What are soft tissue injuries?
Soft tissue injuries occur when there is trauma to the muscles, tendons and ligaments of the body.
Muscles enable the body to:
- have posture and movement
- enable the organs to work in the body such as the heart and digestive system and
- provide force and motion for the body
Tendons are tough, fibrous connective tissue which:
- connects muscles to bones allowing them to extend and flex with movement
- if a tendon becomes damaged, it is known as a strain
- in severe cases, the tendon may tear and require surgical re-attachment
Ligaments are made up of connective tissue which:
- connects bones to bones
- if a ligament becomes damaged, it is known as a sprain
Treating soft tissue injuries
Soft tissue injuries are treated by rest, ice to bring out bruising, compression and elevation to reduce swelling due to the effects of gravity. Gentle exercise can help as well.
For longer term rehabilitation, physiotherapy may be suggested to enable the body to regain full mobility and range of movement. Regular sessions of physiotherapy can allow muscles to develop tone and strength to help them heal quicker.
