Question: What are the most common problem tendencies for cyclists? Jay Dicharry: Cyclists can have problems in various joints. Knee pain is certainly the most prevalent, but we also see problems in cyclists in lower back, neck, shoulder hand and foot numbness can result as well. I think the key thing to realize is cycling is a pretty constrained environment. All the forces are much lower than other sports. We do them in a very repetitive motion over, over again and those slight small imbalances can actually magnify themselves quit often over 5, 10, 20 hours a week, even if it's commuting to work back and forth each day.
