Canoeing injuries

General Advice

Repetitive paddling is the cause of most canoeing or kayaking injuries to your shoulder, hand and wrist or lower back.

Damage to the rotator cuff muscles is the most common shoulder injury. Canoeists knee sometimes crops up in kayakers who paddle from a kneeling position. As with most sports, incidence of injury increases with the amount of time spent paddling and the intensity with which it is done.
