Soft Tissue Injuries

Soft tissue injuries include structures that connect, support and surround bones. When people speak of injuries to soft tissue, they normally refer to injuries to muscles, ligaments or tendons. A soft tissue injury usually comes in the form of a sprain or strain of a tendon or muscle in the body. A soft tissue injury can be very painful and can require extensive healing time and physical therapy.
