How Can a Chiropractor Help You Deal With Cycling Injuries

 

 

 

When you perform high intensity physical activities, there’s always a risk of injury. Whether you like to run, perform martial arts, dance, or cycle, there’s always a chance that you might fall, slip, twist a muscle, or strain a ligament, etc. While these injuries are almost inevitable and you can’t easily control them, you can influence your healing process and how long your body takes to recover. At Family Chiropractic & Wellness, we believe that regular chiropractic treatments can help you deal with cycling and other sports related injuries.

 

 

 

Common Cyclist Injuries

Injuries don’t just happen because of a slip or crash; they can also happen because you overused a muscle or ride the cycle with bad posture. Some of the most common problem areas for cyclists are:

  • Ankles
  • Back
  • Feet
  • Hands
  • Hips
  • Knees
  • Ligaments
  • Muscles
  • Neck
  • Shoulders
  • Wrists

When you cycle, you place considerable amount of pressure and strain on all these parts of your anatomy. If you stretch well, maintain good posture, and take great care of your body after you exercise, these parts will remain relatively healthy. If you don’t take care of your body, these areas can develop permanent problems that can’t be easily corrected.

How Will A Chiropractor Help?

A chiropractor can help you in many different ways, especially if you consult them regularly. Their first priority will be to help you avoid injury in the first place. They’ll recommend adjustments to your posture, warm-up and cool-down routines, and proper nutrition to help you handle the strain. They’ll also:

  • Perform adjustments to address sore and stressed areas on your body.
  • Help keep the joints flexible and ensure you have full range of motion.
  • Perform massages to soothe the strained muscles.
