Matthew qualified in 1997 with a BSc (Hons) in Physiotherapy from the University of Birmingham. He has a specialist interest in cycling injuries and bike fitting as well as treating a variety of musculoskeletal conditions in all age groups.
This service comprises an initial assessment followed by treatment sessions. The first consultation usually lasts up to 1 hour and is fundamental to the process of understanding a patient’s problems. It is the opportunity for the patient to give a detailed description of their injury history and other relevant medical issues.
In brief following the completion of subjective questionnaire an initial physical assessment will be undertaken by the Physiotherapist to gain an understanding of a cyclists body shape, flexibility and whether there are any functional weaknesses or asymmetries relative to cycling. This is followed by an observation of the cyclist pedalling on a static turbo trainer on his/her bicycle.
