Biking and Back Pain

mountainbike_couplel-300x199Those who suffer from lower back pain may feel as though exercise will only worsen their condition, but by carefully choosing an appropriate exercise, individuals with back pain can stay healthy without the risk of further injury. Biking is a popular form of aerobic exercise, and a great choice for those with back pain. Biking is less jarring to the spine than other forms of aerobic exercise, such as jogging, and can be performed either outside or in the gym.

The advantage of biking to individuals with back pain is that the positioning of the body can be altered to certain back conditions. Some may find relief by biking in a forward-leaning position, while others may find comfort on a recumbent bike, which is in a reclining position. Even with these advantages, it is important to focus on proper form to prevent back and neck injuries while biking. Be sure to distribute some weight to the arms and keep your chest up, periodically lifting and lowering the neck to avoid neck strain. Whether biking outside or in the gym, be sure to adjust the bicycle to fit your body. If you prefer to bike outside, invest in some shock-absorbing accessories including seats and seat covers, handlebar covers, gloves and shock absorbers on the front forks (front shocks or full suspension shocks depending on the type of riding you plan to do and the terrain).

In addition to your biking routine, it is also important to do some back strengthening exercises, and core body exercises to provide strength and conditioning for the back. Individuals with back pain can benefit from treatment by a doctor of chiropractic, who can provide back pain relief in addition to an exercise regimen customized to your individual needs.
