Whiplash and Soft Tissue Injuries
Have you had a whiplash or soft tissue injury? Soft tissue refers to muscles, ligaments, tendons, and other connective tissues in the body. Soft tissue injuries are often diagnosed by doctors as sprains, strains, bruises, abrasions, and so on. A soft tissue injury can occur as a result of car accidents, commercial truck accidents, motor cycle accidents, slip and fall accidents, as well as other accidents. One common cause of a soft tissue injury to the neck is a violent back and forth — whiplash — motion of the neck in a rear-end collision. Soft tissue injuries usually cause significant pain to the neck and back.
It comes as no surprise that insurance companies routinely minimize the seriousness of soft tissue injuries and try to avoid paying fair and just compensation to the injured person. The common argument of the insurance companies is that there is not much damage to the car and therefore the person was not injured. If the damage to the car is significant, the insurance companies will argue that damage to the car has nothing to do with the injuries.
The fact is that soft tissue injuries, including whiplash injuries to the neck and back, can be a major source of pain and disability. Often these musculoskeletal injuries result in muscle spasms to the neck and shoulders that trigger severe headaches that can last for an extended periods of time. Emergency medicine physicians often treat these soft tissue injuries with prescription medications such as pain medications or anti-inflammatory medications. Follow up with a specialist such as an orthopedic surgeon, or physical therapist may also be required for soft tissue injuries.
