Whether it is a
car accident or a
slip and fall, people often experience injuries from such accidents. While more serious
injuries require emergency medical treatment, many people typically overlook
minor injuries, including soft tissue injuries such as whiplash, sprains,
and strains. Failing to treat a soft tissue injury in a timely manner
can be a substantial mistake.
The following are several reasons why soft tissue injuries should always
be taken seriously:
Soft tissue injuries can vary. Soft tissue injuries can either occur after a devastating accident or
developed over a long period of time, such as carpal tunnel syndrome from
typing all day long at work.
Symptoms are elusive. Symptoms of soft tissue injuries are not immediately visible. While you
may be able to feel your injury, you cannot rely on your senses to identify
all of your symptoms. Common symptoms of soft tissue injuries include
neck pain, back pain, tingling in the shoulders, blurry vision, and nausea.
Soft tissue injuries affect bodily functions. Soft tissue helps support your bones and muscles. When blood builds up
around soft tissue, it can result in permanent damage. Severe soft tissue
damage can have a negative impact on your ability to control your hands,
arms, legs, and feet.
Issues with liability. Soft tissue injury cases can be difficult to prove since it is can be
challenging to document the presence of pain and suffering.
