Handlebar problems in bicycling

Handlebar problems in bicycling

Clinics in Sports Medicine 13(1): 165-173

Handlebar problems are common among serious bicyclists. Compression neuropathy, more commonly ulnar than median, is frequent but seldom produces permanent injury or deficit if promptly recognized and managed by attending to bicycle fit, energy-absorbing gloves and handlebar treatments, and cycling technique. Overuse symptoms may be seen if bicycle design and fit couple with repetitive motion to aggravate wrist tendons or connective tissues of the neck and shoulder. Mechanical and medical management are effective in relieving symptoms and preventing recurrence.
