With large numbers of individuals participating in rehabilitation every year, new ways of aiding patients throughout the process, besides just the traditional practice which focuses strictly on the physical side of rehab, are being researched. In this study, participants will complete questionnaires that will allow for interpretation of their perceptions on psychological interventions during injury rehabilitation. Participants are recruited from local Kalamazoo physical therapy clinics and they vary based upon age, due to the fact that the majority research thus far has focused strictly on college aged athletes. It was predicted that participants in the elderly age group and participants in the college athlete’s age group would have similar perceptions of psychological interventions during injury rehabilitation with a hope that the intervention strategies could serve the greater population as a whole.
