One of the most common soft tissue injuries you can sustain is also one of the most commonly maligned and misunderstood. That injury is nick-named, whiplash.
You can receive a number of different soft tissue injuries. You might twist an ankle, knee, hip, wrist or elbow. You can receive neck or back injuries or whiplash. You might tear a muscle or the twist and damage your spine. The effects of a soft tissue injury can last a lifetime.
The initial injury is extremely painful, some times even crippling. But as time goes on, the tissues begin to mend. But the injuries can linger for months or years, and scarring and long-term effects are common in these serious injuries. And what’s worse, the victim is susceptible to future injury and complications.
Types of Soft Tissue Injuries
To fully understand soft tissue injuries, it is important to understand the different kinds of injuries that fall under this category:
When injured, the muscles, ligaments and tendons swell and contract as they go through the healing process. When this happens, the muscles twitch and convulse, causing the soft tissues to experience pain. These attacks can be short-lived, last several minutes or even months. Spasms might appear to go away completely, only to rear up periodically throughout the sufferer’s lifetime. A spasm attack can occur after periods of normal life activities and even re-injure the affected areas. And unfortunately, once injured, the tissues are forever more sensitive to further damage or injury.
