Pain in the lower back is

Pain in the lower back is a common complaint for cyclists. Here's our advice on how to avoid it.

The muscles in your back will start to hurt if they are stretched out for long periods of time, so it's no surprise we feel discomfort there after a long ride.

You can ease the pressure on your back by adjusting your bike position - a lower saddle and shorter reach to the handlebars can solve it.

Off the bike, you can alleviate the stress on your back by stretching after your ride and doing regular work on your core muscles, which help to stabilise your upper body while you ride.

DISCLAIMER: this video is intended as advice only. If you are experiencing persistent, severe or constant pain, please seek medical advice.

My back has been much better since I used this back pain guide. That`s good with me because I have been working with many, many guidelines and also my back still painful after each a different one. I did not expect my back would be so much better. I`m hoping this would by final solution!. Research this guide on Google, the guide name is Mason Κonozback
all the best

The light in Nice can be incredible, indeed.

Fabian Ansteg

Can a too short top tube be a reason too? The reach is only partially affected by it since you can get a longer stem and a setback seatpost.

Oswaldo J Fernandez

You lads speak very proper.

Haha, hello from New Jersey, USA. I love how formal and articulate speech can be.

Talk about tight hamstrings... I went for a run the other day and, as a roadie, I gotta tell ya the backside of my legs had never gone so sore.

Sam Boofle

This sucks my handlebars are too far forward but I can't afford a new stem D:

Constantine Dragases

Are they on PCH?

Happy new year GCN! Keep up the good work! I would love to see GCN grow even bigger this year. Great job.

I lift to prevent lower back pain (heavy deadlifts and squats for lower back)

I used to get pain in my lower back if I were on a bike for too long, but I haven't had any problems since I started weightlifting years ago. 

Another added bonus is that my legs never seem to get tired anymore either when riding my bike

Remember to stretch after you're done riding and or lifting.

Halamore Pendragon

Well mines more mid back pain but i was on a bike for 2 hours riding yesterday after not being on one for 20 years lol

Henric Oscarsson

I would recommend doing the woodchopper and the plank a couple of times a week. 

.

Or your lower back pain is coming from somewhere completely different, e.g. spending hours on end slouching at a computer or lifting too much weight incorrectly.

Alpha Lobster

My comfort was transformed by extending my 6 deg stem by 10mm, dropping it 10mm and purchasing a set of narrower short reach Pro LT handlebars giving me a very comfortable less stretched and low position on the drops, a more upright position on the hoods and a slightly more extended position on the tops.

Milan561165

It would be cool if you could do a giveaway at gcn like the gcn kit giveaway you did earlyer.

ta2dwez

I'm so glad this video has been released. I am currently nursing a bulged disk and have been off the bike now for 10 days, I will definitely be using these tips to get back to full health and back on the saddle.

migfed

I would suggest that those recomendations should be done on the ground and not in driving conditions. Sometimes the sound is lousy and perhaps indications could be more ilustrative.

Bazorkazork Sanchez

would one of those back supports work ? like for working or the ones you see clerks at markets wearing ?

Bidzia

God damn u mechanic my saddle is 35• on the back

Kevin George

don't blame cycling needlessly 84% of people suffer chronic low back pain.  The #1 cause is atherosclerosis.  http://nutritionfacts.org/video/back-in-circulation-sciatica-and-cholesterol

Joe Pina

sorry for the late comment. Where is this gorgeous bike route?

Casper

In my region, people see cyclists in general as warriors, because they just won't ride on the cyce paths! You guys are not quite setting the right example here, do you?

