Phsycological Effects of Sports Injuries
The continued practice of physical activity and sport, has been related with better moods and self-efficiency. This study analyses the consequences on mood disturbance and perception of physical ability that result from an interruption in training as a result of an injury. Significant differences were found in these dependent variables between the injured and non-injured athletes. A significant correlation was also found between self-efficiency and anger at the onset of injury.
