Abstract [en]

Previous research has shown that the risk of traumatic and/or overuse injury occurring in competitive floorball is relatively high during a playing season. Most injuries occur because the athletes are exposed to a combination of extrinsic and intrinsic risk factors such as physiological and psychological situations. The aim of this study is to describe athletes' experience of psychosocial risk factors preceding overuse injury. A qualitative study was conducted using a semi-structured interview guide and based on nine diagnosed and presently overuse injured men in the premier league floorball in Sweden during 2010. To uncover the underlying meaning in the transcribed interviews, a thematic content analysis was used. Several themes emerged in the data. Four of the main themes were: a) players experienced pain while competing and faced difficulties to separate normal/daily pain as warnings signals of an injury, b) both key-players and other players feared losing their position during rehabilitation time, c) a number of players stated concerns in the private area (partners) at the time the injury occurred, d) some athletes experienced an understanding communication climate within the team whilst others reported no acceptance from coaches when complaining about pain. The results from this study might explain why overuse injuries were sustained during all phases of the season, including preseason. It is further speculated that periods of rest and/or rehab during the injury period might lead to players experiencing mental pressure. Implications of the results will be discussed with athletes, coaches and sport psychology practitioners.
