Event description

Description

Cycling is a sport involving high repetitions of the same movement, making it’s participants susceptible to overuse or overload injuries. The risk of injury will be increased if bike set up is less than ideal for that individual. It can also cause discomfort, inefficiency, and decrease performance. This session will outline what is involved in a Physiotherapy Bike Assessment lead by Nicole, looking at aspects of both the person and the bike, and how they interact.

When cyclists knees start to hurt, some of the problems will be in the soft tissue envelope, but others will involve the bearing surfaces. Adrian will largely refer to the latter in this session, including advances in the treatment of articular cartilage and meniscus injuries, including radiofrequency collation probe technology and meniscal scaffolds