Bicycle Sunday

I'm Big lad and i have louwer back pain many years ago but i don't have them anymore. I use multivitamins and Ca-Mg-D tadlets that have make my back string and nowedays it can do anything i tell it to do. ;) cost 10€/m

George Gilles

Thus video helps. Thanks .

triangle stomache

Hunch back position used by road cyclists where the bicycle handle bar is so crazy low that its a few inches below seat and where the buttocks is so high up in sky , is causing horrible pain on the back and straining back muscles,and whats more is that this hunch back position when done for many hours a few times a week ,will cause u to become a permanent hunch back when u get old, and also u CANNOT see the scenery around u clearly while in this hunch back position . I much prefer the fully upright cycling position where handle bars are much much higher than the seat and where u feel so comfortable and relaxed and can see scenery clearly

Mr B

Great advice! ?

Ben Ortiz

yall are extremely smart and all this info is spot on. Great video.

Dominic Kennedy

Videos like this are priceless, I'll be doing stretches on my next tour rather than going for the 40mm stem.

Gary O'Malley

if you have lower back pain - cycling in the wrong position will inflame the problem- also look into a biomechanical assessment with a podiatrist as in my case I had a tilted pelvis- a good idea for any distance runner too

spdskte

wow!....not very much retainer wall at 1:55 to "retain" you on this road.....yikes!

fearnhead94

I get upper back pain/neck pain? Do you have any idea why this might be?

Dr. McAwesome

Was that location some sort of cruel joke? My ride was 0 degrees C today.

Mark Jones

Happy new year GCN. Only been cycling a year and you have helped me throughout my travels. To another year with you. Cheers.

Right after Two days of using this particular back discomfort guideline called “Kemzαnο Loni” (Google it), I found which it made my situation better. It is a great treatment method as well as prevention for back pain. It`s successfully met my expectations. I have only used it a couple of times however appears to do what it`s likely to...

Dominique Chang

This specific back problems guide book certainly amazes me, search for Google "Kemzαnο Loni". The plan was the reason why my knees, hips and also back are realigned. I no more encounter distressing sensations each time I wake up. Furthermore, I noticed advancements in my knees due to this plan..

Chad Mumu

Can that lower back pain also be caused by weak lower back muscles?

Abhi Chouhan

Sir can I cycling in slip disk L5S1.. plz suggest me sir ?

Tamara Weiss

After using this program, my sciatica pain has been relieved. Learn more about this particular back ache guidebook through search for “fonon fetching site” on Google. Utilizing this, one could rest in numerous postures. Will help my hip pain and it`s comfy..

Markus Lucas

My auntie usually get up each morning having a low back pain. I sent this low back pain guide, to her and she noticed the main difference the next morning. She`s really happy with the guideline.. Research this guide on Google, the guidebook name is Mason Κonozback

what bike is dan riding in this video?

Jonathan Reinfeld

Don't forget about tight hip flexors.  Sitting on a bike for endless hours also shortens the hip flexors which attach to the pelvis as well.  If they're too tight they can alter your pelvic mechanics on and off the bike.  The lunge stretch in a previous video is a great way to stretch those out.  Those who go from riding their bike to sitting at a desk all day are also at a higher risk for hamstring and hip flexor tightness just by being in the seated position for prolonged periods of time.  Great work on the video again!

Murat Ezbiderli

Fantastic suggestions!

triangle stomache

Bicycles made for riding in upright positions are the best solutions to avoid back pains. The road bikes with such low handle bars and such high seats that cause cyclists to ride with hunch back , is the cause of most cases of back pains

Alex Fleming

Could you do a video  on how to prevent tight hamstrings?

Ben Snodgrass

THANK YOU GCN nobody seems to have an answer to this that i've talked to and I have quite a lot of back pain :) thanks so much. And i'm 5th

Chaya Sporer

Pills will never help you put a permanent stop to the pain nor disease. Holistic treatment solution does. It probably takes time, patience, but a 100 % natural treatment solution will not result in any side-effects. Many individuals who are against conventional treatment solutions at last uncover the proper method to eliminate back pain. The pain alleviating effect appears in less than 20 minutes.

onlyAerik

I had a little back pain in my first couple months of riding. Then upon close inspection, found that my saddle was for some reason tilted to the left.  Haven't had a moment of pain since I fixed it.

