Muscle/ Tendon /Ligament Injuries

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

Sprains , strains and contusions, as well as bursitis, are common soft tissue injuries that can occur in most parts of your body.

Cause

Soft-tissue injuries fall into two basic categories: Acute injuries and Overuse injuries.

  1. Acute injuries are caused  by a sudden trauma, such as a fall, twist or blow to the body.
  2. Overuse injuries occur gradually over time, when an athletic or other activity is repeated so often, areas of the body do not have enough time to heal between occurances. Tendinitis and Bursitis are common causes of soft tissue overuse injuries.
