Common Injuries whilst Wakeboarding
Wakeboarding is an extreme sport so it does carry a high risk factor. Injuries range from minor to major and include:
Wakeboarding can be good fun but to avoid injury you must keep focus and balance at all times.
If you are Wakeboarding for the first time then make sure you train at an established centre with a certified instructor. All safety checks must be carried out and equipment must be monitored regularly. If you are not a strong swimmer then it is advised that you wear a life jacket while Wake Boarding.
If you do receive an injury while Wakeboarding, it is important to rest for a couple of days so as not to aggravate the injury.
Use ice packs during this time to reduce pain and swelling. After this time, you can use heat packs to begin stimulating blood flow to the injured area. Heat will also help muscles relax and ease your pain.
Using a compressive support bandage and elevating the damaged area will also aid your recovery. Also try to avoid alcohol as this increases swelling and bleeding.
As with most injuries, the sooner you begin treatment, the greater chance you have of a swift recovery and lessen the chances of long term damage.
You must ensure that you do not participate in Wakeboarding for more than 90 days in any one Period of Insurance.
