Common Injuries and Conditions in Rowers

Abigail Theresia Lang, Clinton Hartz

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The sport of rowing is a rapidly growing endurance sport; because of the low-impact nature, many amateur athletes are trying the sport. With improper technique and the repetitive motions needed in rowing, the athlete can be at risk for overuse injuries in arm/wrists, low back, knees, and ribs. Early diagnosis and treatment is essential in getting the athlete back to sport safely and quickly. Conservative treatment with rest and rehabilitation is the mainstay of treatment for these overuse injuries.
