Professional Bike Fitting
Why Choose a Professional Bike Fitting at Excel Physical Therapy?
At Excel, 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 or dysfunction you may be having from an ill-fitting bike. If you’re riding through discomfort caused by previous injuries or movement abnormalities, we can help. Sometimes it’s the smallest changes that make the most profound differences. Our medical approach uncovers exactly what adjustments will make your riding experience one of positioned perfection. This is often covered by your medical insurance. Let our medical professionals make the changes you need to get back to pain-free cycling.
How Can a Professional Bike Fitting Help Me?
Whether you’re a cat 2 racer, mountain biker, or a complete novice, a professional bike fitting can make all the difference in the quality of your ride. Better alignment is sometimes the difference of millimeters, but it’s those millimeters that move you toward perfect alignment, reduce stress on the body and increase performance.
What to Expect from an Excel Physical Therapy Bike Fitting:
- Physical therapy evaluation performed by a specialized PT. Be sure to bring your bike and bike gear!

- Exercise prescription for injury prevention and pain reduction
- Dynamic and static bike positioning assessment

Will insurance cover my Bike Fitting?
Your medical insurance typically covers physical therapy pertaining to a medical diagnosis such as neck pain, knee tendonitis, etc. If you’re in pain while cycling, we’re usually able to bill your insurance for our services. If you don’t have medical insurance, call us about our Cash Pay Bike Fitting rates today.

"I was struggling with wrist pain for over a year, and I thought I had to do surgery and injections to make it better. Jason was a life-saver. I am doing my exercises, and my work at the computer doesn't bother me any more! I feel ready to resume my yoga practices as well.
