Abstract

Cycling is currently one of the most popular recreational activities. Hence, there are increases in the numbers of injuries resulting from cycling. Most of the injuries are to the knee and are of non-contact nature and therefore, preventable. The majority of pain syndromes are non-traumatic and caused by overuse, inadequate preparation, inappropriate equipment, poor technique and lack of training. The treatment of non-traumatic knee injuries is regularly conservative, including: rest, ice, NSAID's training programs modification and adequate equipment. Delayed treatment can cause chronic injuries.
