This course is designed specifically for healthcare practitioners, scientists, therapists and coaches whom are looking to develop their holistic management of cycling related pathologies. The content will be delivered at post grad level, therefore prior knowledge of anatomy and physiology is expected, however we do not expect you to be overfamiliar with cycling itself.
We will combine a mix of theory and practical workshops:
- Basic anatomy and cycling biomechanics
- Subjective and objective assessment skills
- Common cycling injuries and their management strategies
- Clinically reasoning bike fit - practical workshop
- Current trends in cycling/bike fit
- Case studies
- Current literature and trends
Particular emphasis will be given to management of road cyclists, please note there is an expectation that you undertake some pre course reading and assessment in order to make the most of this seminar.
Course: 9.00am - 5.30pm
Post course coffee: 5.30pm - 6.00pm
