Back aches making it difficult to cycle for long distances?
Does your back ache when you cycle?
At least 80% of the population experience back pain at one point in their lives. This is more prevalent among cyclists due to the hunching position that the body is being forced into for a prolonged period of time. If your core muscles are not strong enough to support your body being in this position, your back ends up taking the bulk of the load, often resulting in a strain.
There is no necessity to live with back pain
In most cases, back pain does not go away in time. Instead, if left untreated, the pain tends to worsen due to the repetition of the action causing the pain. Back pain can make it difficult not only to enjoy cycling, but also completing simple day to day activities such as bending over to lift items and sitting comfortably at your desk at work. However, despite the inconvenience and the toll that back pain takes on physical and mental health, many choose to leave their aching backs uncared for.
