Cycling Assessment

Cycling Assessments in Melbourne's CBD

Our Physiotherapy team employ leading clinical practices to perform a thorough cycling assessment. This includes reviewing the causative factors that have led to your injury, symptoms, or issues with your cycling movement or technique.

Cycling assessments are performed mostly by our Rehabilitation Physiotherapists.  These assessments are a specialised service for all cyclists; road cyclists, mountain bikers, or beginners looking to resolve an injury, or improve technique and capabilities.  These may be related to a current training plan or specific goal.

Assessments allow us to analyse factors contributing to a current or past injury, fitness levels, as well as identifying areas for improvement in strength and flexibility to reduce the potential for injury. Under the guidance of our specifically trained physiotherapists, Cycling assessments can help you ride stronger, more efficiently, and for longer.  We have Rehabilitation Physiotherapists who are also cyclists—from social to elite level—to help with programming or goal setting.

Our approach to cycling assessments

Pure Physio is driven to achieve the gold standard of cycling outcomes.  Regardless of whether you’re a beginner, elite athlete, part of a community group, or anything in-between, we’re motivated to help you achieve your fitness objectives and goals.

We understand the impact of injury or pain on your work and lifestyle.  We are passionate and motivated to work as a team to achieve your unique goals, and promote your general health and wellbeing.

Cycling is a simple form of exercise that caters for varying levels of fitness while improving physical and mental health. However, due to the repetitive nature of the exercise, appropriate technique, strength and mobility are vital. As the same movement is repeated every pedal, technique inefficiencies multiply the chance of injury.

Our Physiotherapists take 60- to 90-minutes for a thorough assessment, to provide feedback, and then get to work on correcting or managing your presentation. We address the musculoskeletal biomechanics, physiology of injury recovery, technique factors, and holistic psychological and social factors at play.  We believe time for detail, education, and explanation is fundamental. With advanced video technology and fully equipped gyms— including Cycling Wind Trainers with component parts for varying wheels sizes—we analyse and implement the crucial requirements for your cycling success. We also work closely with cycling podiatrists, cycling shops, orthopaedic surgeons and sports doctors.  We perform ergonomic assessments within office spaces where posture may be a significant contributing factor to cycling injury or reduced performance.  With two clinics in Melbourne CBD, and a team of clinically skilled physiotherapists, we are passionate to see you achieve your goals.

Why our Cycling assessments work

Following our detailed assessment, we communicate all our musculoskeletal and biomechanical findings to you in a way you can understand and apply.  This forms the basis of recommendations around technique retraining, required improvements in strength or mobility, and programming specific to you and your athletic pursuits to ensure appropriate increases in your cycling volume, power or speed.

Treatment Plans commonly follow a cycling assessment.  In order to achieve your best outcomes, we know that components of both Manual Therapy (hands on treatment) and Physical Rehabilitation may be required. As part of our commitment to holistic treatment, we ensure open communication with cycling coaches, orthopaedic specialists, or personal trainers is maintained at all times to further facilitate your best outcomes.
