Welcome to our cycling link. As you’ve most probably gathered by now it’s a sport I’m undeniably passionate about. So much so I’ve developed ‘Cycle Performance Chiropractic’ which is a facility specifically structured for cyclists that I hope one day will be able to fund research in to a wide variety of musculoskeletal related performance issues unique to cycling. As you can see, I have been Chiropractor to the French Cycling Team Ag2r LaMondiale during the Tour Down Under almost since its’ inception. Over the years I’ve also had the honour of working with numerous riders from a myriad of other International and European teams, SaxoBank, Astana, Lampre, Garmin and BMC being just a few. Working with riders I particularly admire like Cadel Evans, Phillipe Gilbert, Maxime Bouet and Simon Gerrans has been nothing less than inspiring to say the least.
Meanwhile, in our clinic, we help a variety of riders ranging from the hard core, to the weekend warrior through to the Sunday morning café set. We love them all and more importantly respect each and every one for pursuing their own individual health and performance goals and for wanting to be their absolute best, no matter what.
We deal with a broad spectrum of cycling related conditions ranging from the very common low back pain, knee pain, neck and mid back problems, repetitious injuries and soft tissue conditions. We also address a vast range of biomechanical problems that often result from structural instability of the spine and pelvis.
In fact, very often riders pay serious money for the latest high-tech bike and are set-up professionally within theoretically correct parameters. However, despite that, as time goes on they wonder why they either end up creating new injuries or exacerbating old ones. All too often we see riders dealing with seemingly minor aggravations that ultimately turn nasty leading to loss of muscle economy, bony degeneration and a myriad of musculoskeletal problems.
Worse still, they continue to blame their bike set-up and end up dabbling rather than turning their attention to a proper analysis of their own skeletal structure. If that sounds like you – don’t.
First of all, get yourself checked and then dependent on the outcome, have your bike re-set by a professional. In fact, we have a special opportunity for you to get yourself checked right now.
For our cyclists we provide a full posture evaluation including infra-red thermal imaging in return for a $30 donation to the Amy Gillett Foundation. You’re always welcome to give my staff a call on (08) 8297 5277 and make a suitable time.
Should you prefer to ride when you come to see us, by all means do so. We have safe facilities in our office in which to leave your bike.
Meanwhile why not click on to a few of the articles I’ve written for Bicycling Australia magazine, they may well answer a few questions relating to your own health or performance concerns.
Until then – ride safely and I look forward to seeing you soon.
