Soft Tissue Injuries: Strains, Sprains, and Bruises

Soft tissue injuries affect muscles, ligaments, and tendons throughout the body. Car drivers and passenger frequently incur soft tissue injuries in accidents for various reasons, whether they are thrown from the car, or come into direct contact with vehicles.

Strains are injuries to muscles or tendons that typically result from overstretching or overexertion. Sprains, on the other hand, occur when ligaments are stretched or torn, most commonly impacting the ankles, wrists, or knees. Bruises (or contusions) happen when small blood vessels beneath the skin rupture, causing discoloration and tenderness. While they might seem like minor injuries compared to fractures or lacerations, they can have a profound effect on your quality of life.

Impacts of Soft Tissue Injuries

The impact of soft tissue injuries isn't always visible right after a car accident. You may feel a tingling sensation, stiffness, or mild pain initially, which might worsen over the following days or into weeks. These injuries can drastically limit your mobility, increase overall discomfort, and lead to the inability to partake in daily tasks or work.

Furthermore, professional medical treatment for these injuries is often a prerequisite for recovery. This might include physical therapy, surgeries, prescription medication, and repeated visits to medical specialists. All these add up, causing significant medical bills for the victim.
