Chiropractic Care for the Cycling Enthusiast

By Donna Stark

You used to love pulling your bike out of the garage and hitting the road, but lately, your neck has had a thing or two to say about that, hasn't it? And it's no surprise either, as neck pain is one of the most common complaints made by cyclists. The bad news is that if you want to ride a bike, you have to maintain a fixed position for an extended period of time and that fixed position can place great demands on your spine and neck. But the good news is that there are some steps you can take to silence the pain coming from your neck. The first one starts with chiropractic care at The Joint Chiropractic.

Chiropractic Care for the Cycling Enthusiast

Neck pain is one of the top reasons people head on in to see their local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic. Take a look at how chiropractic care can help you get back on the road, pain-free.

  • Encourages proper alignment of the body
  • Loosens joints and eases muscle tension
  • Alleviates pain caused by pinched nerves
  • Reduces the risk of muscle spasms

Additional Precautions

In addition to chiropractic adjustments, there are some things you can do on your own to avoid a stiff and painful neck while riding your bike. Here are some suggestions.

  • Form - Make sure you are riding your bike with the proper form. Keep your chest slightly lifted, pull your shoulder blades back and down toward your spine, and keep your head in a neutral position. Take breaks to stretch your neck every now and then.
  • Helmet - It's always important to make sure your helmet is the right size and properly fitted. You don't want to be forced to hold your head and neck in an awkward position because the helmet is sliding off to one side or the other.
  • Bike - Just as important as your helmet, it is vital to have the proper-sized bike too! Make sure the seat, handlebars, and pedals are adjusted to fit your body type and riding style. Doing so will help encourage proper posture and form while on the road.
