Back Pain & An Exercise Bike

Have you ever used an upright exercise bicycle for awhile and had your back hurt? If you are like me, you have. An exercise bike is a favored piece of equipment to use during the tkr recuperation process. One of my readers expressed concerns about what to do about their back pain from an upright.

Immediately after my tkr, my back pain was at its worse since my body would almost fall off the upright bike as I made a pedal rotation. My tkr knee couldn’t flex enough for the pedaling process. That was the purpose of the using this bike. Back pain was especially troublesome during my rehab 1-12 weeks after my tkr (that’s right, I said 1-12 weeks). Then, I had a chance to get a recumbent exercise bike and went for it.

There is no back pain from using a recumbent exercise bike. You are sitting in a comfortable, cushioned seat that is ergonomically correct. In fact, your entire body is ergonomically fitted in this bike. The seat is large enough for a variety of body types. There is no crouching or bending of the back at all while using this form of exercise equipment.

The recumbent bike does not provide as intense a workout for increasing your tkr flexibility, though. The upright bike is far better at doing this.

So, if you want a change from using an upright exercise bike, try a recumbent. Your back will thank you.

  • Everyone can be affected by back pain, but it’s more common in those who are overweight or who sit slouching for long periods of time.

    Back pain can occur at any age, but the peak time is between the ages of 45 and 59. Men and women tend to be affected equally.

    What’s the treatment?
    The road to recovery is individual and you’ll have to work out (with some medical help) what suits you. However, there are a few general points.

    Seek specialist help as early as possible, when treatment is most effective, and before acute problems become chronic.
    In the acute stages, some treatments help most people. Regular and effective pain relief is essential.
    For the first two to three days after a sudden injury, take painkillers at fixed intervals as directed on the label – don’t wait for the pain to kick in before taking the next dose. If this isn’t enough to control the pain, get advice from your pharmacist or doctor.
    Applying alternate hot and cold compresses to the affected area may also help relieve pain.
    It’s recommended you remain as active as possible rather than lying flat on your back for days on end, unless specifically advised otherwise by your doctor.
