Any endurance sport that requires long periods of repeated muscular contractions undoubtedly places huge strain on ones body.
As a result most amateur sports participants who have no access to regular massage and physiotherapy treatments leave themselves open to all sorts of potential problems that could prove very expensive to rectify, both from a financial and time point of view.
However most problems associated with the demands placed on the body from endurance events are totally preventable through pro-active work, that in as little as 2 sessions a week can strengthen/lengthen key areas of the body to prevent these problems arising in the first instance.
Typical unidentified physiological conditions that could lead to injuries include:
- Coronal strength imbalances
- Core stability issues
- Flexibility issues
- Connective tissue weakness
- Chronic fatigue through over-training
- Incorrect bike set up especially Time Trial position
- Diet (Too much of certain foods cause joint inflammation)
