Notice to all current and prospective clients
Cycle Dynamics will be temporarily closing in mid-September as the owner/operator, Ben Ward, will be taking a leave of absence to focus on his PhD studies. The length of the closure is yet to be determined, however, it is anticipated that it may last until early 2017. Arrangements to service existing clients on a limited basis during this time are being considered and details will be posted here once determined.
Anybody wishing to be placed on the cancellation list please use the contact form with “Cancellation list” as the subject line.
Performed by an experienced APA Sports Physiotherapist/Level 2 Cycling Coach, every bike fit is individualised to suit each client’s specific needs and physical capabilities. Please note that the standard bike fitting services do not include assessment of any specific injury concerns.
For those who are looking to purchase a new bike “off the rack” or get a custom frame, Cycle Dynamics provides pre-purchase fitting and advice. Poorly fitting bikes can not only result in pain, injury, poor performance and decreased enjoyment of the sport but can also have financial consequences (the money spent on a poorly fitting bike is a waste of money in its own right but can also lead to additional expense such as fees for treatment of any resultant pain/injury). With 10 years bike fitting experience and physiotherapy experience, Cycle Dynamics is also able to assist clients with specific needs that make it difficult to find an appropriate bike such as:
- very short or tall riders
- unusual body proportions
- significant structural asymmetries
- chronic musculoskeletal injuries/conditions
- neurological disorders
Cycling is a sport with an injury profile involving both acute traumatic injuries from accidents, overuse injuries (primarily involving the lower limbs), compressive injuries affecting the hands, saddle region and feet, and static/postural type injuries involving the spine and upper body. Managing cycling injuries effectively not only requires expertise in injury diagnosis and management but also a detailed knowledge of the physical demands of various forms of cycling, cycling biomechanics, the range of available equipment/components and the interaction between rider and the bike (especially how changes in one aspect of an individual’s setup affects other aspects).
There are many excellent clinicians and bike fitters around but relatively few who are qualified and experienced in both injury diagnosis/management and bike fitting. Cycle Dynamics is owned and operated by an APA Sports Physiotherapist with Level 2 Road & Track cycling coaching qualifications with 10 years experience in both physiotherapy and bike fitting so has the skills and knowledge to help get you back on your bike in the shortest possible time.
Cycle Dynamics isn’t just about cycling and offers regular physiotherapy services provided by a postgraduate trained APA Sports Physiotherapist for the treatment of spinal pain, traumatic/overuse sports injuries, occupational injuries and post-operative rehabilitation. Appointment structure:
- 1-on-1 consultations (no overlapping of patients)
- Up to 1hr for initial assessments to allow time for a thorough history and examination
- Brief, standard and long review appointments available depending on clinical need
- Availability outside normal business hours on some days
Please note that as Cycle Dynamics is located upstairs, any injuries or conditions for which stairs are an issue need advance notice prior to booking so that an alternate room downstairs can be arranged.
Cycle Dynamics has recently become the first dealer in Queensland for SQlab saddles. Ergonomically designed to relieve pressure on the perineal region, they are a great solution for those suffering persistent saddle discomfort or more serious saddle-related conditions.
