Resilience is an individual's ability to adapt to stress and adversity that allows the individual to tolerate their quality of life in a dynamic process (Garcia-Dia et al., 2013; Masten & Obradovic, 2006). However, resilience seems to be more than just “tolerating” life; it is “reacting positively” to adversity. According to a psychologist named Boris Cyrulnik, modern neuroscience techniques have confirmed that the absence of sensory stimulation during periods of maximal synaptic expansion provides the substrate for a subsequent mood disorder (Cyrulnik, 1992; 2005). He argued that people can use resilience in every difficult circumstance, whether that could be a physical or psychological challenge. It is also important to understand how those people can triumph over adversity, especially in the case of children reared in orphanages and children who are abused, due to their ability to react positively to challenging situations. The characteristics of resilience are most often identified within the context of disruptive life events in the area of psychiatry and social behavior (Holaday & McPhearson, 1997); however, the emphasis can also be applied to musculoskeletal injuries.
