I was wondering if anyone had some good information on preventing injury through good stroke mechanics. What are some things coaches have mentioned to you in regards to technique that minimize risk of injury? Do any strokes have higher risk of injury than others?

Now, if someone has good info on how to heal from a lateral epicondylitis (tennis elbow), i'd love to hear about it !

I had to forfeit all of my 2017 season + I'm still struggling with minor inflammation...

Had golfers elbow (on the inner side of the elbow) for a long time and someone told me to do all my 'pull' exercises (like chin ups) with my thumb on the same side of the bar as my fingers. It worked and the condition never came back. Might work with tennis elbow as well.

Sorry, noob here.

Would this exercise be done before paddling/after or does it not matter?

- I've just received the "Thera-Band flexBar workout" and just completed the Tyler Twist (as described on the Amazon link you provided). Thanks again !!!


To November 21 2017, 10:20 AM:
- Though it is something I was already doing (pre injury), thank you for sharing your "thumb" tip


To November 21 2017, 10:32 AM
- I certainly hope it works extremely well


Network54.com/Forum/135730 is a powerful tool for all dragon boaters. I'm saddenened that some here pollute this environnement so much that many, including myself, only stop here once in a long long while.

I got this from doing weighted chin-ups without enough warm up - the so called "slightshot" effect. Physio, the prayer stretch, and bending my wrists back on a daily basis worked for me.
