Cycling injuries are an unfortunate part of most rider’s relationship with their bike. Some people are more prone than others, but most cyclists will find themselves unable to cycle due to injury at some stage. While impact injuries are the cause of the pain for some, more often than not it is overuse injuries as a result of the repetitive nature of the pursuit that are more common. Minor injuries can be treated at home with rest and taking a break from the saddle, but more serious and reoccurring injuries simply need to be seen to by an experienced professional. The increasing popularity of the sport has seen an increase in injuries but it must be remembered that whether you are a novice cyclist or someone who takes the pursuit more seriously, it is important to make sure that you prepare properly when cycling, from proper posture, to making sure your bike is the right fit.
Rather than ignore the first signs of a developing injury, it is recommended to visit a physiotherapist if you are experiencing any pain. Here at Ballsbridge Physiotherapy Clinic, we have a team of chartered physiotherapists to assist you if you have suffered a cycling related injury. Our sports specialists Dave and Olive are trained in treating a wide range of sports related injuries and in addition can offer assessments such as functional training to evaluate your training concerns.
