Methods: This study is a literature review study that took sources from online and offline literature. The literaturein form of books and journal articles that discuss the sport rehabilitation phase. Results: From the search results, there are not many books and articles that specifically stated that there are phases in sports injury rehabilitation. Some sources are still more specific in a case or only show interventions that can be an option in the application of sports injury management regardless of phase.

Typical sports rehabilitation phases are phases one to four with a focus on reducing pain in phase 1, increasing flexibility in phase 2, returning and increasing strength, endurance, agility, balance and proprioception in phase 3 and returning to sports in phase 4.
