handlebar height and reach, crank length and cleat position.

Using observation and slow motion video footage of you pedalling we look at your pedalling dynamics including foot, ankle and knee position, pelvic stability, spinal posture, shoulder stability, upper limb posture and head position. We will observe you both in and out of the saddle.

We will then tailor a programme to address any problems identified. This may be physiotherapy treatment and rehabilitation, a programme of strengthening or stretching exercises and/or specific pedalling drills.
