This qualitative investigation study assessed three collegiate athletes rehabilitation from injury to uncover the temporal nature of stressors and coping strategies during the recovery process. This addressed a gap in the literature and followed guidelines but linking stress, stress source and coping strategy. It used three interviews at early, mid and late periods of recovery to achieve its aims. The stressors experienced during the first phase of rehabilitation were mainly associated with enforced behaviour due to the injury such as loosing contact with team mates and not being able to work. This changed to the mid phase with frustration from social comparison and slowness of rehabilitation featuring highly. The final stage was more associated with fear of re-injury and fear of not re-gaining previous performance levels. This change is stressors were also reflected in the coping strategies. The early stage was associated with more isolation/avoidance coping strategies, whereas, the latter stages of the recovery process were associated far more pro active coping strategies; such as distraction and seeking re-assurance.
