The CSPC Full Body Cyclist’s MOT is an off-bike assessment where we assess the body from head to toe assessing strength, stability, flexibility, balance, biomechanics, breathing and functional movement
In our experience of working with cyclists – from elite triathletes and semi pro cyclists to the novice and those completing long distance events – we have found there are many common problem areas, including hot or numb feet and hands, lower back and saddle pain, neck and shoulder discomfort and knee pain, to name just a few.
Quite often it’s not the bike but the body that needs the work. You may be feeling pain and discomfort when on the bike due to:
- Poor posture
- Inefficient and incorrect breathing pattern
- Poor foot and ankle flexibility, control, strength and relaxation of the foot
- Poor balance, stability and body awareness
- Tight and weak glutes with dominance of quads, low back and hamstrings
- Inability to dissociate upper and lower zones of the body
- Reduced hip and spinal mobility/range of motion
- Poor spinal and pelvic control
- Poor shoulder stability and connection to the body
Your physiotherapist will prescribe you with a strength and conditioning (S&C) programme to address any of these problems, to help you prevent injury and thereby improve the consistency of your training and performance on the bike.
When setting the S&C programme the physiotherapist will also take into account the type of bike and, if you compete, the event you are working towards to help you perform at your best.
Cost: 1.5 hours with a CSPC physiotherapist followed by a detailed report with findings and strength and conditioning programme. £158
