Bicycle accidents have become increasingly common, especially throughout many cities in Texas. Biking is popular, both as a means of travel and for recreational purposes. However, every time you get on your bike, you are putting yourself at risk of being involved in an accident. Cycling accidents can lead to everything from minor scrapes to severe injuries, both of which can be the result of a little fall or a serious collision with a car. At Premier Injury Clinics of DFW, we see many different types of injuries related to cycling. Some of the most common injuries include neck, lower back, shoulder, elbow, knee, ankle/foot injuries. While trauma is often behind these types of injuries, many are related to overuse. Whether you are an avid or occasional cycler, you may be at risk of injury.
Leisure, amateur, and serious cyclists alike must be very careful whenever they make the decision to get on their bike. Regardless of how experienced you are, biking is not without risk of injury. We treat people at all of our DFW clinics for biking injuries, whether it be from a fall, overused muscles and joints, or improper posture and balance. We always have two chiropractors on staff, offer extended hours Monday through Saturday, and provide complimentary transportation. Your health and wellness is important to us, which is just one of the reasons why we believe in taking a goal-oriented approach to your healing. We rely on cutting-edge treatments and rehabilitation techniques for all types of injuries that happen as a result of a cycling accident. If you are an avid cyclist, you will likely face physical stresses that take a toll on your muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves.
Chiropractic Care for Cycling Injuries
Chiropractic care can provide excellent benefits for the cyclist, especially in the event of an accident. Some of the ways we have used chiropractic care to treat cyclists at our five clinics include providing:
- Pain relief
- Faster healing from common injuries
- Improved range of motion
- Enriched cycling biomechanics
- Better muscle tone
- Improved balance
There is an inherent risk that injuries will occur from cycling, especially with the high volume of cars and trucks on the Texas roadways. In the event you are involved in an accident with another cyclist, pedestrian, or motor vehicle, please contact Premier Injury Clinics of DFW. Not only can these dangerous collisions lead to serious, potentially long-term injuries, but cycling can result in injury to the ligaments, muscles, knees, ankles, hips, hands, wrists, feet, neck, back, and shoulders. Making an appointment with a skilled chiropractor is proven to be very effective in treating pain and speeding up the healing process.
