Injury Rehabilitation Overadherence: Preliminary Scale Validation and Relationships with Athletic Identity and Self-Presentation Concerns
Rehabilitation and Therapy | Sports Sciences
Evidence suggests that nonadherence to rehabilitation protocols may be associated with worse clinical and functional rehabilitation outcomes. Recently, it has been recognized that nonadherence may not only reflect a lack of rehabilitation engagement but that some athletes may ‘‘overadhere’’ to their injury-rehabilitation regimen or risk a premature return to sport. Presently, no measure of overadherence exists, and correlates of overadherence and risking a premature return to sport remain uncertain.
