Abstract

Rowing injuries occur mostly from overuse and are seen primarily in the back, rib, knee, and forearm. Many of these have a specific cause owing to the mechanics of the rowing stroke, which are discussed, as are sport-specific treatment strategies. Also discussed are specific injuries sustained on the rowing machine, emergency issues, and special population concerns.
