Patient Testimonials

Amy R

Functional Bike-Fit

I have a Salsa Fargo drop-bar MTB that I use for bikepacking and gravel riding. Long days in the saddle were aggravating my neck and shoulders. Burke was able to assess the need for a shorter stem and also made sure that my seat was in the right place for the proper reach of my upper body. I also had some knee irritation and he was able to address my leg length difference. Because he is a physical therapist, he knows exactly how my joints will respond with even the smallest adjustments. The tools are simple but super effective. My bike is so comfortable now, I’m ready for adventure!

Praise for Burke and Focus

I loved that appointments were a full hour one on one with the therapist. That is extremely rare to come by these days but shows how much quality patient care is top priority.
