Common Injuries whilst Water Skiing
Water Skiing injuries can range from light muscle strain to serious injury of fatality. The most frequent ailments are usually muscle related, such as:
If you do receive any injury while Water Skiing, it is best to rest for two to three days to avoid repeating or aggravating the injury.
Ice packs are ideal for the first couple of days after your injury as this will reduce pain and swelling. After this, 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. There should ideally be a 200 ft gap between the person Water Skiing and the boat pulling them along.
You must ensure that you are adequately supervised, that appropriate safety equipment (such as life jacket etc.) are worn at all times and you do not participate in Water Skiing for more than 90 days in any one Period of Insurance.
