Common Types of Soft Tissue Injuries in Automobile Accidents
The soft tissues include your muscles, ligaments, and tendons, which all work together to support your body and provide movement and range of motion. The force of an impact from an automobile accident can cause injuries to these tissues that are not usually life-threatening but affects your quality of life.
The most common types of soft tissue injuries in automobile accidents include:
- Strains: A strain is the stretching or tearing of your muscles and tendons. Strains vary in degree of severity but are generally painful and limit your mobility. Whiplash is a type of strain in the neck commonly associated with automobile accidents due to the jerking of the head from an impact.
- Sprains: A sprain is similar to a strain but it affects the ligaments instead of the tendons and muscles. Sprains in automobile accidents are common in the back since the torso can lunge in one direction from an impact.
- Contusions: Contusions are bruises to the muscles and soft tissue from a direct impact. Usually, contusions do not require medical treatment, but if they persist or grow worse over time, you should seek a healthcare professional for assistance.
