Bike season is well underway and many of Montana’s big events such as RATPOD and the Missoula XC are already over. However, don’t let a nagging injury or annoying pain end the season for you now! Read up on common cycling injuries and look into a professional bike fit at Alpine Physical Therapy. Don’t miss out on some of the best rides of the year that late summer and fall will provide!
People are getting results with the help of Alpine’s Jamie Terry, DPT, SCS. Jamie is a Sports Certified Specialist, and the first-ever graduate of the University of Montana’s Post-Professional Sports Medicine Residency Program (2011).
The feedback we’ve gotten from recipients of this new service at Alpine has been telltale. Even modest adjustments have had a great impact in reducing injuries among cyclists, not to mention major improvements in performance.

The Hammer Nutrition Pro XC two weeks ago up at Marshall Mountain was insane. Some of the most talented riders in the country were in our own back yard!
High level athletes are constantly pushing the limits and occasionally injury and rehabilitation become a part of the job. Alpine’s Jamie Terry had the opportunity to work with America’s top male athlete (and local), Sam Schultz. One of the best parts of the video is when Sam talks about the help he’s gotten from Jamie at Alpine. In his book, she’s tops as a PT. In fact, he refers to Jamie as the “ultimate physical therapist!” In our book, Sam and Jamie are tops!
Here’s what Sam had to say about his experience. To see this exciting yet brief video, click here.
To many people, bikes are the ticket to unlimited fun, freedom, and exceptional fitness. However, spending time on the bike can also give you tight shoulders, numb hands, sore knees, and terrible back pain. That is, until you get a pro bike fit from Alpine Physical Therapy’s sports and bike fit specialist
During your comprehensive, hour-long bike fit, Jamie will address the position, distance and angles of the three points of contact a rider has with the bike (on the pedals, saddle, and handle bars). Proper length between handle bars and saddle can help to alleviate back pain. Saddle height and foot position are important to unload the knees. And the angle of the handle bars will help combat hand numbness and shoulder pain.
But, that’s not all. Jamie will also address the need for shoe orthotics, cleat adjustments, different saddle widths, and stem angles. A full bike fit will not only make your bike more comfortable, but it will significantly increase your efficiency and power output, meaning more miles and speed for the same amount of effort!
So whether you ride mountain or road, recreationally or competitively, a professional bike fit can dramatically improve your riding experience. Call Alpine Physical Therapy to schedule with Jamie today by calling 251-2323.
