Cycling has numerous health benefits and can be advantageous to anyone trying to lose weight or maintain fitness, it does not only have an advantage for people with knee injuries and conditions.
Cycling will aid your recovery and improve knee joint mobility, especially in cases after injury or surgery to the knee and surrounding areas. Exercise at the appropriate time is vital to rehabilitation, and has been used in rehab following things such as arthroscopy. Cycling can also help those with osteoarthritis of the knees as it is a non-weight-bearing activity (Hydrotherapy is also a great form of non weight bearing exercise available here at KW Physio Dublin). It is also used as an injury-prevention modality, and very popular among those with a history of low back pain, hamstring strains or calf strains.
