Lower extremity and spine pain in cyclists.

Abstract The number of cyclists increases each year. Some people treat cycling as a passion and practice it at every possible occasion, while for others it is a mean of transport or a form of relaxation at the weekend. However, very few people realize that cycling can also have a negative impact on their health.

AB  - INTRODUCTION: The number of cyclists increases each year. Some people treat
      cycling as a passion and practice it at every possible occasion, while for others
      it is a mean of transport or a form of relaxation at the weekend. However, very
      few people realize that cycling can also have a negative impact on their health. 
      OBJECTIVE: To assess the prevalence of lower extremity and spine pain in
      cyclists, and evaluate the influence of various factors causing it. MATERIAL AND 
      METHODS: The study was performed on 167 subjects during amateur cycling
      competitions in the Greater Poland and Kuyavian-Pomeranian Provinces. A specially
      prepared questionnaire was used in the study. The questions related to the pain
      caused by cycling, the character and the localization of the pain, and the
      presence of warm-up and stretching. RESULTS: Knee pain was reported in 40% of the
      study subjects (mostly anterior pain - 26%). Spine pain was reported in 41% of
      the studied athletes, where 26% was related with the lumbar spine. Variables,
      such as age, weight, age, BMI, training experience and number of hours devoted to
      training per week had no influence on the incidence and the localization of leg
      pain, but it had influence in the case of spine pain. Stretching after cycling
      was the factor which significantly distinguished the studied groups with regard
      to the incidence of knee pain. CONCLUSIONS: The most common type of leg pain was 
      knee pain (anterior knee pain) whereas spine pain was most commonly reported in
      the lumbar spine. Statistical analysis showed that spine pain is more often
      reported by people who are older, have higher weight, and people who spend more
      time training per week. Warm-up and stretching after cycling are recommended to
      cyclists who experience pain.
