dc.description.abstractAthletic injury is a devastating and common occurrence that can happen in any sport. Injured athletes often require resources and treatment in order to be able to return to the field of play. Athletes become more involved with physical and mental treatment as the length of recovery time increases. Recent research suggests that there may be personality traits that directly correlate to athletic injury. In this proposed study we investigated if there was any correlation between personality traits and recovery time; more specifically, the personality traits of interest in this study included the locus of control, hardiness, social support, competitive trait anxiety and the big five personality. Assessing these personality traits helped determine if there are differences between physical and psychological factors associated with ready to return to play. Participants for the study were recruited from all scholarship-based sports at Texas State University. The anticipated results indicated that athletes with a higher internal locus of control tend to recover faster than others.
