Soft Tissue Injury

First Coast Medical Center treats soft tissue injuries

Whiplash, car crashes or sudden falls often result in painful soft tissue injury. This is a challenging injury to the connective tissues that surround and support the bones and joints in your body, especially your spine. This includes muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, discs and nerves. Soft Tissue Injury can include sprains, strains, joint misalignment, muscle or ligament tears, bulging or herniated discs, pinched or inflamed nerves and other tissue damage.

Soft tissue injury may result in overstretching and sometimes tearing of the ligaments and muscles that support the joints. This can cause pain in your head, neck, back, chest, arms and hands, legs and feet, and general bruising and pain across the torso and seat belt areas. Other common symptoms include stiffness, numbness, tingling, headaches, dizziness, muscle spasms, restricted movement, restricted function, inflammation and swelling, possible discoloration and bruising. You may also experience fatigue, difficulty focusing, irritability and a hard time sleeping.

Soft tissue injury can be serious and result in an emergency medical condition that requires immediate, precise treatment by a qualified healthcare provider.
