Med Sci Sports Exerc. 2017 May;49(5):1043-1054. doi: 10.1249/MSS.0000000000001247.

An updated consensus statement on psychological issues related to illness and injury among athletes has been developed by a collaboration of 6 organizations: American Academy of Family Physicians, American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, American College of Sports Medicine, American Medical Society for Sports Medicine, American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, and the American Osteopathic Academy of Sports Medicine. The goal of the statement is “to help the team physician improve the care of the athlete by understanding the relationship between psychological issues and athletic performance, illness, injury, treatment, and [return to play]”. The document covers psychological antecedents of athletic injuries, psychological reactions accompanying athletic injury, psychological issues of athletic illness and injury treatment and rehabilitation, psychological issues and return to play, select psychological issues in athletes (e.g., stress/anxiety, depression, disordered eating/eating disorders), and referring athletes to the mental health care network.
