What are the predictors for development of LBP in rowers?

Are there predictors for development of low back pain in rowing?

This meta-analysis examines the incidence of low back pain in a rowing population, and assesses whether there are common predictors for the development of LBP. They reported a 12-month incidence of LBP in a rowing population to be up to 51% compared to 15% in the general population. The most common predictors for development of LBP when rowing were previous injury, training volume and a lack of pelvic rotation at either end of the rowing stroke.
