A group of experts from Europe, North America, and Australasia developed a consensus statement regarding the prevalence of rowing-related low back pain compared with other sports and the general population. They also discussed how to prevent and manage rowing-related low back pain. The authors provide a summary box that lists the risk factors associated with rowing-related low back pain. The manuscript includes a figure to highlight key assessments and management strategies from initial evaluation to full return to sport.
