Ten Pin Bowling Injuries
Ten Pin Bowling Injuries
While some very active sports people would believe that ten pin bowling doesn’t cause too many injuries, it does.
Let’s think about… you have a very heavyweight hanging off your fingers that you swing back and forwards before sliding in slippery shoes during your delivery. Plus,. you have to lift up that heavy ball many times during a game.
Based on this quick analysis, you are likely to experience any injuries associated with lifting eg back, neck, legs and arm. Plus your wrist and arm in under load during the arm swing and delivery. You are also required to bend and slide without falling, which can also sometimes happen.
Preventing Ten Pin Bowling Injuries
Here’s are a list of ten pin bowling tips that will help your prevent injury:
- Always warm-up with a few body stretches before bowling.
- Focus on your legs, back, neck and arm.
- Make sure your shoes are clean and dry before bowling. they need to slide.
- Pick up the ball with two hands and bent knees and hips rather than your back. This will save your wrists and back!
- Take care not to slide your hands between bowling balls and someone else’s or you might smash your fingers.
- Cradle the ball in your non-bowling arm and walk to your starting position.
- After getting your feet in place, insert your fingers (fingers first, thumb last).
- Deliver the ball and don’t fall over!

Common Ligament Injuries
Ligament injuries are common in the human body, often causing pain, discomfort, and limitations in mobility.
Various body parts are prone to ligament injuries, such as the knee, ankle, shoulder, wrist, hand, and spine. Among the most prevalent are knee ligament injuries, which include ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) and PCL (Posterior Cruciate Ligament) injuries, as well as MCL (Medial Collateral Ligament) and LCL (Lateral Collateral Ligament) sprains.
In addition, ligament injuries can affect other areas, such as the shoulder, leading to AC (Acromioclavicular) joint injuries and dislocated shoulders. Wrist and hand ligament injuries, including thumb and finger sprains, are also common. Furthermore, ligament injuries can occur in the spine, resulting in back and neck sprains and conditions like "text neck" and whiplash. Understanding these common ligament injuries is essential for prevention, early diagnosis, and effective treatment, enabling individuals to regain their functionality and resume their daily activities.
