    Different types of spin bike injuries

    Spin bike workouts are extremely popular among people looking for cardiovascular or aerobic exercise. Building leg strength and burning up to around 500 calories per session, spin bike exercise can if done properly, be a safe and effective workout. Fast paced, vigorous and involving repetitive cycling movements, it can, however, lead to a variety of spin bike injuries.

    Types of spin bike injuries

    Overuse, incorrect set-up (seat and handle heights) and poor form (body positioning) can lead to spin bike injuries including:

    • Ligament and tendon injuries to the knees
    • Back strain or pulled back muscles
    • Hip pain
    • Wrist injuries (sprains and strains)
    • Ankle strains/sprains

    These spin bike injuries can all be prevented by ensuring your bike is set up properly, maintaining correct body positioning and limiting the time you spend on a bike.

    Other injuries

    Poorly-maintained spin bikes can also cause personal injuries. If pedals brake, users could suffer injuries to the feet or ankles and loose or damaged seats could cause injuries by falling. Accidental contact with rotating or otherwise moving parts could also cause cuts, bruises and lacerations.

    Gym incidents

    Gym owners have a legal duty to maintain equipment in safe, proper working order. They must also ensure users of their equipment are shown how to set up and use this equipment safely. If you were injured by defective equipment or sustained an injury because you were not shown how to use equipment properly, you could be entitled to gym injury compensation.

    Making a claim

    To successfully make a claim for compensation, you will need to provide evidence supporting your claim. This evidence should include:

    • Proof of your injury and its extent/severity (statements by attending medical professionals, your medical records)
    • If possible, photographs (of a defective piece of equipment, for example)
    • Witness statements (what happened when, where and why/how) with witnesses’ current contact details
    • Pay statements (if your injury resulted in loss of earnings)
    • Receipts for any costs incurred as a result of your personal injury
    • Any other relevant documents

    It should perhaps be noted here that while your medical records will be useful in showing your injury and any treatments and/or medication you required for recovery, it may still be necessary for you to undergo an independent medical examination/assessment.
