Soft Tissue Injury
Sprains and strains to the muscles, tendons and ligaments are also known as soft tissue injuries. One of the most common soft tissue injuries is whiplash, which is a type of cervical, thoracic or lumbar sprain.
Soft tissue injuries are often overlooked as they are invisible on X-rays and can take a few days to set in. Soft tissue injury can frequently cause debilitating pain.
If soft tissue injuries are left untreated and unresolved, the injured tissue can end up causing long-term chronic pain. Therefore, it’s important to see your physician after an accident and under his or her direction, seek treatment from a physiotherapist, massage therapist, chiropractor and/or acupuncturist.
If you have experienced a soft tissue injury as a result of an accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. Contact us today for a free consultation about your legal rights. Take the first step, and the Tell Del team will take care of the rest.
