If Triathlon is your sport then whether you are a seasoned Professional taking part in international competitions or an absolute beginner just starting out in the sport, if you have an injury or just want to stay injury free, then Core Fitness & Physiotherapy can help you!
We start your Physiotherapy management with a comphensive subjective assessment in order to find out about your training history, training goals and any previous injuries you may have suffered from. This is followed by a thorough physical examination to determine possible causes of your problem. We may perform a gait assessment and if appropriate we are able to make referals to an Orthotist if insloes are required. You can also bring your bike along with you and we can assess your riding position to find out if it is this causing the injury. We work closely with York Cycleworks who provide a full cycle fitting service.