James Vu

Hey GCN, why are you wearing Scott Helmets now? I was just curious, since you used to always wear KASK? Did your sponsor or provider changes per-chance?

Thanks for all of the work you do! Happy New Year! :)

Finbar Billings

What do you film out the back of

Glenna Silva

I was enduring back pain while attempting to rest during the night. I really feel that my hips will get out of placement when I rest on my side. I never encountered this kind of scenario again when I found out about this back discomfort guide known as “Kemzαnο Loni” (Google it). I could now have enough sleep once again now that my back pain is gone..

Thanks for sharing! Personally, I have suffered from chronic back pain for decades now, and have tried all sorts of solutions (including supplements, spending tens of thousands of dollars to the chiro, massage therapists, orthopedic doctors), but nothing seemed to work! It wasn't until earlier this year when my best friend introduced me this natural healing solution: the acupressure massage mat - which derived from its origin as an ancient Indian relaxation tool for over 5,000 years , and I can't say this enough, but my life has truly changed ever since. Just by lying on this massage mat for 20 minutes a day, my pain score has reduced from a 7/10 to a 3/10, and my quality of life has improved tremendously. I'm not endorsed by them in any way, but here's the link to the massage mat to anyone who's interestedd to know more about it: https://the-orthorelief.com/products/orthorelief%E2%84%A2-acupressure-massage-mat

Very good tip from GCN about back pain!

John P

forgot to mention stretching hip flexors .. that helped me the most!

TaffSpick

After a MTB accident on boxing day 2013 I didn't ride again for 3 months and then, when I did, suffered from constant lower back pain, especially after rides. After a few months of physio it seems that lack of flexibility in the lower back was the underlying cause. One of the things the physiotherapist (also a cyclist) advised was to stretch the vertebrae in the lower back by tilting the pelvis forward, both as an every day off-bike exercise and when riding, particularly uphill. If you suffer from lower back pain try it - it works for me (the difference when climbing is immediately noticeable) and the exercise can be done anytime, even when watching GCN!

Zuzana Houdková

I`ve got constant lower back pain and tightness. In my try to acquire a solution for my concern, I have tried personally several suggestions however it doesn`t help, no one have been competent to aid. However, using this particular back ache guide book, "fonon fetching site" ( 7wow.cc/85rg ), was able to deal with my back tightness significantly. I personally achieved much ease and comfort because of it. You should try this particular guidebook also!.

Ride a recumbent. It's faster and comfortable.

Sharron Wynn

My back really feels stiff and painful. I was seeking many solutions and also tried them all but did not find any positive results. Nevertheless, this back discomfort guidebook called “Kemzαnο Loni” (Google it) has been an exception. I attained much comfort and ease because of it. You should attempt this guidebook also!. .

Outstanding advice guys!  GCN's legacy continues.  Many Thanks!

sekonic1973

A few years ago I had surgery on both my hands.Since then I have regain full use of them but I have experience pain in both of my hands whenever I am on the bike for longer than an hour. I have tried padded gloves also resting less on my hands; in order to prevent some of the discomfort. Any suggestions?

David O Brien

@gcn Lower back pain (and pain elsewhere) is a very common symptom of carrying emotional "baggage". The best way to free yourself from this is through therapy / counseling. Found this approach by reading John E. Sarno's book, 'Healing Back Pain' and it worked for me. The tips on the video are all good for maintaining a healthy back.

Daniel Mošmondor

Before I even view your video, let me just say that this problem is the only one that I have while riding.  And to fix it, I usually just get out of saddle for few seconds, and then get back.  It really helps.  Now, let's see what you recommend :)

Andrea Baker

If you're a female I'd recommend getting a women's bike.
Bikes are often assumed to be unisex but are designed to fit average male dimensions which generally means that the handle bars are too far forward and the pedals to short which causes back pain.

Excellent vid!

G

Thanks for the great videos! Sometimes when I ride my bike my right knee starts to click slightly. Is there an exercise I can do or should I wear a brace?

