Physio in London with cycling expertise

CubicCubic Posts: 594
Hi, could someone recommend a physio in London (ideally SW) who has expertise in cycling injuries?

I've been having a persistant ache/pain in my left buttock, which seems to be my Piriformis, but need to get an expert to do a proper assessment. Stretching and foam rollering have helped, but not cured the problem and it's limiting the time I can spend on the bike. :(

Thanks for any help!

  • Hi,

    Physio will help but unless you address why your Piriformis is hypertonic you will get limited results regardless of how good a physio you see.

    I'd advice seeing a C.H.E.K practitioner to get a full postural & muscular assessment, very basically you need to correct any postural defects, lengthen tight short muscles, strengthen long/short/weak muscles & improve core/stabilizer muscles specific to you, all of which can only be prescribed after careful assessments.

    I'm not located on London but I do specialize in nutritional & orthopedic rehabilitation

    All the best
