sup rehab: rebuild strength and snuff the pain of injury

SUP rehab uses gentle, core strength training to help alleviate pain and stress after injury though proven stand up paddle boarding rehabilitation techniques. Many who suffer back, shoulder and knee pain find improved balance and strength and subsequent pain relief through SUP’s rehabilitative qualities.

Of course, always consult your family doctor before participating in any sport for rehabilitation. Once you have the green light, head to the nearest SUP shop for a demo or rental with instruction and find out why this gentle activity is ideal for anyone dealing with the pain and stress of a physical injury. Because SUP is about strength and balance, it’s a great way to reintroduce both into your life safely and enjoyably.

According to SUP NTX "By using your body's natural balance as a stabilizer, stand up paddling only requires as much exertion as are able to put forth. And the water is a very forgiving surface, so you don't run the risk of re-injury like you possibly would by rehabbing on solid ground."
