Abstract

Within the present chapter, the benefits of studying the media as a cultural site to expand sport injury psychology research are explored by bringing together research in sport sociology, sport communication, and sport psychology. To accomplish this purpose, what constitutes "sport media research" is outlined, followed by research in sport sociology concerning risk culture to contextualize sport media work on injury. Media research focusing on sport injury is then presented to show the value of studying the media as a sociocultural site of analysis and to learn more about sport injury meanings, athlete identities, and the implications. We conclude with future research avenues and centralize three critical discussion questions to spark interest on media work in sport injury psychology.
