Insights from leaders in sport psychology
For athletes of all levels, suffering an injury can be some of the most challenging moments they face in their career. Physically treating the injury is only a part of the recovery. Some sports lend themselves to more benign injuries—broken bones and pulled muscles— with very clear trajectories for recovery. Other sports often involving speed or technical environments (think diving, gymnastics, racecar driving, skiing, pole vaulting, equestrian) can render injuries that can be quite medically complicated and psychologically devastating.
