We all know that injury plays a big role in every athlete’s life, but what happens after and the process concerned with coming back to sports is important. In this paper review, we try to connect injury and motivation among athletes and the demanding factors important for their return. With the help of scales such as RSSIQ, STAI XI, SIP 15, and SIRBS, we could come to conclusions about the correlations between injury and motivation. These scales also helped us find many important factors to consider, such as anxiety and what state the athlete sees them. Therefore, we can say that injury is dynamic, and the consequences should not be ignored. The people close and involved with the athlete should also be made aware of it and also their roles that could play a major part during recovery.
