A Soft Tissue Injury is an injury to the ligaments, tendons or muscles in your body, essentially anything that is soft. These injuries often occur as a result of blunt force trauma or unnatural sudden body movements, depending on the trauma a soft tissue injury can occur immediately or over a period of time. Some examples of soft tissue injuries are: sprains, strains, contusions, tendonitis and bursitis. Those who have been in a mild-moderate auto accident often end up with soft tissue injuries. If you sore or unwell after an auto accident, it’s important to call your doctor and get a check up to ensure that what you may believe is a soft tissue injury isn’t something worse.
