Onward Physical Therapy - Bike Fit Specialists

What Does a professional bike fitting Look Like?

At Onward, your Bike Fitting is performed by a medical professional. While we’re happy to tweak your seat height, we specialize in a much more complex fit than what you’d expect from a local bike shop. Our highly trained therapists delve in to find the root cause of any pain, dysfunction, or performance gaps you may be experiencing from an ill-fitting bike. However, riding without pain requires an approach that takes into account the bike & the rider! So, if you’re cycling through discomfort caused by previous injuries or movement abnormalities, we can help.

When it comes to bike fitting, a few millimeters and degrees, can mean hours and miles. Whether you’re logging those miles on the pavement, or the dirt, we can help get you back to pain free cycling!

“I had accepted that my competitive running days were over. After working with other providers and not seeing anything but short-term changes I was feeling defeated. Then I went to Onward! They built my strength back up and did a detailed analysis of my running form. I was shocked how small tweaks created such huge changes. I’m not back to marathons yet, but I will be soon. Thanks for giving me hope again!”
