PTOSI Biking Program

June 10, 2016

Summer is prime cycling season and sometimes injuries happen.  The Therapists at PTOSI can help recreational and competitive bikers manage their current symptoms and return to biking with techniques to prevent future injuries.

Several Therapists at PTOSI bike to work everyday regardless of rain or snow, and some have biked to work for over 30 years! Our Biking Program is focused on treating and preventing injuries, and getting you back on the bike. Below are some additional details and information about what our Biking Program entails:
