Does your bike seat hurt your bum? A recreational or elite cyclist who complains of numbness or impotence after cycling is the typical presentation of bicycle seat neuropathy.
This condition may be confused for CPPS or Prostatitis or simply perineum pain
Study: National Athletic Trainers' Assoc. Inc.
The amount of time the athlete spent cycling before the onset of symptoms is variable; however, studies have focused on long-distance, multi-day rides. Additionally, the use of a stationary bicycle has also been reported to cause bicycle seat neuropathy.
Groin injuries are commonly encountered by physicians and clinicians who treat athletes of all ages at all levels of competition. Groin injuries are particularly common in activities in which forceful abduction of the hip occurs; examples include skating, ice hockey, swimming, and soccer. As many as 10% of ice hockey-related injuries and 5% of soccer-related injuries are groin injuries.
The time for the injured perineum to heal is a factor of rest, stress reduction, and treatment. The H3Pelvic ™ can help you close this window of undesired pain.
