We are proud to provide the APTA Centennial Lecture Series, featuring recognized leaders on topics in clinical practice, practice management, payment, and innovation.
This course will provide a historical perspective of "bike fit", bicycle positioning as it relates to the physical therapy profession. It will charge the physical therapy profession to consider bicycle-related niche practices. This will allow the public to lean more towards and trust the physical therapy profession to effectively manage their bicycle movement needs as it relates neurological and musculoskeletal issues.
Bicycling is a form of recreation, rehabilitation, and transportation. Bicycling should play an important role with population health. The inclusion of bicyclist evaluation to the physical therapy practice makes good sense. Bicycling is a form of "gait", it is movement. It is well established that irregularities of gait or movement are causal factors of movement disorders. It is no different with a bicyclist and their bicycle equipment. A bicyclist with a bicycle related movement disorder should be evaluated by a Physical Therapist to assess and treat root cause of movement disorder. One should argue that treating a bicyclist without observing their equipment and the use of their equipment is incomplete and inefficient treatment. This course will describe and demonstrate best practices for Physical Therapists clinical work with bicyclists. This course will provide and demonstrate effective treatment interventions for the bicyclist.
More details, including registration information, will be posted here as it becomes available.
