Within soccer, the burden of sports injury is high. 1 At the same time, return to sport outcomes for players sustaining injury are often poor (eg, rates of return to preinjury sport, return to preinjury performance, and reinjury). 2 Ideally, a player should only return to sport when they are both

Return-to-sport decisions are an important component of sports medicine practice and both researchers and clinicians have attempted to develop evidence-based models to facilitate positive outcomes. 1 , 2 However, the effectiveness of current rehabilitation and return-to-sport practices should be

return-to-sport following injury is vital to future sport participation and injury prevention. Emery’s 6 literature review on sport-related injury concluded that injury prevention in youth sport is becoming a public health priority. Early specialization along with poor management of sport participation

procedure and clinical outcomes improve following rehabilitation, athletes often fail to achieve optimal functional recovery, 3 and up to 30% of reconstructed athletes sustain a second ACL rupture within 2 years of return to sport. 4 Single-leg hop tests are the gold standard for measuring functional

Key Points ▸ To date, little has been reported on the frequency, management, and outcomes of abdominal muscle injuries in elite overhead athletes. ▸ This case series is to our knowledge the first study to report on the rates of abdominal injury in overhead athletes and their return to sport at a

return to sport (RTS). 4 , 5 Traditionally, a bone–patellar tendon–bone (BPTB) graft has been the preferred method of ACLR, 6 though systematic reviews over the past 10–15 years have demonstrated the lack of superiority of BPTB over hamstring autografts, 7 with less postoperative complications

perceived as an innocuous injury but failure to complete supervised rehabilitation likely increases the risk of reinjury and facilitates development of long-term residual symptoms. Within sporting populations, LAS patients often receive care but an emphasis on rapid return to sport (RTS) exists. For example

It is argued in self-determination theory that the motivation underlying behavior has implications for health and well-being independent of the behavior itself.


To examine associations between athlete motivations for returning to sport after injury and perceived psychological return-to-sport outcomes.


A correlational survey design was employed to obtain data in Canada, Australia, and England.


Elite and subelite athletes (N = 180) with injuries requiring a minimum 2-month absence from sport participation.

Main Outcome Measures:

Participants completed an inventory measuring perceptions of motivation to return to sport from a serious injury and psychological return-to-sport outcomes.


Correlational analyses revealed that intrinsic motivations for returning to competition were associated with a positive renewed perspective on sport participation. Conversely, extrinsic motivations for returning to sport were associated with increased worry and concern.


The motivation underlying return to sport might play an important role in return-to-sport perceptions among elite and subelite athletes.
