Rider History Interview and 16-Point Physical Assessment
The rider to the right had a pretty significant valgus knee alignment (tracking inside the pedal line - the most common alignment). During the initial assessment, she also presented with a structural leg length difference (LLD) - her right femor is longer than her left - and a functional LL (a pelvic rotation). This caused the alignment to of her one side to be less optimal than the other. By adjusting her cleat position to compensate for her longer femor, and then giving her feet the support they needed inside the shoe (they needed different amounts in each shoe) we acheived a much more productive alignment that will not only hopefully improve her power on the bike but also prevent foot knee, hip and back issues in the future.
