Common Cycling Injuries

If you are a seasoned cyclist or just someone who just enjoys cycling to work, it doesn’t matter, there will be something of value in this blog for you.

The blog explains some of the most common muscle and joint injuries associated with cycling. Especially the type of injuries that aren’t related to crashes, collisions or falls. It will outline what to do when you have an injury, it will explain when you need to seek help, and it will help you with injury prevention.

There are potentially many different causes of injury.  It can be down to lack of experience or environmental hazards; it can also be down to rider errors, lack of self-care, overuse, or inadequate equipment.

Cyclist and osteopathy

Cyclists, a lot of people use cycling as a means of exercise and not just a means of transport.

  • There are approximately 1.5 million cyclists over the age of 18 in Great Britain who cycle every day or nearly every day.
  • In 2014, 183,423 employees took part in the Government’s ‘Cycle to Work Scheme’. That was a new record.
  • According to the National Travel Survey, about 7% of the population aged 5+ cycled three or more times a week in 2016.
  • (Facts and figures from We Are Cycling UK)
  • This blog is going to discuss and address how osteopathy could help with cyclist injuries and performance. But first, let’s discuss how and why cyclists get injured:

Shoulder Injuries

Shoulder injuries are common and mostly caused by athletic activities that involve excessive, repetitive, overhead motion, such as swimming, tennis, pitching, and weightlifting. However, they can also occur due to everyday activities such gardening and hanging curtains.

How do you know you have shoulder injuries? The most obvious sign is pain. Just like any other injury, if you are experiencing pain in shoulder you should consider the fact that you may have a shoulder injury. While pain can be a hallmark of shoulder injury, there are instances where injury is present without pain, particularly in chronic cases. Other signs and symptoms of shoulder injury include, but not limited to:

  • Stiffness. Is your shoulder stiff? Can you rotate your arm in all the normal positions?
  • Laxity. Does it feel like your shoulder could pop out or slide out of the socket?
  • Weakness. Do you lack the strength in your shoulder to carry out your daily activities?
  • Persistent tingling or numbness in your upper limb

Is Mindfulness worth it?

By | Stress Relief | No Comments

How might mindfulness help?

The theory is that by focusing fully on the present moment, that mindfulness can help to distract you from your negative thoughts.

And let’s face it, for the majority of us, there is a little chattering voice that runs in the background for most of our days. A voice that we could do with quieting from time to time.

But how useful is it? Does it really work? And if so, what can it really be used to help with?

We take a quick look.

Day to day stress and anxiety

For the sake of this short blog I want to keep the definitions of stress and anxiety simple. In no way are we looking to explore exaggerated psychological states.

Stress can be broadly described as the mental, emotional or physical strain resulting from an inability to cope with demands placed on us.

Anxiety is worry that is focused on an uncertain outcome.

Here is a quick guide to help you deal with those underlying tensions that can affect you day to day. Tensions that left unresolved can have farther reaching consequences that undermine our daily lives.

Here are our tips on easy ways to relieve stress and anxiety.
