CYCLING INJURIES

Cycling injuries can be intrinsic (over-use) or extrinsic (due to trauma).

AVASCULAR NECROSIS

Avascular necrosis can cause hip pain. It is a condition that occurs due to disruption in the blood supply to bone, causing the bone to die. The areas affected are usually the ends of the long bone. For example, the hip and the knee.

HIP & KNEE ARTHRITIS

Arthritis occurs due to degeneration of the articular cartilage that lines the joint surface. If untreated, hip or knee arthritis can become progressively painful and stiff.

OSTEOPOROSIS

Osteoporosis can result in ‘in-sufficiency’ fractures. It may be appropriate to investigate and treat osteoporosis to reduce your risk of fractures. The NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence) provides guidance here.
