Common cycling injuries or problems include:
Cycling injuries may be caused by numerous factors, including trauma, overuse, and faulty biomechanics. The parts of your body that contact your bicycle—hands, feet, groin—are among the most common locations for pain in cyclists, although problems can manifest in any joint or tissue that is exposed to excessive or repetitive forces. Chiropractic care is most well-known for its ability to treat joint pain associated with these injuries, but many chiropractors, including Dr. Hosmer and Dr. DeVasto, also use proven manual therapies to address your soft tissue injuries. Dr. Hosmer offers medical bike fitting services, as well, to help minimize or eliminate any unnecessary strain you may experience when riding your bicycle.
