In the summer we often switch to cycling because it is healthier. But are you sure? After all, it is not difficult to have an accident, especially when it is busy on the bicycle routes. Bravado dominates. On the other hand, too much relaxation is not conducive to concentration. It’s okay if you eventually shake your knees, but we’re not always so lucky, explains the sports orthopedist, listing the most common cycling injuries.

Cycling doesn’t always mean health

Any sport can be viewed through the prism of injuries most commonly encountered in practice. Even a less professional approach to them doesn’t guarantee we’ll miss them. When we get on a bicycle, we are more exposed to specific injuries. In childhood, scabs on the knees were such a feature of young cyclists. Good that it stops there. Unfortunately, we are not always so lucky.

The rest of the article below the video.

– As soon as spring or summer kicks in, when people start riding bicycles, we see a huge increase in the number of injuries typical of a bicycle fall, such as collarbone fractures, damage to the shoulder-clavicular joint, fractures of the radial head and fractures around the wrist – lists sports orthopedist Krzesimir Sieczych, orthopedist at Carolina Medical Center.

He adds that it’s not uncommon for such an injury to end in surgery.

Typical injuries of cyclists

The consequence of injuries is not only plaster, but also rehabilitation to achieve full fitness. It often takes longer than just immobilization. Fortunately, as the medic emphasizes, in most cases it is possible to regain full fitness.

However, many patients, unfortunately after this type of injury, complain that with changes in pressure, weather or humidity they feel pain in the places where the injury occurred – he sums up.

Do you suspect a sprain, fracture? Do you suffer from back pain? Do not wait. He will make an appointment with an orthopedist available on Medonet Market. Realization possible within 48 hours.
