Good for: Cyclists, Triathletes, Mountain Bikers
Ride Right combines video analysis with our expertise in body movement to uncover cycling form flaws that lead to power leaks and injuries so you can OUT.RIDE the competition.
What to Expect
Ride Right takes the rider into consideration, uncovering the secrets of your specific anatomy and how that’s influencing your position and performance on the bike. Ride Right includes an 80-minute session and 20-minute follow-up session.
The initial 80-minute session is made up of two main components:
- Musculoskeletal evaluation by a doctor of physical therapy (both on and off your bike) to pinpoint any potential problems, such as chronic injuries, current pain, and strength/flexibility inequalities and limitations
- Video analysis of you riding your bike
Based on our findings, specific mechanical and postural corrections will be discussed and changed. By adjusting your positions and mechanics, the likelihood of injury will be reduced and your performance will improve. Our physical therapist will create an individualized exercise program so you can continue to improve after your session ends. You’ll leave with a greater understanding of your body, how it correlates with chronic injuries, current pain and flexibility limitations, and how to avoid all three.
Bring your bike, we have the trainer.
Your 20-minute. follow-up session will be scheduled about one month after your initial session so you have time to ride with the corrections and recommendations you received in your initial session. This session gives you the opportunity to tell the PT what worked, what didn’t, and make a continued care plan to keep you riding pain-free for a long time.
Ride Right vs. Bike Fit – What’s the difference?
A bike fit is a process that changes the bike parameters (seat height, handlebar position, stem length) to create an ideal ergonomic position for the cyclist on the bike.
A Ride Right focuses on the rider and how they integrate with the bike. The rider gains knowledge of their body as it pertains to cycling and their position on the bike (e.g, learning how your hamstring length correlates with your back pain when you pedal).
We work closely with local bike shops for traditional bike fits; if we think you need one, we’ll be more than happy to give you a great recommendation!

The impact Rausch has made on my knee health over the past year has genuinely been a game changer. Kevin C has not only helped me through multiple injuries, but he always answers all my annoying questions with equally annoying enthusiasm. You go Kevin, thanks for all you do!
Really love this office. I drive by at least 10 other physical therapy offices.
They do a great job! I especially recommend Kenneday (a pt aide). She is WAY more than an “aide”. She does a great job keeping an eye on her patients to ensure they are doing all of their exercises correctly and that they remember all of the exercises.
She is a great part of my recovery and extremely professional and a nice person too!
Recommend this place for your pt needs.
This is the best most thorough physical therapy I have ever been to and there’s been a few. Ruth is my physical therapist and she makes you feel comfortable and is very knowledgeable and good at her job. In 5 months I am almost all healed from my L4L5 fusion back surgery. Everyone there is so nice and helpful.
Just had the most amazing massage from Melissa! I’ve been experiencing neck pain and stiffness for several months and none of the massage therapists I’ve worked with at other massage clinics have been able to get the knots out. Well Melissa did and I feel like I have a new neck! Thank you for your help!
I highly recommend Renee as a massage therapist. She understands health in all totality both body and mind. She knows and supplies a great massage each time and fosters a feeling of trust and safety. Beautiful hearted as well as talented employee. Great facility.
The best PTs. The best gym. The best people come here to get better. I get better when I follow the rules and do what she says. When I don’t, I get hurt again. It’s the way it goes I guess. I highly recommend this place to anyone who needs some PT.
I’ve been receiving physical therapy for a month now on my (once frozen) shoulder and have enjoyed every minute of it. The staff is superb and the prescribed regimens are extremely effective. My go to PT is Rebecca. She is the bomb– amazing talent, great personality, & genuinely caring. Her assistant, Christina is also fantastic. After a few visits, I’ve progressed tremendously and now have full motion in my shoulder. Am so grateful to the Rausch team…highly recommend!
I went from waking up every morning in excruciating shoulder pain after hurting myself weight lifting. Thanks to Jonathan – I’m glad to say that I’m able to live a pain-free life and do the activities I love. I can’t thank Jonathan and the rest of the team enough – their knowledge, compassion, and enthusiasm really put them over the top. After multiple visits to orthopedic physicians, multiple scans, and other physical therapists, I was scared I was going to be left to live a life with one shoulder and lots of pain. Again, I can’t thank the team here enough. Thank you!
Rausch Physical Therapy was highly recommended to me by my long time physical therapist in Ventura County. I began care with Jonathan at the Rausch Laguna Nigel location and now see him at their Dana Point studio. Happily, I can report I have found the care at Rausch to be superior and highly recommend Jonathan for his expertise and caring. I have chronic muscle weakness due to my MS but after each session I walk out feeling stronger. Even with Covid protocols in place, I continue to feel comfortable receiving care at Rausch.
I came in about 2 and a half weeks before I was supposed to run my first marathon with pain in my quad. I was so nervous I wasn’t going to be able to run my race. My PT was Diana Wang. She came up with a plan to get me ready for my race. I appreciated her expertise, follow-up, and commitment to helping me reach my goal. Because of her and Rausch PT I was able to run my first marathon with no injury!
