A soft tissue injury (STI) is the damage of muscles, ligaments and tendons throughout the body. Common soft tissue injuries usually occur from a sprain, strain, a one off blow resulting in a contusion or overuse of a particular part of the body. Soft tissue injuries can result in pain, swelling, bruising and loss of function. A sprain is a type of acute injury which results from the stretching or tearing of a ligament

MANAGEMENT of soft tissue injuries of the neck requires prompt evaluation and an. .Concomitant intracranial or spinal injury is seen in 30% of cases.

MANAGEMENT of soft tissue injuries of the neck requires prompt evaluation and an aggressive approach toward repair of the damaged structures. Emphasis has been placed upon the early exploration of cervical wounds. 1 Frequently, the appearance of the wound is unimpressive and the significance of the damage does not become apparent immediately. Of all relevant injuries in the head and neck region, soft tissue injuries make up the largest proportion (60%), while injuries to the face are seen three times more often than injuries to the neck.

Most spinal cord injuries result from motor vehicle crashes, falls, assaults . Almost all people with a spinal cord injury have an injury to the spine.

Most spinal cord injuries result from motor vehicle crashes, falls, assaults, and sports injuries. Symptoms, such as loss of sensation, loss of muscle strength, and loss of bowel, bladder, and sexual function, may be temporary or permanent. Magnetic resonance imaging (to assess injury to soft tissue, spinal cord, or ligaments) and/or computed tomography (to assess injury to bone) is the best way to identify the injury. Treatment involves immobilization of the spine, drugs to relieve symptoms, sometimes surgery, and usually rehabilitation.

A spinal cord injury (SCI) is damage to the spinal cord that causes temporary or permanent changes in its function. Symptoms may include loss of muscle function, sensation, or autonomic function in the parts of the body served by the spinal cord below the level of the injury.

Soft tissue injuries generally refer to the spine: the neck and back. 6. Nerves and discs are the anatomical structures we most often refer to when discussing spinal injuries. Less frequently involved are ligaments and muscles. The spinal cord is approximately 1½ feet long, round, slightly thicker than a pencil, and goes from the base of the brain to the tail bone (sacrum). It supports the body. In addition to allowing the body to remain upright and flex and twist, the spinal cord acts like a large electrical cable with smaller cables (nerves) running inside it, and branching out into the arms, legs and other parts of the body; imagine, if you will, a tree.

Spinal cord injuries may result from damage to the vertebrae, ligaments . Check out these best-sellers and special offers on books and newsletters from Mayo Clinic. The Mayo Clinic Diet Online.

Spinal cord injuries may result from damage to the vertebrae, ligaments or disks of the spinal column or to the spinal cord itself. A traumatic spinal cord injury may stem from a sudden, traumatic blow to your spine that fractures, dislocates, crushes or compresses one or more of your vertebrae. It may also result from a gunshot or knife wound that penetrates and cuts your spinal cord.

Hyperflexion sprain injuries are injuries to the soft tissues of the spine without fracture. On x-rays this can only be suspected when there is angulation or translation MR will demonstrate subtle injuries to the soft tissues

Hyperflexion sprain injuries are injuries to the soft tissues of the spine without fracture. On x-rays this can only be suspected when there is angulation or translation MR will demonstrate subtle injuries to the soft tissues. On the left images of a patient who has been in a car accident and complained of neck pain. The x-rays were normal and there were no neurological symptoms. First study the images on the left. Then continue reading. The findings are: Edema in the posterior soft tissues indicating a hyperflexion injury.

Spinal cord injury can cause partial or complete loss of sensation and function (paralysis) below the injury, and . EMTs provide immediate urgent care that may be life-saving and help ensure your safe arrival to the hospital

Spinal cord injury can cause partial or complete loss of sensation and function (paralysis) below the injury, and nerve dysfunction throughout your body depending on where the injury occurred. For example, injuries in your upper cervical spine (neck) can cause nerve dysfunction in your diaphragm, and injuries above your lumbar spine (low back) can cause nerve problems in your abdomen. EMTs provide immediate urgent care that may be life-saving and help ensure your safe arrival to the hospital. They check your vital signs, monitoring your breathing, and stabilize your spine with a rigid neck brace and backboard for transport in the ambulance.
