SCIENCE OF CYCLING – Physio Bikefit Level 1A&B

26-27 October 2018

Paul Visentini, Specialist Sports Physiotherapist (FACP)

A 1.5 day course presenting the ‘all-you-need-to-know’ of Cycling Related Injury Management, and how you can realistically make Cycling Assessment a part of your everyday practice.

Cycling is a complex interaction between man and machine, and so both the body and the bike need to be included in a clinical reasoning process, aimed at injury management and prevention, as well as improved performance.

Knowledge of bike set-up and movement analysis are essential for cycling assessment and the Science of Cycling will present a clinical framework to guide your practice and process. The weekend lectures give an overview of the scientific literature related to cycling injury including; injury epidemiology, cycling kinematics, rehabilitation strategies and performance optimisation. The Physiobikefit component is the assessment of the body and the bike, an essential ingredient to good management of the cyclist.
