Injured Cycling?

As Tour de France fever grips the country, club cyclists and enthusiastic amateurs will be motivated to get on their bikes.

ISIS Chiropractic Cycling Injuries

Cycling is a great form of exercise for all ages helping to get you fit, reduce your risk of heart disease and high blood pressure, reduce cholesterol and due to the massive endorphin release it can help lift your mood.

Due to the low impact on joints it is less likely to lead to sprains and strains than other exercise alternatives like running.

But that doesn't mean that injuries do not occur, even at amateur level.

Read on to find out how Chiropractic can help you with both recovery and prevention of cycling injuries.

Tips to Prevent Injuries

  • When it is wet, do not cycle too fast in the bends. A fall can spoil your season and your plan to get fit.
  • Your bike should be properly serviced, the correct size, appropriate style for your needs, and adjusted to fit your body, as having the saddle, pedals and handlebars in the wrong position will put increased pressure on the joints, muscles and tendons.
  • Wear appropriate clothing (including a helmet) and carry snacks and drinks if cycling for more than an hour to avoid dehydration and fatigue that could lead to muscle strains.
  • Warm up with some gentle stretches of the lower back and shoulders and start off cycling slowly to allow legs to warm up.
  • Set realistic goals and plan an appropriate route for your capabilities.

Common Cycling Injuries

Common cycling injuries include neck pain, knee pain, hip pain, back pain and foot 

However, knee injuries, including patellofemoral pain syndrome, iliotibial band syndrome and ligament sprains are the most common cycling injuries mainly due to overuse or falls but also related to dysfunction of surrounding joints.

Chiropractic Treatment Can Help You Recover

Chiropractic treatment can help you recover quicker from an injury!

Treatment by chiropractors may involve manipulation or ‘adjustments’ to
 the affected area and also surrounding joints to increase movement and restore normal function, along with soft tissue therapy, laser therapy and dry needling techniques.

Home exercises are also commonly advised. Your core stability is really important even in cycling!

If you feel pain during or after cycling, don’t ignore it!

The longer you leave an injury or pain the longer it takes to correct and treat it!

We hope that this information helps you stay injury-free and helps you continue to enjoy your cycling. Happy cycling!
