In a car accident, our body can suffer different injuries and physical damage that can be very painful. No matter how minor or serious the crash may be, our body is always exposed to the force of the impact and the consequences that it can have.

One of the most common injuries during a car accident are soft tissue injuries. A large part of our body is made up of soft tissues, these are all body tissues, organs, and spaces located between the bones and the skin, including muscles, nerves, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. Its function is to keep the body mobile and agile, protecting bones and joints.

Sudden trauma to the body during an accident can damage these tissues, causing pain, swelling, bruising, and loss of movement in the part of the body that suffered the injury.

Types of soft tissue injuries

Since soft tissue is found throughout our bodies, an injury can occur anywhere in the body. Different types of soft tissue injuries include:

· Strains and sprains

· Bruises

· Whiplash

· Lacerations

· Compressed nerves

· Hernias

· Bruises

· Swelling

· Rotator Cuff Tear, among others

Dangers of soft tissue injuries

Soft tissue injuries can go unnoticed or be considered minor injuries by most people, when in fact, some of them can even be fatal.

If during an accident a person suffers internal bleeding, which is obviously not visible, and timely medical attention is not provided, the damaged organ could develop severe bleeding that could cost the victim their life.

On the other hand, if the damaged tissue begins to compress the surrounding nerves, the nerves could be damaged, die, and the muscle that it enervates can stop working, losing the movement of that part of the body in its entirety. This type of spinal nerve injury can permanently immobilize you or cause your wrist to stop working.

Pain in the neck or back could be a sign of fractured vertebrae, which, if left untreated, can cause serious damage to the spinal cord. There is no cure for spinal cord injury, and it can also cause paralysis or even death.
