8 causes of cycling knee pain, see where you really did not do right?

Cycling for a period of time, sometimes hear riders complain about knee pain after heavy riding, in fact, this is due to improper riding style caused by knee meniscus damage.

  The meniscus of the knee is a fibrocartilaginous tissue with a thick perimeter and thin inner edge in the shape of a wedge, which is half-moon shaped from the plane, called the meniscus; it is filled between the femoral condyle and the tibial condyle and has the role of enhancing the stability of the knee joint. The structural and functional characteristics of the meniscus make it one of the most easily damaged tissues in the knee joint.

  The following is a brief explanation of the 8 conditions that are more likely to cause injury.
  1、Riding with force in a direction that is not consistent with the foot and pedals.

  2、The thigh muscle strength does not keep up when suddenly powering up to speed.
  When the muscles are highly fatigued (without cramps), if the muscle strength of the thighs can not be brought up, the whole body weight plus the original pressure will be all over the knee, I tried once, the knee quickly swell up, practice bending knee can not be, but in the application of drugs and do a small amount of walking after the swelling slowly subsided. I heard that a long-term situation like this can cause fluid retention.

  3, long-term low-frequency riding.
  Many people will think that low frequency riding can make the power better, but the chance of injury to both knees will be much greater than high frequency.

  4, Excessive climbing exercises.

  5, too high or too low saddle height.

  6, excessive weighted deep squatting exercises.
  Strength exercises should be gradual, a little too much weight will make the knee injury.

  7, the knee injury is not treated in a timely manner.

  8, incorrect warm-up exercises.
  Do some warm-up exercises related to the knee for a long time, such as bending knee rotation. This action will wear out the meniscus and is not advocated.
