Abstract

Objective: The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between psychosocial factors (self-efficacy and social support) in explaining adherence to injury rehabilitation with pre-professional dancers in Hong Kong. Previous research looking into psychosocial factors such as self-efficacy and social support, and its impact on adherence to injury rehabilitation, was mostly done in the sports field, which indicated that higher levels of self-efficacy and social support were associated with better adherence to a rehabilitation program. However, only handful of research has been conducted in the dance environment, especially in the Asia dance field. Therefore, it is relevant and essential to have a preliminary understanding on the psychosocial factors that may facilitate injury rehabilitation adherence among Hong Kong preprofessional dancers.

Method: Data was collected via an online survey. The survey included questions on participants demographics, injury and rehabilitation experience, injury rehabilitation adherence, self-efficacy, and social support.

An independent t-test, Mann Whitney – U test and one-way ANOVA analysis; correlation and multiple regression analysis were conducted in this study to investigate the differences between gender, dance stream, and injury type in all variables, as well as the relationship between psychosocial factors and injury rehabilitation adherence.

Results: There was a positive relationship between psychosocial factors (selfefficacy and social support) and injury rehabilitation adherence among preprofessional dancers in Hong Kong. In addition, significant differences in gender, dance streams and injury types were found among psychosocial factors and injury rehabilitation adherence. Women scored significantly higher than men among all psychosocial factors (self-efficacy (p
