Why do my feet tingle or go numb when I cycle ?

pain when cyclingThis is a common condition occurring in cyclists which can be related to several factors says our Physiotherapist Matt Geister.

The nerves in the feet called interdigital nerves can have compression issues or lack circulation. This may come about due to poor fitting shoes, incorrect cleat position or also from nerves further up the leg. Even lower back issues affecting the sciatic nerve can have a similar effect.

You can consult one of the Physiotherapists at MGS Physiotherapy about your bicycle riding related problems and any knee pain experienced whilst cycling.