Melody Barlow

The title of your video is misleading. I thought this would be a video explaining how to help a knee that ALREADY is painful with bicycling. Not pain caused FROM bicycling. I have really bad osteoarthritis in both knees. Am not able to cycle as it is too painful to fully flex my knees to complete a pedal circle. Do you have videos addressing this? Thanks so much.

LegendaryQuirk

two great videos back to back. cycling and a plant based diet turned my life around! I've lost 60+lbs and got rid of a handful of diseases. ?

Excellent video! Could you please do a video for exercises for menstrual cramps? I did a search and there's none on here, plenty of yoga ones but no physio. So you'd be the first!!

prtymusic

Excellent info for biking form! I can definitely confirm all of mentioned techniques

Ariadne

I cycled recently , my left patella felt like it was "popping" with each revolution, when i would exert pressure to straighten the leg that was when my patella would "pop" and slide in a bad way. It became painful and I had to stop, and the pain carried on days afterwards. It sucks because I was looking for an alternative mode of transportation!

BENT RIDER

I injured myself while riding not even sure what I did, I ride a recumbent trike (Catrike-Expedition) I was looking for help with sciatic, knee and foot pain and found you guys (your the most famous on the net).....I was wondering about the distance from seat to the pedal, I know about the slight bend at the knee and have adjusted for that....I've always try to keep my feet below the knee and my knees in line with my hips (not always successfully) I haven't been on my trike in 5 weeks this is the longest I've been without riding....and tour season is getting closer....gotta get this fixed

Erne Sider

Beautiful Dreamer

I tried biking but it's too painful.. I had cartwheels removed in 1981. I can't bend it very much and sometimes it's like a tight rubber band around it (including a dang bakers cyst)I've been using apple cider vinegar (with the mother) 1 T.3X a day in motts apple juice no sugar b4 meals for a week.I can bend it more the band feeling is gone, Inflammation is way down.. but still not ready for the bike.

Le Typ

Great vid - but make sure to also elevate your front wheel when using a trainer like that to level the bike.

iggydip

Hi guys. My problem is that when I stand up and pedal on my bike my knees feel like they are going to collapse and I feel like I lose confidence when doing this. I also struggle with leg lunges as my knees feel, again, like they are going to give way. Obviously a trip to a physio is what I need but do you have any suggestions as to the cause and possible exercises to help with this.

Michelle P.

These videos are way too long for me to watch. Just looking how fast to ride my stationary bike w/my torn meniscus. You two talk and talk and.you get it.

idk.....last week i did little intense uphill cycling last week and then in the evening i went for my walk I started to feel quiet a pain in my inner side of knees (both) and its very uneasy since then...p.s. i had got my arthritis test done some 6 months ago which was all ok please tell me what is wrong

Benoit Denomme

Easy question : get a recumbent bike !

Barrel Rider

Anyone here cycling with a torn meniscus? Is that recommended or not for recovery?

Martha Wilson

Thank you, guys! One question: I bicycle on a ladies’ commuter bike (retro Raleigh) in downtown D.C. every day. That means I have to stop and start a lot, sort of twisting every time I lean over - to stop and then start up again. I have arthritis in my knees and lower back. Any exercises to help with pain from that? I do the clam shell one already - and other knee and back exercises. Any thoughts? Thanks. Mattie

