As a rider-owned company, Bicycle Broker’s team is made up of avid bike enthusiasts. We’ve traveled for mountain bike races, worked with professional riders, and attended many major cycling events.
We know firsthand what it’s like not to have comprehensive options for cycling injuries. This sparked our goal of bridging cyclists to the best and latest professional care they can get.
If you’re recovering from a bike accident and want to get back on the saddle ASAP… Read on to see why Physiotherapy might just be what you need to have a quick recovery.
What is Physiotherapy?
Physiotherapy is a treatment that may help you maintain and recover your mobility, general health, fitness, and well-being. Physiotherapists can treat various conditions affecting your musculoskeletal system through physical rehabilitation, education, and injury prevention methods.
Is Physiotherapy effective for cycling injuries?
Physiotherapy may treat many injuries (and even post-surgical recoveries) affecting your function and strength. Depending on your needs, you can find a range of Physiotherapists specializing in sports, geriatric, neurological treatments, and more.
You can see a sports physiotherapist trained in Cyclist Physiotherapy for cycling injuries. They may aid in the following aspects:
- Enhancing cycling performance
- Preventing cycling injuries (also called pre-habilitation)
- Rehabilitating or recovering quickly from injuries
