It's not the tri bike per se, but the position that probably causes the problems. Most tri bikes are set up with the rider positioned more forward than is typical on a road frame. This has aero advantages for the time trial style tri events, but comes at a cost.
However, you'll note that i said "probably". That's because thousands of tri riders don't have problems with the position, so there's more to it than that. In any case, nothing succeeds like success and the fact that however he did it, the fitter solved a problem for you and that's all that matters.
