Your cycling technique is critical to ensure you optimise performance and remain injury-free. A biomechanics assessment might make all the difference, whether you cycle for pleasure, weight loss, general fitness, competition or rehabilitation after illness or injury.
A biomechanical cycle assessment takes 60 minutes in which time a full subjective history and objective measurements are carried out to assess any injuries you are currently experiencing. Muscle length, strength and core are checked and problematic or weak areas identified.
Our ergo trainer enables our physiotherapists to conduct an assessment of your individual cycling style on your own bike, or the one you are about to buy to make sure it’s right for you. Using video analysis, measurements are taken of the trunk, hip, knee and upper limb angles.
Advice is given regarding ideal cycling techniques. Adjustments are then made to your bike set up to optimise cadence and relieve stress on musculoskeletal structures. You are then given an information sheet of the changes and any exercises to perform, and you have the opportunity afterwards of emailing or calling a physiotherapist for further advice.
Assessments are carried out by Faye Peck at St John’s Wood (020 7806 4010) and Chelsea (020 7404 6343) and Paul King at Chancery Lane (020 7404 6343).
