Makovicka Physical Therapy
recently partnered with Bike Masters Cycling to offer a Concierge Bike Fit
service not found anywhere in the metro Omaha or Lincoln area. The closest
comparable bike fit is in Des Moines. Bike Masters Cycling moved its shop in
mid-April from 132nd & Fort to 210 Cumberland Drive in Elkhorn.
Concierge Bike Fits will
utilize 3D motion capture technology using the Specialized Retul system, which
accurately measures every degree of movement and millimeter of distance,
providing the cyclist and fitter with the data to support the choices made
during the fit. What makes this bike fit unique in our area is the
partnership with a respected, locally owned physical therapy company—Makovicka Physical
Therapy. The added benefit of a movement
specialist–Chris Derozier PTA, a Makovicka staff member certified by
Specialist on the Retul system– is Derozier understand body mechanics from
training and experience, and he has been an avid cyclist the majority of his
Fits will take Retul data a step further to provide an understanding of
body mechanics and a review of riding style. The opportunity to work with a
physical therapist assistant to help overcome discomfort on the bike, help
prevent injuries, and optimize performance will provide a revolutionary service
in our region.
“The opportunity to work with a visionary owner like
Rob Shrader, where we can bring our expertise to his premier shop is a true
win-win”, said Joel Makovicka PT, DPT, and President of Makovicka Physical
Therapy. “We are excited to partner with Bike Masters and look forward to
propelling bike fits to a new level in our community”.
Bike Masters Cycling will offer 5 levels of bike fitting to
address the needs of all cyclists.
Concierge Bike Fits are available by appointment, and may take up
to 5 hours to complete. Contact Bike Masters Cycling at 402-964-1080 for more
