Brief Answer: strain on the shoulder muscles Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX It seems like there is more strain on the shoulder muscles due to bike riding. The muscles in the neck and shoulders go into spasm when there is more burden on them. For recovery from this, you need to give rest to your shoulders. Avoid using bike as much as possible. Take complete rest for a day or two till the spasm is released. You can take simple muscle relaxants like Hifenac MR. I prescribe my patients this. You can do hot fomentation locally on the neck and shoulder area twice daily to get relief. Also, use volini spray on your shoulders and neck when in pain. Get well soon.
