Chartered physiotherapist registered with the Health and Care Professions Council
Nichola set up Velophysio to provide physiotherapy specifically for cyclists and triathletes. As a cyclist herself she understands the complex nature of the bike, training, biomechanics, and bike fit, and realised this expertise was currently lacking in the field of Physiotherapy outside of the professional teams.
Nichola has helped hundreds of cyclists and triathletes recover from injury and get back on the bike. Offering insight, knowledge, diagnostic skill, a variety of treatments including acupuncture, manual therapy, massage and specific rehabilitation. Riders have gone on to great achievements from riding their first century, completing the Transcontinental race, competing in Kona, to riding around the world.
"Very very personalised service. You arrive, they expect you, greet you by first name, have checked your file from past visits and set out very clearly what the process will be, what issues they're looking to address and how and they are happy to take the time to walk you through everything in layman's terms. Almost any professional service entity could learn a lot from how Cyclefit works. "
"Hey Julian and Phil,
I hope you are both well.
I just completed a 21 hour week on my new 165mm cranks and I am in love. They feel so so great!
Thank you for all your help. I’ve never felt so comfortable on my bike before.
All the best,
National Champion / Professional Bike Rider
"I tried the shorter cranks today and I like them - it feels like it's less stress for the back and it seems easier to ride higher cadence. In the end I had a good Tour with no back problems. Thanks for your help!"
"Thanks very much Phil.
Did an 80 mile sportive yesterday on the road bike - perfect set up thanks; I've never been so comfortable, and no after effects!
"A highly personalized and very friendly service, giving good advice and adjustments that are helpful whatever level of cyclist you are."
