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!

Testimonial by Amanda W.

Heather's unique physical therapy program literally changed my life! After years of struggling with vaginismus, a condition that made it impossible for me to have intercourse and very difficult to use tampons without pain, a gynecologist referred me to Heather. I was nervous for my first appointment, but Heather's professional and friendly demeanor put me at ease. She did a great job explaining each technique she was using to help my muscles relax. Heather uses a combination of internal and external stretches and exercises to relax the pelvic floor and build muscle strength. Her specially developed home program helped me quickly recover from an issue that seemed insurmountable before meeting Heather. She was optimistic about my progress and incredibly encouraging. Less than 6 months after my first session, I was able to have pain-free sex for the first time in my life! If you are suffering from vaginismus or any other pelvic floor issues, I highly recommend making an appointment with Heather and reading her book!

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 R.D., age 38

"I had a severe tear during childbirth that was not stitched together correctly and therefore healed poorly. Even after having a surgery a year later to remove the scar tissue, I was still having pain, and no one could explain why -- there was no overt 'reason' to explain the pain. I had tried other 'specialists' and even saw another physical therapist who had me do hip / leg stretches -- what a joke! I was about to give up and just 'live with it' until thankfully I kept searching online and found Heather.

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 Jackie W.

I was in multiple car accidents a decade ago, and I have been to many physical therapists through the years without success. They found the root of my lower back pain problems and after nearly a decade of barely being able to walk I finally can again without pain. They are also the best pelvic floor pts and the only ones who found the connection between my pelvic floor and lower back problems. If you need help with physical pain, they are your answer.
