Pain or discomfort with cycling? Looking to ride at a higher level?
Cycling Performance assessments are for cyclists who want to ride with less pain, pedal with greater efficiency, and take their ability to the next level. Assessments can be completed on a standard road, mountain, or time trial bike for any level of recreational or competitive athlete. Certain medical conditions may be the basis for billing physical therapy services to health insurance, in which case a physician referral with diagnosis is required.
