If a bike rider is having discomfort on the bike – the most common complaints are pain/numbness in the neck, back, knees, saddle area, and hands/feet – they can choose to see:
A doctor / physical therapist
Medical professionals are very knowledgable about your body, but they don't always know a lot about cycling or proper bike-fitting. (In fact, many will say “just stop riding your bike already.”)
A bike shop employee
Bike shop employees are very knowledgeable about bikes and the latest equipment, but they probably don't know a lot about an individual's specific body mechanics and the underlying cause of pain.
What if there was a third option?
The best solution: a wellness clinic that combines the “medical side” – diagnosing and treating a bike rider’s pain – with specialized bike-fit skills and passion for all levels of cycling.
This option exists: Pedal PT.
