College athletes are exposed to high injury risk. Research previously conducted suggests sport injuries can be reduced with psychological and Biofeedback skill training. This presentation will use comparative soccer positions to find the effects correlated to biofeedback and heart rate variability to measure overall peak performance compared to injury reports. Biofeedback examines the body to make determinations about physiology, skeletal trauma, nutritional imbalances, as well as emotional states that can affect the body or mind. The focus of a biofeedback analysis on UNCA soccer players is to promote deep breathing skills, muscle relaxation, emotion regulation, and increased reaction time; these skills can be an indicator of decreased injury risk. The expenditure data will be evaluated using Heart Math and BioPak Software. This presentation will propose a research design in a forthcoming study.