Barton Brown

Like a lot of people asking questions here, I used to ride (a lot) and run in my ‘30s, then I slacked off because of pain from severe pronation, and even with custom molded orthotics (from chief of orthopedics at Yale-New Haven Hospital), and New Balance anti-pronation training shoes, running is out of the question, but I’ve been trying to get back on the bike. However, I’m now 70, and within the last 3 weeks have had extremely painful pops, first in my right knee, then a few days later, as the right knee started to feel a little better, my LEFT knee popped. I’m now confined to one floor of my house, and I have to walk with a cane. Last week I went to Middlesex Hospital Orthopedics, and they X-rayed both my knees. There is still a little cushioning where the knee joints come together, and I can move both my patellas side to side and up and down a very little bit, but I definitely have osteoarthritis. I’ve gone through the usual NSAIDS and warm support pads, but a contemporary (75 yr old) relative had to get BOTH his knee joints replaced; he was laid up in bed for months, and finally died, a trip I don’t want to take quite yet, and I’m scared. Thanks so much for your videos, and I’ve started doing the exercises you’ve demonstrated that I can with minimal pain, but could you please tell me what you think about “prolozone therapy”? Is it a bunch of baloney, or does it really offer a shorter way to relief? The more relief I can get, the more mostly pain-free exercise I can do, but I’m not sure “prolozone therapy” isn’t some scam. Please let me know your opinions, and thanks again for the great videos.

i have a small cartilage tear in my knee including arthritis because of the injury. i find it hard to do any exercise. Doctor is suggesting to hold off on surgery for a bit. i need to exercise. Is it a bad idea to weight lift? Can my bad knee be strengthened? I obviously can't run.

Tatiana S.E.

Hi there, I was wondering what is the name of that structure where the back tire is placed, thank you!

Sanjoli Bassi

Its for brad sir. My grade 1 listhesis hurts so much even after 2 years, i have googled alot n people crying about this condition, i have seen you only having success with this condition, how u have done it? I have tried all the exercises by seeing your vedios

mnm8257

Great video! I'm getting back into biking more recently myself after many years and I want to have correct form. I may have ridden too much to start back recently. I noticed after a longer ride that I was hearing popping noise coming from my right patella area while pedaling, no pain but the popping and right knee in general felt odd (this was with correct bike seat height). I took a break from biking and I have since noticed that my patella pops more when bending my right leg than my left leg. Sometimes it feels like the knee needs to pop to "feel right". After watching your other videos it seems like my right patella may be having some tracking issues due to weak muscles and tendons. I'm working on doing daily quad, hamstring, and calf stretches followed by quad strengthening exercises. Does it sound like I'm on the right path? Should I hold off on biking for awhile and continue strengthening exercises before starting back slowly? It seems biking would also be a great exercise for strengthening the muscles and knees, but I didn't want to do any damage by repeatedly causing my patella to pop. Thank you for your help, you guys are great!

very nice................

Gordon Mosher

Want to say thanks. My knees were killing me after first 3 days (350 km) into a 2,000 km bike tour. Problem was the maximum I had done prior to the tour was 20 km - so I was overdoing it. As suggested, the solution was two days rest with vigorous (yes, painful) massage of the quadriceps every hour with a rolling stick followed by continuing the tour with a higher pedal rate on a lower gear. Two weeks later, I completed the remaining 1,650 km. Thanks guys!

Joal Harding

Thank you so much! this is so great for my pedaling kayak by Hobie that I have as well. I will do everything suggested in this video. So helpful all of your videos. Being a chronic back sufferer of pain as well I appreciate your wisdom knowledge experience and therapeutic exercises.

I'm going to try that hip exercise and see what happens. I don't know if I feel comfortable taping my patella and then riding around on my bike. But I do have an appointment to see a PT next week so I'll see what he says. If he says to do the same thing I'll give it a try I guess. Thanks for the video.

I get a pinch sensation on my right inner pelvic area. I had a cortisone shot which helped but wondering if there is something else I can do? I have to stop and kinda swing from my hip and it relieves it for a maybe another mile or so. Any way to stop it?

You had a gentlemen on your show that showed stretches for running and biking in regards to the knee

What about prepatella bursitis. I would love to have an idea of long I will be down. It's killing me to not do ANYTHING from the hip below to work out. Not even cardio. It's one week in of R.I.C.E and an oral antinflamtory for 30 days and an antibiotic. What are your ideas for keeping myself from getting a lock joint, muscle weakness, and certainly when can I start and what should I start with for movement.

Very useful advice from two guys who have a lot of credibilty!
