Bike week is an annual event and in 2016 there is special focus on bikes at work. Many are set challenges as to which are the quickest routes and work people take on challenges to get themselves fit again.
Bike week can be exciting however, people need to make sure they are fit enough to take on any new challenges. We regularly see patients at the clinic who are keen bikers, often seen for either injuries, pulled muscles or accidents or overuse injuries. A quite common injury is to the knee. Excessive use can put a strain on cartilage and the meniscus. Here at our extremely busy clinic we have an extremely good physio Rob Jackson. Rob has been working for many years with sports enthusiasts, both professional and non-professional. If you have any kind of knee pain it is a good idea to seek help as soon as possible.
If there is someone with either shoulder pain or neck pain we suggest booking an appointment with Richard Lehane or our chiropractor Dr. Tomer Gilboa who is the top of his field regarding neck injuries. To help you on your way Sarah Spearing our sports massage therapist is at hand.
We say is prevention is better than cure, and regular sports massage may help prevent injuries for any sport.
