The Physician and Sportsmedicine: Rowing Injuries (3115 words)
Rowing athletes train virtually year-round, with emphasis on distance training in the fall, weights and distance in the winter, and increasing intensity and anaerobic work in the spring and summer racing seasons.
In sweep rowing, the back is also twisted slightly during the stroke to achieve more reach in the catch position, which may increase the incidence of back pain (4), though this does not appear to be the case in my experience or that of several US national rowing team physicians.
Rowing is an outdoor sport; thus, rowers should be aware of exposure and safety issues, including sun exposure augmented by reflection from the water and hypothermia augmented by wet clothing.
