Biomechanical Stretching and Correction Program

Biomechanical Stretching and Correction Program
Here are some exercises that cyclists should routinely undertake to prevent patellofemoral pain….

1.Lower Back and Glute Stretch

2.Piriformis Stretch

3.Gluteus Medius Stretch

4.ITB Stretch

5.Rectus Femoris Stretch

Please note though that whilst it is possible to re-produce or learn these stretches from a book or off the internet there is often a fine line as to their degree of efficacy, especially the ITB stretch. Given the amount of valuable training time you will be putting into this routine it is strongly advised that you are taught these on a one to one basis by a suitably skilled physiotherapist! If you are taught them once well then you have this skill for life!
