Rowers Injuries

The focus for this week will be on Rowing injuries in young adults. The rowing stroke is a repeated continuous cycle, from a position with the legs flexed, elbows straight to a fully extended knee position and elbow flexion with the oar handle drawn into the body. A strong back and core strength is a vital component to increase power through the stroke and avoid injury. Poor technique is common, especially in novice rowers, and unless this is rectified, injuries are almost inevitable. Rehabilitation of an injured upper extremity requires knowledge of the sport, experience in treating related upper extremity injuries in both acute and chronic phases of rehabilitation. A successful treatment outcome depends on a holistic approach and close liaison with the coach #HandConsultSA #RowingInjuries #Rehabilitation
