There is nothing like a good bike ride around the neighborhood or maybe even around the entire region? 

Have you been experiencing pain while riding? If so, it could be the result of one of the many common cycling injuries. At Em

power Physical Therapy  Warren MI, our goal is to help combat these injuries so we can get you back on your way.

Different Types of Cycling Injuries

  • Impact Injuries: This is one of the most common injuries resulting from cycling. Impact injuries can cause muscle strains which then follow overcompensation of surrounding muscles causing significant pain.
  • Back Pain: Back pain is another common symptom we see due to the curling of your spine from holding on to the handlebars. It creates tension and puts strain on your muscles, forming many problems in the back.
  • Knee Pain: The constant cycling motion of your legs causes a risk of knee pain by overcompensating muscles in that area.
  • Wrist, Arm, Hand, and Neck Pain: These can all be accompanied by bicycle riding due to the odd position the two-wheeler puts you in. 

How We Can Help

Here at Empower Physical Therapy  Warren MI, we strive to treat each and every one of these injuries with the help of our expert physical therapists. You will be evaluated and given a plan of action following your first appointment accustomed to you. The way we treat most injuries is by first stretching out your problem areas and warming up the muscles. Next, you will be guided into specific exercises to help build up muscles around your affected area. This helps to strengthen and stabilize the muscles surrounding the problem. After working out the tendons and joints, we will give you instructions to follow up on at home for the best chance at a quick and easy recovery.

We hope you think of us if you are experiencing any pain after cycling. We will make sure you walk out of our offices satisfied and comfortable by eliminating pain and regaining your strength so you can get back to doing what you love. Contact us today at Empower Physical Therapy Warren MI.
