Bike Fit Evaluation

Whether you are a competitive cyclist, bike commuter, or just ride for fun, you and your bike should fit well together and work as an integrated unit. A proper bike fit minimizes discomfort, increases efficiency, and helps prevent pain or injury. Creekside therapists can evaluate your body's bike position to make sure that your biking style "fits" your functional goals, whether they are focused on recreation, competition, or practical transportation. Common bike related injuries can include: front knee pain, neck pain, low back pain, inflammation of the hamstring or IT band, and numbness or pain in the hand or foot. If you are coming in for a bike evaluation, please bring in your bike as well as your normal cycling attire.

Running/Gait Analysis

What is a gait analysis?
Gait analysis is a method used to assess the way you walk or run to highlight biomechanical abnormalities. You will spend approximately 60 minutes with a board certified Physical/Occupational therapist who will provide you with a complete lower body screen, including assessment of foot, ankle, knee, and hip biomechanics and a videotaped running or walking gait analysis. After information is gathered, an exercise protocol is prescribed that is specific to your needs. Additionally, we can work with your physician to fit you for orthotics and/or precisely match a proper shoe type with your foot/body type.

Golf Swing Evaluation

What is the golf swing evaluation?
The evaluation is a collaborative work between us, the golfer, and the teaching professional. The premise of this program is to perform a comprehensive musculoskeletal evaluation of the golfer, looking at range of motion, strength, flexibility and neuromuscular recruitment patterns specific to the golf swing. With the information from the evaluation, we will develop a functional program that will be integrated with the drills and instructions of the teaching professional or coach. Basically, the goal of this program is not to change your swing mechanics, but to get your body into the correct position to achieve the desired swing. Our expertise is in musculoskeletal assessment, while the teaching professional's expertise is in swing mechanics. Together, we are able to provide any golfer with an optimal swing for each individual goal.
