Abstract [en]

A substantial quantity of research has been focusing on predictors and interventions in the sports injury prevention area. It is suggested that stress and psychosocial factors may predict sports injuries. However, many athletes remain uninjured during their athletic careers. Consequently it is of interest to know more about the psychosocial factors that preserve athletes uninjured. More specific, the objective was to investigate differences in stress and recovery strategies among the uninjured and injured players. In total, 401 non-professional male (n=203, age m=23.8, SD=4.56) and female (n=198, age m=21.5, SD=3.81) high level floorball players in Sweden completed a questionnaire regarding stress, sleep, mood and recovery strategies before the floorball season. The teams’ medical staff reported prospectively injuries during the season. 218 of the players (n=114 males, n=104 females) remained uninjured after the season (54%). The statistical analysis showed no significant differences between the uninjured and injured players regarding stress inside and outside sport, sleep, mood or recovery strategies. Although, previous researches suggest that stress and psychosocial factors may predict sports injuries, this was not shown in this population. Additional intrinsic factors, such as complementary psychosocial factors (e.g. resilient communication skills) might influence the player’s chance to avoid injury. It is of interest to evaluate uninjured players coping strategies and not just focusing on at-risk athletes in the future prevention research. This line of research has the potential to detect factors related to the salutogenesis of injury. Thus, provide important information to physiotherapist in the care of injured athletes.
