The purpose of this investigation was to examine the temporal pattern of psychological responses of injtred athletes. Thirty five injured sports performers who were prevented from normal participation for a minim¡m of six weeks completed the Psychological Responses to Sports Injury Inventory (PRSII) across four time phases from injury onset to fulI recovery. A series of repeated measures Multivariate Analysis of Variance (MANOVAs) were used to examine the data, which enabled a greater understanding of the rate of changes that occr¡rred throughout rehabilitation. Findings wore generally as expected with the emotional responses experienced at each stage largely a firnction of time. Negative emotions such as devastation, restlessness, isolation, feeling cheated and dispirited decreased from the onset of injury to return to practice, whilst the positive response reorganisation increased throughout recovery. Theses changes however were not always at a constant rate. The findings offer a practical insight for athletes, coaches and physiotherapists in acknowledging that certain reactions are predictable at various time phases, therefore optimum rehabilitation can be planned to suit each stage of recovery.
