Submission Title

Physical Injury and Mental Health in Division III Collegiate Athletes

Location

Jereld R. Nicholson Library: Grand Avenue

Subject Area

Health, Human Performance and Athletics

Description

Physical injuries are an inevitable component of competitive collegiate athletics, and many measures are used to prevent and rehabilitate those injuries. However, less attention has been paid to the effects that these injuries may have on the everyday life of athletes outside of sport. Physical injuries may be associated with psychological and emotional issues that may interfere with the daily lives of athletes. In order to address these potential issues, more baseline information regarding these problems is necessary so that steps can be made to create standardized prevention and intervention methods that take into account both psychological and physical barriers to recovery from injury. The purpose of this study was to survey injured and non-injured collegiate athletes to identify trends in mental health associated with injury.
