Psychological stress has a huge impact on the body. The researchers in this study found that players were 3.19 times more likely to have an injury restriction during weeks of high academic stress. If you know a stressful week is coming up, or you have an acute stress like a death in the family, the loss of a job, a mental breakdown, etc, be sure to communicate with your coach. A good coach can help prevent injury by adapting the plan and helping you through it.
