Neck Doctor and Back Specialist Available to Treat Mountain Biking Athletes in Vail, CO
Vail, Colorado is not only a fantastic location in the winter. It is also a popular and family-friendly city for recreational athletes in the summer. Hiking, trail running and mountain biking allow athletes of all ages to enjoy the awe-inspiring natural setting on miles of trails.
Back pain while mountain biking has become a common non-traumatic injury experienced by many riders. The main cause of back pain is heavy backpacks loaded with snacks, water, first aid supplies and safety gear. Hiking and trail running athletes who wear heavy backpacks may also experience back pain. Other mountain biking athletes may experience low back pain from weak core muscles, poor hip mobility and incorrect bike position and size.
