Missouri Muscle Tear and Sprain and Strain Lawyers
The body is composed of what is commonly referred to as hard tissue and soft tissue. A soft tissue injury results from damage to muscles, ligaments and tendons in the body. A resulting soft tissue injury can be caused a single traumatic blow or jerk or from repetitive use over time. A significant soft tissue injury can produce significant pain and disability. Despite the pain that a victim of a soft tissue injury experiences, a soft tissue injury often does not appear on diagnostic testing such as on an MRI.
Whiplash Injury is a soft tissue injury caused by the head and neck being projected forward and then back in one traumatic movement. Whiplash can result in damage to ligaments and muscles in the neck.
Common forms of soft tissue injuries include strains which are stretches or teases of ligaments in the body. A strain is an injury to muscle or tendon connected to the bones in the body. A contusion is a deep bruise causing pooling of blood internally within the body. A subluxation is a result of misalignment of vertebrae within the spine resulting in irritation of nerves and symptoms of pain throughout the body.
Recovery and disability resulting from a soft tissue injury can vary based upon the circumstances and the treatment that is received following an injury. While soft tissue injuries are sometimes hard to diagnose, the resulting pain and disability is certainly real to victims of such injuries. Obtaining sufficient and proper medical treatment and physical therapy is the key to recovery from a soft tissue injury.
