What's Cyclist Syndrome, Anyway?

Cyclist Syndrome, is a term cyclists use to describe a variety of musculoskeletal issues and pudendal neuralgia that can arise from spending too much time in the saddle. From pesky knee pain to aching lower backs, cyclists often find themselves grappling with discomfort that can put a damper on their two-wheeled adventures.


Getting to the Bottom of the Issue: Ultrasound Diagnosis

One of the game-changers in the fight against Cyclist Syndrome is the use of ultrasound for diagnosis. Traditional methods might miss underlying issues that an ultrasound can spot with precision. This non-invasive technique allows physiotherapists to get a real-time look at the affected areas, ensuring an accurate diagnosis and targeted treatment plan.

Pedaling Toward Relief: Injection Therapy

For many riders, the thought of injections might be scarier than facing a steep incline. However, injection therapy has proven to be a powerful ally in the battle against Cyclist Syndrome. These injections, often a mix of anti-inflammatory medications, can directly target the problem areas, providing relief where it's needed most.

The Tailored Approach: Medications Designed Just for You

No two cyclists are the same, and neither are their bodies. Tailored medications take into account individual differences, ensuring that the treatment plan is as unique as the rider. From pain management to inflammation reduction, these personalised medications can be a game-changer for those struggling with Cyclist Syndrome.



Tecar therapy is sometimes considered for pudendal neuralgia, a condition causing pelvic pain. Tecar therapy involves radiofrequency currents. Our Fit2Go Team will be happy to discuss this treatment with you.
