BIKE FIT PERFORMANCE
WHY HAVE A PROFESSIONAL BIKE FITTING PERFORMED?
At Pro Motion Physical Therapy, Katie Huibregtse, DPT, CSCS, FAFS is trained to fit individuals to their bicycles to enable them to have more enjoyable, efficient, and pain free rides. As a physical therapist and BikeFit Pro, she is able to provide a custom fit that will go beyond the typical bike fit that is done at most bike shops. The origin of the pain is identified based on a musculoskeletal exam and addressed through specific exercises and adjustments to the bike, including wedging — a process that controls the amount of internal rotation of the limb. Excessive internal rotation can result in inefficient mechanics and increase the risk of injury. Wedging is used for similar purposes as motion control shoes in running.
DOES MEDICAL INSURANCE COVER BIKE FITTING
Insurance will often cover bike fitting if you also have a medical diagnosis such as low back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, or knee pain. Bike fitting is also offered on a cash pay basis when no medical diagnosis is present.
