The injury to the musculoskeletal tissue is the most common sport injury observed in athletes.

This not only leads to break from regular practice or competition but also increases the likelihood of re-injury. Rehabilitation personnel are clamoring for in-depth information regarding the factors affecting the injured athletes’ recovery process and return to competition. Research conducted in the past has shed light on the mental issues affecting the healing process. Thus, the present review was undertaken to reflect the role of psychological factors in rehabilitation which serve as an important consideration for rehabilitation specialists’ and sport organizations in order to ensure that injured athlete are medically and psychologically ready to play.
