Cycling Injuries

CYCLING INJURIES

Cyclists are amongst the most dedicated athletes around. Indeed, cyclists are often out on their bikes before dawn and devote many hours to training every week. As a result, cycling injuries are inevitable. The temptation may be to continue riding. However, cycling through an injury often makes it worse. As a result, this can take the fun away from cycling.

Rest may help to alleviate the injury. However, in many cases that is not enough. In these circumstances, cyclists need to see a specialist who understands them, who knows what they are sacrificing and what they are putting their bodies through. Perhaps most importantly, they need advice from a specialist who knows what they need to do to recover.

Some statistics

Did you know that a third of road cyclists experience knee joint pain? In contrast, according to a recent research study in the American Journal of Sports Medicine, the occurrence of low back pain in road cyclists exceeds 50%. At The Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy we will work with you to develop your strength, flexibility and endurance. In addition, we will help to minimise your risk of picking up cycling injuries in the future.

Common cycling injuries

Common cycling injuries include:

  • Anterior knee pain
  • Iliotibial band friction syndrome
  • Hip pain
  • Low back pain
  • Neck pain
  • Shoulder problems
