What is a Soft Tissue Injury?

The most common soft tissues injured are muscles, tendons, and ligaments. These injuries often occur during sports and exercise activities, but sometimes simple everyday activities can cause an injury.

Signs and symptoms Soft Tissue Injury-

Types of soft tissue injuries include:

Acute injury
Injuries that occur from a known or sometimes unknown incident. Signs and symptoms develop rapidly.

Bruise (contusion, cork)
Bruises are caused by a direct force applied to the body such as being kicked or making contact with a player and result in compression and bleeding into the soft tissue (hematoma).

Signs and symptoms: Swelling and/or discolouration.

Sprains are caused when the joint is forced beyond its normal range of motion resulting in overstretching and tearing of the ligament that supports the joint.

Signs and symptoms: Swelling, loss of power or ability to bear weight, possible discolouration and bruising and/or sudden onset of pain.

Strains are caused by muscles over-stretching or contracting too quickly, resulting in a partial or complete tear of the muscle and/or tendon fibres.

Signs and symptoms: Swelling, possible discolouration and bruising and/or pain on movement.

Overuse Injury
Overuse injuries occur as a result of repetitive friction, pulling, twisting, or compression that develops over time.

Signs and symptoms: Will develop slowly, inflammation, pain.


Soft Tissue Injury Treatment Options-

For acute soft tissue injuries, the RICE protocol is an important part of treatment:

  • Rest
  • Ice using cold packs for 20 minutes at a time
  • Compression with an ace wrap
  • Elevation above the level of the heart

Your doctor may also recommend anti-inflammatory medicine. For severe soft tissue injuries, you may need physical therapy to rehabilitate the muscle, tendon or ligament.

Chronic soft tissue injuries require a different treatment approach. This includes resting from the repetitive activity and taking anti-inflammatory medicines. Corticosteroid injections, splinting and range of motion exercises can also help. Sometimes, surgery is necessary to repair the injury.
