Cycling involves many hours in the saddle in quite an unnatural posture for your body, therefore it is important to have the mechanics of the body in proper alignment to not only prevent joint pain and premature wear and tear, but to allow more flexibility, less muscle tension to maximise its power.
What do you feel?
Usually function begins to deteriorate in the form of weakness, fatigue, awkwardness of motion before other symptoms like pain, swelling, pins and needles, numbness present when the body struggles to perform efficiently. The most common sights for pain are in the back, neck, hips, and knees and various muscles throughout the body.
What to do?
The practitioners at Chidi Lynn Proactive have helped many cyclists from injuries such as ITB strain, hip pain or grip weakness to better joint and muscle motion enabling strength, power and comfort whilst cycling and optimising performance. If your body is not performing how you would like, it is worth having a consult with us to establish the cause. If your pain is beyond our scope of practice, you will be referred and advised accordingly for the appropriate therapy/investigations.
If it is within our scope, we can work with you to help restore your body to its natural mechanics and relieve the tightness enabling the body to self-heal and regulate; as well as discuss the best way to prevent re-occurrence.
What would it be like to be pain free, functioning and enjoying ‘normal’ again?
