Been on your bike more lately?? Yeah, us too!
And you’re not the only one out there who is having neck pain or stiffness after increasing time on the bike!
1. The first thing that might help - a good bike fit! Making sure your position on the bike is correct for your body can be a big help in both making you more comfortable and more efficient.
Check out our friends at Victory Bicycle Studio - They are awesome to work with and can make sure that your bike fits your body in the best way possible.
2. After you make sure the fit on your bike is correct, work on your posture!
Spending a long time in one position can be a challenge. Especially if we spend the other 8-10 hours out of the day hunched forward like this:
Consistent movement and position changes are necessary to stay mobile and avoid pain, so when you don't have that option ON the bike, make sure you spend time working on keeping your neck and upper back moving when you're OFF the bike.
Try these exercises to improve mobility and increase neck and upper back endurance so you can stay comfortable on your bike longer!
If neck or upper back stiffness and pain is something that you've dealt with for a while or that's really affecting your ability to enjoy being active, we can help.
We'll spend a full hour giving you a custom assessment to uncover the underlying root causes of what's going on. You'll leave with all of your questions answered and the confidence that you have an expert in your corner and a strategic plan to get and stay pain-free.
