CONDITIONS WE TREAT
The foot and ankle
Running is one of the easiest and most common ways to stay fit. Unfortunately, running injuries are common and can affect the hips, knees, ankles, and feet. A running gait assessment can help to reduce the risk of injury by exploring any biomechanical insufficiency that may predispose you to injury. Through digitally capturing your running gait frame by frame, we can identify areas that could lead to injury and effect your sporting ability. Equally as important, we look at your training loads in order to ensure your body’s capabilities match the demanded load.

Cycling is a fantastic low impact form of exercise that can be used at almost any age and any level of fitness. However, research has found that approximately 85% of cyclists will get injured, with the main areas being knee, neck and shoulders and lower back. Physiotherapists are uniquely placed to provide a comprehensive ‘bike-fit’ by using their extensive knowledge in anatomy and physiology.
A ‘bike-fit’ extended physiotherapy consultation
involves a thorough assessment of biomechanics both on and off the bike. Following this, we can identify areas where the cyclist will benefit from specific rehabilitation exercises and areas where adaptations need to be made on the bike. The result: a complete bike and body fit-out tailored to you, ensuring that your body and bike work seamlessly together to avoid injury.
Whether you are looking for comfort while cycling with the kids or looking to improve your efficiency and race results you can be confident that we can help you reach your goal.
During the 90 minute
session we will digitally assess your cycling technique and biomechanics on and off the bike, along with any injuries you are carrying. Your consultation will include:
- Cycling specific questioning
- Musculoskeletal screening
- Static examination on the bike looking at current bike set-up and measurements
- Video analysis of your cycling technique
- Adaptions to bike **
- Rehabilitation / management plan
- Advice on exercises and stretches to assist your performance.
** we work closely with the local bike shops should you need a specific bike part to improve your fit**
