Young Athletes Academy Cycling Program

Improved bike fit and form, safer and more effective training, and stronger muscles and bones can all make a big impact on a cyclist’s performance. The Young Athletes Academy Cycling Program helps young cyclists reach their full potential. The program was designed by experts in pediatric sports medicine and developed to empower young athletes.

The Young Athletes Academy Cycling Program includes:

  • A one-on-one consultation with Emily Kraus, MD, a pediatric sports medicine physician with a passion for cycling medicine. Dr. Kraus will review each cyclist’s past injuries, medical history and training schedule, and conduct a full physical exam. The appointment will also include a goal-setting discussion. Additional lab work, imaging or a bone health assessment may be included if needed.
  • An evaluation with a physical therapist (PT) who has experience working with young cyclists. The PT will evaluate strength and movement patterns to identify areas that may be dragging down performance or increasing injury risk. If needed, follow-up visits with a PT or athletic trainer are available to continue the progress of the first session.
  • A bike fit and motion exam in our Motion and Sports Performance Laboratory. We outfit each cyclist with sensors designed to measure the angle of each joint while riding and use that data to make personalized suggestions about bike fit and riding stance to improve performance and reduce injury risk.

Nutrition consultation with a sports dietitian is also available.

The program is available at our Sunnyvale clinic, located at 1195 West Fremont Avenue.

We offer the option of paying for this service via insurance, for example, when an athlete is trying to return to cycling after an injury or with a flat fee of $495. Please call your insurance provider for information on reimbursement.

To make an appointment, please call (844) 41-ORTHO.
