Introduction to


Focused on the unique physical demands of rowing, this category offers expert guidance on injury prevention and treatment, enhancing performance, and supporting both competitive and leisure rowers.

Welcome to the Rowing category in our Advice Centre! This sport, requiring exceptional strength, endurance, and precision, presents unique challenges and rewards. At the White House Clinic, we understand the specific demands that rowing places on the body, from the repetitive strain on the back and shoulders to the need for exceptional cardiovascular and muscular endurance.

Rowing stands out as an exceptional exercise for its ability to provide a low-impact, full-body workout that improves cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength, and endurance. It’s a versatile activity that anyone can participate in, offering benefits like improved heart health, increased calorie burn for weight management, and enhanced muscle toning across various groups including the legs, back, and arms.

Regular rowing promotes a strong core and back, leading to better posture, and the rhythmic, coordinated movement encourages a meditative state, reducing stress and enhancing the mind-body connection. Furthermore, rowing is a social sport that fosters team spirit and community, providing a supportive environment for achieving personal health and fitness goals. Whether indoors on a machine or out on the water, rowing is a comprehensive workout that supports a balanced lifestyle and overall well-being.

We offer specialised advice and treatments for rowers, addressing common injuries like lower back pain, knee problems, and shoulder issues. Our experts can provide guidance on injury prevention, how to enhance performance and how to reduce the risk of injury. Whether you're a competitive rower or enjoy rowing as a leisure activity, our dedicated team is here to support your journey.

Adding to our commitment to rowing, our Managing Director, Jason Howard, is set to participate in the World's Toughest Row in 2024 with his team "Lessons from a Boat." These four middle-aged men, driven by passion and purpose, aim to raise over £200,000 for Diabetes UK, The Last Straw, and Cancer Research UK. Their inspiring journey resonates with our ethos of pushing boundaries and promoting health and well-being. Learn more about their story and support their cause at Lessons from a Boat.
