Cycling Physiotherapy Melbourne
At Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy, we love cycling and understand the demands of cyclists. We don’t take the train, tram or bus, we ride to work and understand how cycling injuries occur and how our cycling physio in Melbourne can help. From recreational cyclists to competitive cyclists involved with criteriums or road races, we have the expertise to get you back on the bike and pedaling to success.
Why Do You Need Cycling Physiotherapy?
When it comes to finding a treatment for pain or rehabilitation from injury, physiotherapy is highly effective. Taking painkillers and other medication can help initially, but medications can mask the underlying cause of your problem, which is why our expertise in sports and musculoskeletal physiotherapy will quickly identify and address your injury.
When you make an appointment with one of our sports physiotherapists, they will take the time to understand your injury and then apply their knowledge and experience to determine the best course of action. All treatment plans are individualised to target the contributing factors to your specific problem. There isn’t a ‘one size fits all approach’ when it comes to cycling physiotherapy.
Physiotherapists can also educate you on how to prevent injuries from occurring in the future and can also give you performance tips so that you can slowly improve your cycling ability.
Do you need physio for cycling injuries?
If you’ve suffered an injury, it can be easy to try to either tough it out, or wait it out with the help of painkillers. This is not the best approach to take. Neither approach will actually help treat your injury. In fact, going a long period of time without addressing the injury is likely to make it worse in the future.
We offer cycling physio as well as preventative assessments at our world-class facility in Melbourne. Our treatments are tailored and suitable for everyone from the hobby cyclist to the professional. We have some of the most advanced physiotherapy equipment available in the greater Melbourne area, and all treatments are tailored to your specific issue.
The pain will come back and may get worse over time, as well as increase the risk of other injuries as you compromise your form to accommodate the pain. Even if you don’t believe your injury is serious enough to book an appointment with a physiotherapist, it’s always best to consult a professional in order to heal faster and avoid serious injury. Acting fast can mean that you will only require a few sessions, while a more advanced injury will need a lot more work and time.
Do I need a bike fit assessment?
We provide bike fit assessments, individualised physical and cycling examinations, and appropriate bike modifications to correct your positioning and make your bike a perfect fit for your body. This will improve your performance and reduce the risk of injury. Bike fit assessments are perfect for you if:
- You want to improve your performance when cycling and become faster
- You experience frequent injuries
- Your body is in pain or you feel uncomfortable when cycling
- You’ve just purchased a new bike
The first step if you want to start cycling physiotherapy is to book a consultation with the therapists at Melbourne CBD Physiotherapy. We will listen to your concerns and what you want to get out of the therapy, as well as assess your injury, in order to provide a treatment plan that is perfect for you. We provide you with an accurate diagnosis and clear expectations so you know exactly what to expect and how long recovery will take.
