Preventing Injury and Promoting Good Cycling Mechanics
Whether you’re a novice or a competitive cyclist, a properly fitting bike is key to healthy, fun and pain-free biking. Poor mechanical setup on your bike can lead to overuse injuries. These can be soft tissue injuries such as Achilles and patellar tendinitis, iliotibial band friction syndrome, low back or neck pain, or nerve compressions of the wrist/hand, neck, and lumbar spine.
Here at MedSport, we blend a sports medicine assessment and a systematic biomechanical analysis to properly fit riders to their bicycles. We developed our program by partnering with the Dutch-based Bikefitting group and with support from a University of Michigan Fostering Innovation Grant. The result is a comprehensive bicycle-fitting experience that will decrease the likelihood of injury.
MedSport’s Biomechanical Bike Fitting system works with all types of cyclists and all types of bikes, including:
- Time trial
We offer three levels of biomechanical fit and intervention depending on your needs. Contact us for further information.
