Abstract

Abstract

Introduction: An athlete sustaining an injury is inevitable and an athlete with injury should attend rehabilitation (Rosa, Asperti, Helito, Demange, Fernandes, & Hernandez, 2014). Injury and rehabilitation vary and some athletes have better rehabilitation adherence than others. Previous rehabilitation experience and its influence on rehabilitation adherence has not previously been investigated. Therefore, the purpose of this research is to investigate the difference in rehabilitation adherence between athletes that have and have not previously experienced rehabilitation.

Setting: NCAA Division III University.

Data Collection: Institutional Review Board (IRB) approved archival data was provided by Dr. Granquist.

Participants: This study included 28 participants. The population consisted of females (n=14), males(n=13) and 1 unreported. Participants’ age ranged from 19 to 26. The participants identified as Hispanic or Latino, White, Asian, Black or African American, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander.

Variables: Previous rehabilitation experience: measured by close ended yes or no question. Adherence: measured by the Rehabilitation Adherence Measure for Athletic Training (RAdMAT; Granquist et al., 2010) and the Rehabilitation Overadherence Questionnaire (ROAQ; Podlog et al., 2013).

Results: There was a slight difference in rehabilitation adherence in those who had previously experienced rehabilitation and those who had not. In the RAdMAT score those with previous experience had slightly better adherence. In the ROAQ score those with no previous adherence slightly engaged in more over adherence. However, the difference was not statistically significant between first time rehabilitation experience and under adherence or in first time rehabilitation experience and over adherence.

Conclusion: Future research should investigate previous rehabilitation experience further with a larger sample size. The measures used should be utilized more in future adherence research.

Keywords: Previous rehabilitation experience, over adherence, under adherence, rehabilitation
