After picking up a copy of cycling weekly last week I was delighted to see a bit of positive publicity about our profession. The editor of the magazine, Robert Garbutt, explains that when he thought all was lost in regards to returning to cycling he sought the help of a chiropractor who got him back on the back in a matter of weeks. Below is an excerpt of the article:
“If your back hurts when you ride a bike, don’t ride a bike,” was pretty much the advice from my doctor. I was prescribed as many painkillers as I wanted but warned that if I didn’t quit cycling I would end up in a wheelchair!
That wasn’t an option. I tried physios and osteopaths but with only limited success until I was introduced to a cycling-friendly chiropractor. That was the turning point. I was back on the bike within weeks and by using a weekly Pilates session to build core strength, it’s been enough to keep me riding ever since.
