I have previously myself undergone an ACL reconstruction and I am due to return to sport very soon however psychological factors are holding me back as I am fearing reinjury. Along with gaining knowledge for my personal journey, I am conducting research regarding the return to sport after an ACL reconstruction.
I would like to know:
1. After the ACL injury, do you believe you had a negative or positive psychological response to the injury and throughout your rehab?
2. Did you return to sport and did you find it a difficult process?
3. If you were offered with a booklet containing a rehab program, certain goals to be met at the end of each phase and coping strategies to deal with psychological factors brought about by this injury, would you use it to benefit your rehab and return to sport? (yes/no)
If you wish to consent me to utilise your information for research purposes, please let me know in your response.
Thanks in advance!
