Are you and your bike ready for spring? Matt Flood, a physical therapist at Broadway Physical Therapy and Sports Rehabilitation, adjusts bikes for a wide range of cyclists.
“Proper fitting of the rider to the bicycle can both prevent injury and accommodate existing injuries,” said Flood. “Our goal is to make bikes more comfortable for folks and help them to ride longer and faster. If they already have an issue, we can adjust for that during the fitting.”
Using his knowledge of biomechanics to examine leg length, limb alignment, overall mobility and flexibility, Flood checks points of contact on the saddle, handlebars and pedals to mitigate excessive pressure and prevent injury. A good fit can benefit cyclists at all levels – from recreational to professional.
