Mackersie, JohnATHLETES’ PERSPECTIVES ON PSYCHOLOGICAL REHABILITATION FROM SPORT INJURY IN RELATION TO THEIR RESTORATION NETWORKS
Master of Science in Sport Studies, Miami University, 2010, Physical Education, Health, and Sport Studies
This paper examines the role of social support and its affect on athletic injury rehabilitation. The study utilized a semi-structured interview structure on six previously injured Division I athletes. Results were analyzed using qualitative methodology looking for emergent themes and sub-themes. It was originally thought a social network of supporting roles was crucial for injured athletes’ recovery. However, with the current results, it is now evident that social networks are but a small fraction of the process. This study concludes with future research directions.
