A soft tissue injury (“STI”) is the damage of muscles, ligaments and tendons throughout the body. Soft tissue injuries to the neck, back and shoulders commonly occur from a car accident. These injuries can result in pain, swelling and loss of function.
Soft tissue injuries can be difficult to diagnose and difficult to show by medical testing and imaging. It is thus very important to consult qualified professionals who can clinically assist and help to develop a proper treatment plan. Serious soft tissue injuries can occur in minor car accidents, and can last a long time/sometimes years.
