Common Injuries whilst Canoeing

Canoeing can be a very dangerous sport with a risk of drowning, hypothermia or even death. If you injure your muscles while Canoeing, it is best to rest for two or three days to avoid aggravating the injury.

Elevate the injured area and treat with ice packs to reduce swelling and relieve pain. After a couple of days you can use heat pads to increase blood flow to the affected area.
