Championing Cyclist Well-being: Safety, Health, and Peak Performance

Welcome to MedInMotion, Austin’s go-to destination for cycling injury treatment and support, where we are committed to ensuring the safety and optimal performance of cyclists of all ages. Austin, with its scenic routes and thriving biking community, offers a unique cycling experience. However, the joy of cycling also comes with potential risks, and we are here to help you navigate them.

Common Cycling Injuries and Our Expert Treatments

Cycling is a fantastic way to stay active and enjoy the outdoors, but it can also lead to specific injuries if proper care is not taken. Here at MedInMotion, we specialize in treating a range of cycling-related injuries, ensuring that you receive the specialized care you need.

1. Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITB)

The ITB is a band of tissue that runs along the outside of the thigh, and overuse can lead to irritation and pain. Our treatment focuses on relieving inflammation, improving flexibility, and strengthening the surrounding muscles to prevent future issues.

2. Anterior Knee Pain

This common cycling injury can be caused by various factors, including improper bike setup or muscle imbalances. Our approach includes a thorough assessment of your biking ergonomics, targeted physical therapy, and strength training to alleviate pain and enhance knee stability.

3. Low Back Pain

Long hours on the bike can strain the lower back. We provide treatments that focus on improving posture, strengthening core muscles, and enhancing flexibility to relieve pain and prevent recurrence.

4. Head Injury

Safety is paramount, and head injuries require immediate attention. While prevention is key, our team is equipped to provide post-injury support and rehabilitation to ensure a safe and full recovery.

5. Clavicle Fracture

Commonly caused by falls, a fractured clavicle can be painful and debilitating. Our treatment plans are designed to promote healing, reduce pain, and regain strength and mobility in the affected area.

6. Wrist Fracture

The wrist is vulnerable in cycling falls. We offer comprehensive treatment, including immobilization, physical therapy, and strength training, to ensure a swift and complete recovery. 

Ensuring a Safe and Enjoyable Cycling Experience

Bike Fitting and Maintenance

A bike that fits well not only enhances performance but also reduces the risk of injury. Ensure there is adequate clearance between you and the top tube of your bike, and pay attention to the size and positioning of your saddle and handlebars. Regular maintenance checks are also vital to ensure everything is in working order.

Strength and Conditioning

To further prevent injuries, we recommend incorporating strength and conditioning exercises into your routine, focusing on the hips, thighs, and calves. Our Cycling Performance program is designed to enhance your strength and resilience, ensuring you can enjoy cycling to its fullest.

Safety First: Tips and Rules

Safety should always be a top priority. We advocate for riding with traffic, obeying all road signals, and using proper hand signals. Reflective materials on your clothing and accessories, as well as lights and reflectors on your bike, are essential, especially in low-visibility conditions.
