Directors: Dana Kotler, MD and Greg Robidoux, PT

Location: Boston Marriott Cambridge
 

An increasing number of people are riding bicycles for recreation, fitness, transportation, and competition. Because of its low-impact nature, clinicians often recommend cycling for physical activity in patients of all ages. In spite of its evidence-based health benefits, cycling is also associated with a variety of conditions and injuries specific to the sport and sports medicine providers are seeing an increase in both traumatic and overuse injury related to cycling.

Participants of this workshop will:

  • Learn state-of-the-art strategies for evaluation and management of cycling related injuries from international leaders in cycling medicine
  • Participate in hands-on workshops for evaluation of bicycle fit, rehabilitation for cyclists, and acute injury management

Our multidisciplinary faculty features experts in the fields of biomechanics, bike fit, race medicine, physical therapy, and sports psychology. Highlights of this innovative course include:

  • Biomechanics and bike fit for the sports medicine provider
  • Updates in injury prevention at the national level
  • Psychology of trauma, repercussions of cycling crashes
  • Considerations for injury prevention in a variety of cycling disciplines including road, mountain biking, and triathlon
  • Adapting cycling for age and ability
