Medicine of Cycling is once again announcing a collaborative effort with the International Bike Fitting Institute (IBFI) to professionalize bike fitting and showcase the skills of those at the top of the industry.
Experts in cycling-specific fields, including fitters and medical professionals working with Pro Tour athletes and teams, will be speaking on a variety of topics, as well as providing hands-on training in managing acute cycling injuries and bike fitting.
The program is open to all professionals including MDs, paramedics, medical students, NPs, PAs, physical therapists, coaches, bike fitters and soigneurs.
This unique academic symposium is led by Curtis Cramblett PT and serves as the non-partisan platform for information-sharing of valuable content for retail and medical bike fitters alike, with presenters from all fields of expertise.
Discussions and presentations focus on anatomic and structural understanding, available tools, learning high and low-tech techniques to serve fitters, medical experts, and coaches at every level.
