Approach to Injury

Assessment of changes in the training process (intensity, volume, or frequency) along with equipment, technique, and biomechanical issues (muscle imbalances, alignment, and length of extremities), or deficiencies in strength. Research reports that up to 50 % of injuries in elite rowers have been related to land- based training, including ergometer training and weight training. Furthermore, recent evidence suggests that completely removing an injured athlete from training is predictive of injury recurrence, as he or she must play ‘catch-up’ upon return to sport. Maintaining a normal training load whilst avoiding both aggravating factors and complete prolonged rest is therefore important #HandConsultSA #RowingInjury
