One of the most common types of injuries after a car crash is soft tissue damage. Soft tissue injuries can happen from a fall or any number of accidents. While these injuries are not life-threatening, they can be extremely painful. Soft tissue injuries occur under the skin and can take a long time to heal. During this time, the damaged tissue can be sore and even limit your movement. These injuries damage the muscles, tendons, or ligaments, which is known as the “soft tissues” of the body. Tendonitis, whiplash and other strains are common soft tissue injuries. These injuries can range in severity, and its best to have your doctor to determine the best course of treatment for you.
The symptoms of soft tissue damage can make your life much more difficult. Limited mobility and pain can make everyday activities a serious strain on your body. Often, you’ll need to take off of work in order to let these injuries heal and to prevent them from getting any worse. Depending on the severity, your doctor might even recommend rehabilitative therapy or prescribe something to help the swelling. Other things that might help is applying heat or cold to the affected area.
In the case of a car crash, victims often suffer numerous injuries. Whiplash, and being jerked around the car during the collision can cause severe soft tissue damage. However, you might not notice the injures right after the collision. It could take anywhere from hours to days to notice that something is not right. That’s why after any accident, you should be checked out by your doctor as soon as possible. The sooner you find out something is wrong, the sooner you can start to treat it, and prevent more damage from happening.
