Concussion History and Kinesiophobia Study

The purpose of this study is to examine associations between an athlete's concussion history, perceived social support, perceived stress, and kinesiophobia (fear of movement) symptoms. A better understanding of these associations may help clinicians and researchers understand the importance of implementing mental health care into the rehabilitation process of recovering from a concussion.
