Psychology of Sport Injury

Lecture for Willamette University, Salem, Oregon - Department of  Exercise & Sport Science
October 8/2012

Dr. John Heil

To the athlete, injury results in the loss of the opportunity to participate in a high valued activity and is a threat to continued success at sports. This is most problematic where injury is severe, or the process of rehabilitation is long or complicated. Even relatively mild injury may have a significant impact on the athlete when its timing is such that is undermines competitive success, for example, if it occurs immediately prior to a key competition.
