In addition to the usual diagnostic methods to study musculoskeletal injuries in cycling (history, examination and imaging) is considered essential to evaluate the injured cyclists on position, alignment and movement while pedaling.

This paper concludes that when the rider has a chronic tendon injury in the lower extremity, is necesary to assess the action of pedaling to evaluate the forces applied and the angle of maximun force at both end. The Wattbike cycloergometer used in this study, is a great help in obtaining data confirming the final diagnosis.
