Cycling & Chiropractic
The team at Chiro.London have been looking after cyclists of all levels for years, watch the below video to see us working with one of the amateur cycle racing teams – explaining why athletes at the top of their game find benefit to their performance or to simply deal with a pain or niggle while cycling.
We know the demands cycling places on your body and have treatment and strategies to be able to help you ride more comfortably.
However it’s not just about back pain, its about allowing your body to: Perform well while riding – optimal bike positioning and flexibility and optimal nerve function to allow the muscles to be at their most powerful, balance – leg length issues, tightness of the hip flexors or low back – all lead to uneven power being generated and
recover well after riding/training – pelvic twisting puts uneven tension in the leg muscles making your body tense and tight before you even start riding let along once you’ve finished four hours in the saddle and attempt to recover for work the next day.
Good enough for the pros…
Many of us are cyclists ourselves and we understand that low back pain, neck pain, knee pain, referred pain into the hands/wrists are common place. It doesn’t need to be like this..
We will check your health history, and perform an examination to include assessment of general flexibility, neurological function, spinal alignment including any leg length discrepancy or hidden spinal wear and tear both which may affect you position while riding a bike. We’ll then start a bespoke program of specific chiropractic adjustments to help unlock any blockages in your spine, hips or knees to help you regain comfort, enjoyment or improved performance while cycling.
