Avoid Injury


Although archery is a relatively safe sport, if performed with negligence or without attention to personal safety it can prove dangerous and lead to serious outcomes that may end even in hospital. The most common incidents involve hands, arms and shoulders, Some of these are fairly simple, such as blisters and string strikes to the forearm, but the rest have the potential to turn serious if not dealt with quickly.

You might avoid most of these injuries by perfecting your stance, working on your form, and following the advice given by experienced archers who have seen and learned a fair share of this harsh "injury business" by their own backs, arms and elbows - talk to a club/range coach as he/she would know where and how to guide you in order to keep you safe.
