This study investigated whether mindfulness training can play a role in decreasing sport injury anxiety during rehabilitation. Injured participants (N=10) were recruited from different sports and quasi-randomly assigned to either a mindfulness intervention group (n=5) or control group (n=5). Both groups completed the Mindfulness Attention and Awareness Scale and the Sport Injury Anxiety Scale pre- and post-intervention. The intervention group also took part in social validation interviews when the intervention was completed. Mixed factorial ANOVA indicated that there was a significant treatment effect for both mindfulness (p<.01) and sport injury anxiety (p<.01). Additionally, Awareness, Acceptance and Action were the three super-ordinate themes elicited from the social validation interviews. Following an evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of this study, the theoretical significance of the results was assessed and the application of mindfulness training in decreasing sport injury-related anxiety during rehabilitation discussed.
