About the Cyclist's Clinic

Through biomechanical evaluations of cyclists both on and off their bicycles we are able to use the findings we’ll keep your wheels spinning. Using the latest clinical research, our clinicians make fit adjustments to the bicycle, correct musculoskeletal issues through therapeutic exercises and manual therapy to improve your posture and form with cycling specific training and instruction.

Our services, as performed by licensed physical therapists, are typically covered by health insurance. Please contact your insurance company prior to making your appointment to verify your coverage and referral requirements regarding physical therapy benefits.
