What is a Soft Tissue Injury?

Many of my clients have experienced soft tissue injuries following their accident.  But what is a soft tissue injury?  Briefly stated – for I am most definitely not a doctor – soft tissue injuries include injuries to the soft tissue areas of the body that include the epithelial, muscular, nervous, and connective tissues.

Soft tissue injuries include sprains, strains, subluxation (misalignment of spinal vertebrae), repetitive stress injury, carpel tunnel syndrome, etc.  These injuries can cause the body great pain and disability.  In my personal injury practice, many of my clients who have been involved in motor vehicle accidents, as well as other accidents, usually experience the pain and discomfort of soft tissue injuries.

Insurance adjusters try to downplay the impact and resulting pain of soft tissue injuries.  That is rubbish.  They know – assuming of course they have had a soft tissue injury – that it can be very debilitating.
