Causes of Forearm and Wrist Injuries in Rowers

Forearm and wrist injuries can usually be traced back to poor technique or fatigue, through excessive wrist motion during the action of feathering the oar (turning the oar so that it moves parallel to the water on the recovery), or a tight grip. Injuries include: * Exertional compartment syndrome (ECS) * Lateral epicondylitis * De Quervain's tenosynovitis * Intersection syndrome Wrongly sized handle grips, poor rigging, and wet or cold conditions can all exacerbate the problem #HandConsultSA #RowingInjuries
