How Georgia Car Accidents can Cause Soft Tissue Injuries
Understanding Soft Tissue Injuries:
Soft tissue injuries involve damage to muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other connective tissues in the body. These injuries often occur due to the abrupt and forceful movements that can happen during a car accident, such as sudden stops, jerks, or impacts.
Common Soft Tissue Injuries from Car Accidents:
Whiplash: Whiplash is one of the most well-known soft tissue injuries associated with car accidents. It occurs when the neck and head are forcefully jerked back and forth, causing strain and damage to the neck’s soft tissues.
Sprains and Strains: Car accidents can lead to sprains (ligament injuries) and strains (muscle injuries), affecting various parts of the body, such as the back, shoulders, and limbs.
Contusions: Contusions, or bruises, can result from direct impacts during a car accident, leading to damage of the soft tissues under the skin.
Tendonitis: Tendonitis is inflammation of the tendons and can occur when tendons are stretched or injured during an accident.
