Description: The term soft tissue injury usually refers to injuries to muscles, ligaments and tendons. It excludes fractures but also more severe injuries such as significant haemorrhage, crush syndrome, head injuries or acute spinal cord compression.
Swift and appropriate action is required to facilitate rapid and complete recovery whilst inappropriate management may be counterproductive.
