One of the worst things to happen to an athlete is an injury. Let’s face it. No one likes to get hurt.
Injuries cause setbacks in sports careers and in some cases, may end an athletic career. Getting hurt will warrant unwanted feelings such as anger, denial, or sadness. What is important is for the athlete to overcome this setback. Most of the time, sports medicine is focused on physical rehab. However, coping with a sports injury requires the athlete to focus on both his/her mental and physical states. Recovery is a long and hard road to endure, but if approached correctly, the athlete will come out as a stronger, more confident, and resilient person.
