spin the right way

Spin The Right Way for Optimal Results!

Want to start a spin class? Afraid of returning to cycling because of knee pain or pelvic pain? Come see Heather Jeffcoat, DPT, or another therapist for an assessment of your form.

We love biking at Fusion Wellness & Physical Therapy / Femina PT! We have a Peloton bicycle used to evaluate, modify and progress spinning and cycling routines. Our clinic director/owner Heather Jeffcoat, DPT, is our in-house spinning guru. She is here to help you with your form to spin the right way, as well as how to fit the bike properly to your body.

Custom Fitting with a Certified Therapist

Heather does custom fit assessments in her Sherman Oaks office and in the greater Los Angeles area. Having your bike at the incorrect seat height, seat and handlebar position can exacerbate or even cause nerve problems.

In addition to proper set up and modifications, we also evaluate your posture as you are spinning, and how this may change over time. Compensations in body alignment will lead to pain and stiffness immediately, or over time. We can point out these irregularities in movement and make sure to keep you spinning for a long time.

Custom Spin Programs for Different Bodies

Heather deeply understands the mechanics of the body and has worked with a variety of cyclists, including:

  • Postpartum women
  • Pelvic pain
  • Nerve pain
  • Bladder and bladder issues
  • Orthopedic issues such as lower back, knee and hip pain

Her goal is to understand what your body needs and to help you modify your cycling program – to keep you riding and out of pain.

Consult with a Therapist Today

Bike fit and form consultations are 30 minutes for $100 and are considered wellness services only and cannot be run through your physical therapy insurance benefits.

Please note that the Peloton fit service is currently only available in our Sherman Oaks location. In-home consultations to get you to spin the right way can be arranged for an additional fee, and are dependent on location from our Sherman Oaks, Beverly Hills and Montrose offices. If you would like to come in for a physical therapy assessment, these can be arranged by calling any of our offices. Contact us today!

Heather is the best! I saw her today for terrible hip/groin pain. I was so impressed with the safety measures in place and felt completely safe . Thanks for the healing hands.

Testimonial by Carolina J.

I had tried Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy before (with another PT) and I had a really bad (painful) experience. A friend of mine and fellow patient, told me about Heather, Laureen and Femina PT (née Fusion Wellness & Physical Therapy) and I decided to try again. I am so happy I did! Femina PT have, literally, changed my life. I was able to do again things I couldn't do for over 10 years!! Their bedside manners are impeccable, their knowledge and understanding make me feel comfortable to recommend this place to anyone in pain. Specially if you have Endometriosis. 100% recommended!!

Testimonial by P.M.

I was hopeful but frankly skeptical when the doctor treating me for Interstitial Cystitis recommended that I go to Heather for physical therapy. Medication and diet helped control my IC symptoms, but I had never heard of physical therapy being used to treat IC. The education and treatment I received from Heather was a revelation. She explained that the pain I experienced with IC had helped create a cycle of muscle guarding which affected the entire pelvic area. I had no idea of the amount of tension being held there. No wonder my husband and I had not been able to have sexual intercourse for years!

Testimonial by Rosanna R., age 35

Heather has affected my life in the MOST POSITIVE way and I am forever grateful. My husband refers to her as the "sex doctor" so you can only imagine how happy he is with my therapy outcome.

After the birth of my son I suffered from "Vaginismus", however, at the time I just thought I was broken. My "broken vagina" affected me physically but it was an emotional struggle as well. Many women in my life also suffered with pain from sex after their babies were born so I knew I wasn't alone. They told me they "just got used to it" but I couldn't see myself living that way.

Sex wasn't just painful, it was literally impossible - IT DIDNT FIT!

Testimonial by M.M.

My husband and I were married for 5 years and unable to have intercourse, but I never knew why. After numerous awful experiences at doctor’s offices (where many doctors told me I “just needed to relax”), a surgery that didn’t fix the problem, and a year of owning dilators that didn’t get me anywhere, someone finally referred me to Heather for Physical Therapy. I finally had answers and information from someone who knew exactly what I was dealing with!

Testimonial by A.W., age 32

I wanted to let you know that my pelvic floor held strong and gave me no trouble whatsoever in my trail race this morning (12 miles)! In a way, I felt like I ran better than ever because my core feels so rock solid from all the exercises you have me doing. That was especially valuable on the technical downhill - I just flew down the trail because I had confidence in my balance and form. Thank you for helping me get back to doing what I love.
