While rowing is not generally considered as a dangerous pursuit, there are various types of rowing that operate on a range of waters, such as ocean, touring, rowability and skiff racing.
Rowing can be a particularly fast paced, vigorous activity, which challenges the body, and the safety of the rower depends not only on their skill and experience, but on the temperament of the water, which can be somewhat unpredictable and, as such, life threatening.
Common rowing accident injuries include, but are not limited to:
- Strains and sprains
- Bumps and bruises
- Water-borne infections
- Inflammation of tendons
- Fractures and dislocations
- Head injuries and concussion
- Severe muscular pain
- Slips, trips and falls
