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.

There are safety essentials such as helmets are a must, as well as buoyancy aids for adults, children and even pets! Pocket knives are also a good idea and come included with some throw bags which also contain rope. Dry bags are good to have to keep all your essentials dry inside the canoe while you are paddling.
You must ensure that appropriate safety equipment (such as life jackets etc.) are worn at all times and you do not participate in Canoeing for more than 90 days in any one Period of Insurance.
