Back in 2016 I released a survey on my website looking at a number of different factors surrounding shoulder injuries in whitewater kayakers. The original intent was to simply see if injury rates differed among boaters using straight shaft or bentshaft paddles, but the scope quickly grew beyond that. Thanks to all of you that did the survey back then - over 2,700 people responded!
Iíve been sitting on this data for two years now and just donít have the time to do a thorough statistical analysis, so Iím putting it out here into the community.
You can download excel files of the results here: https://www.johnnestler.com/blog/201...-injury-survey
Itís interesting to read the comments made by respondents to get their analysis of what caused the injury, and the steps theyíve taken to prevent those injuries from reoccurring.
