Abstract

Context: Rehabilitation adherence is increasingly recognized as an essential component of sports injury rehabilitation (Kolt et al., 2007) and during rehabilitation it is important for the patient to maintain psychological growth, social growth and physical growth (Wadey et al., 2012). Stress-related growth following a sports injury may result in a positive or negative outcome with the influence of rehabilitation. Stress-related growth is the ability to create positive growth from what can be thought of as a stressful experience, such as a sports injury. Currently, there is no data available on the relationship between patients’ adherence rates and stress-related growth. Objective: To examine the relationship between stress-related growth (SRG) and sport injury rehabilitation adherence (RA) in athletes who have completed rehabilitation for a sports injury. Design: Correlational. Setting: University. Participants: Fifteen participants completed the study. All participants had completed rehabilitation for a sport-related injury. Intervention: Following IRB approval and informed consent, data was collected on paper forms. Main Outcome Measures: Survey measures included the 16-item Rehabilitation Adherence Measure for Athletic Training (RAdMAT; Granquist et al., 2010) and the 29-item Stress-Related Growth Scale (SRG; Roesch et al., 2004). Results: Data analysis is still in progress; results will be shared upon completion.
