LT 029 | Sarah Black – Rowing Injuries and Prevention Strategies
In Episode 029 of the LEO Training Podcast I sat down with Sarah Black, lead athletic therapist for Rowing Canada. Sarah works with the Men’s National Team in Canada and works with the athletes on injury prevention and rehabilitation. The training center has a really unique environment in that she is afforded the ability to observe the athletes in the rowing shell, on the ergometer, in the gym and in a clinical setting. This environment is unique and provides the team constant feedback into the health and state of the athletes.
Here is what you will learn in this episode:
- Sarah’s background into athletics
- The sports and athletes she works with
- How a centralized location and training center provides continuity and consistency
- What is FRC (Functional Range Conditioning)?
- Most common injuries she sees on the rowing team
- Prevention strategies
- Rehab strategies
- Special considerations for junior rowers vs. elite vs. masters
- Why people must have pre-requisites of movement first before they focus on whole movement patterns
- and much more.
