BikePT Bronze class in Boston

On April 26 and 27, 2013, the PT Club at MGH Institute of Health Professions is teaming up with BikePT™ to bring to the Boston area a unique perspective on bicycle-related injuries, treatment, and bicycling biomechanics.

BikePT teaches the complementary relationship between musculoskeletal knowledge with bike equipment and its importance in injury reduction.

During this two-day event, the Bronze course – an introductory level education course – will instruct participants on the methods of working with a bicycling client.

Specific topics will include:

• Introduction to the bicycle
• Bicycling biomechanics
• Bicycle injuries
• Clinical evaluation of bicyclists and their equipment
• Setting up your clinic for the evaluation of bicyclists

The course will be led by Erik Moen, PT, the founder and director of Corpore Sano Physical Therapy and BikePT.

This is a 16-hour course that will take place on Friday, April 26, and conclude Saturday, April 27, with a bike ride around the Boston area.

Class will begin 8:00 a.m. on Friday and 9:00 a.m. on Saturday at 2 Constitution Plaza in the Charlestown Navy Yard.
