The Cycling season is here; how to avoid a sore neck

We see lots of cyclist in the clinic who complain of a sore neck. Many cyclists believe it’s just part of getting on your bike for a long ride. But there is always a reason why you get neck pain or any other aches and pains whilst doing sport or an activity. Most likely this is because of the way you perform the activity. You can end up putting stress on the particular area or tissues. When you come in to see us in the clinic as a cyclist with pain I will always ask for a video of you cycling, taken from behind and the side, so that I can analyse your position and movement. Then we also address any other contributing factors (in the video below you can see a case study where the cyclist also has a stiff low back)
