Furthermore, pain is also another major factors always associated with these negative emotions. Recent research data has shown some evidence that proclaim pain may have an impact on performance. “Movements influence the way we experience pain, and pain alters the way we control movement”. All these negative impacts on performance of motor control may influence the rehabilitation of someone with chronic pain. Therefore, people trying to manage their emotions(fear and anxiety)or presence of fear-related pain in order to have a higher effectiveness of motor control.
Cognitive Appraisal Many times, an athlete’s psychological response to an injury is impacted greatly on their perception of their injury, rather than the actual injury itself. An athlete’s interpretation of their injury can be defined by the term cognitive appraisal (Brewer, 1994). The cognitive appraisal of an athlete’s injury can affect stress levels significantly by either lowering or heightening them. For example, an athlete can either perceive an injury as a threat or a challenge, and therefore will express either more or less emotional disturbance (Chung, 2012). Type of Injury Besides the mechanism of an injury, injuries can be distinguished by their severity.
Those people that are able to control these emotions have undergone series of breathing techniques and relaxation exercises. Having mental breakdowns are more likely to destroy an athlete during play rather than physical loss of breath or endurance. When these spurs occur, an individual's image of them self is destroyed. When an athlete does not maintain positive imagery of themselves, play begins to go downhill.
Athletic staleness and burnout is a big problem for many of today’s athletes whether they are at the amateur or professional level. The good thing about this problem that ends up in total and complete physical and emotional exhaustion is that it can be recognized when it is taking place. It can also be treated if the recognition comes at too late of a stage of the onset of staleness and burnout. But the best remedy for athletic staleness and burnout is prevention of it in the first place. There are three different models that have been used to explain the causes of athlete burnout.
Anxiety results from the athlete’s perception that he/ she is not good enough for the particular situation, which will cause stress (Edward and Hardy). An early model that attempted to explain the relationship between arousal and performan... ... middle of paper ... ...athletes. And because of the obvious problems with anxiety there have been a few key ways that show how treatment helps athletes out. So in final, after years of research on the effects of anxiety and treatment it is imperative that athletes get help from a professional in order to obtain maximum performance.

“Choking” occurs as a result of unregulated levels of stress, anxiety, and arousal. Whether that is in beginner sports or even professional athletes, maintenance of these emotions is crucial to performance. With proper implementation, coaches can prevent this occurrence by integrating proper techniques in practice to decrease the risk of “choking”.
Also, medical science seems to recognize a mind and body connection, in which the emotion may affect people’s physical health. These effects can cause fatigue, aches and pain. An example of this occurring effect is when having a fear over something that will give an individual nightmare, it causes for them to have headaches and a less time of sleep, which causes for the individuals to not have enough energy to perform in their daily lives. To summarize, fear can affect a person’s physical ability by sabotaging the brain and give them pain to perform any physical
There are other psychological factors such as the low self-esteem or the social support which are directly related to the mind of a sport. Moreover, some research has found that psychological characteristics of the great athlete have consequences on the quality of their performance (Krane and Williams, 2006). For example, in football when a player is about to shot a penalty, he often puts himself under pressure, his members are going to react with this anxiety, and can lead him to fail. What happen in the brain during a sport performance has so a direct impact on the body which can react from a negative psychological
According to Kremer and Moran (2008) “one reason why we tend to get uptight before competition could be related the pressure of being observed. Spectators of any sport are constantly evaluating the skills of the athletes they are watching, and this can be extremely daunting to those who are not trained to deal effectively with this pressure.” Not wanting to fail in a match or competition can also heap more pressure on an individual when realise they are being watched and the anxiety and stress increases to
Arthritis is present in about half of the patients with ECM, occurring within weeks to months following onset and lasting as long as 2 years. Early in the illness, migratory inflammation of many joints (polyarthritis) without joint swelling may occur. Later, longer attacks of swelling and pain in several large joints, especially the knees, typically recur for several years. The knees commonly are much more swollen than painful; they are often hot, but rarely red. Baker's cysts (a cyst in the knee) may form and rupture.
