"When I got the injury, it was really hard not to be able to do what I enjoyed most. The injury got me to thinking about whether there´s anything I can do to help other players in the rehabilitation process, or preferably even earlier," says Andreas Ivarsson.
"It was just the right distance from home in Sätila and a good situation as a summer town on the west coast. Halmstand is a good student town. There are a rather large number of students in a pleasant town of just the right size, where it's easy to get around," says Andreas Ivarsson.
"Stress increases the risk of incurring injuries. Injuries obviously affect players negatively, but their teams' capacity to perform optimally can also be impaired. Stress can be caused by relationships with coaches, among team members, or situations in their private lives. In the weeks preceding an injury we can see elevated levels of stress," says Andreas Ivarsson.
"It's fun to be in close contact with sports, and it's largely up to me to structure my work. I have good colleagues here, and we all share an interest in sports issues. The sports mentality with'‘the roar' and the sense of community surrounding matches create a good climate: it's competent and impulsive," says Andreas Ivarsson.
