What You Need to Know About Your Soft Tissue
Acute trauma to nerve roots and peripheral nerves lead to
muscle soreness, tenderness, swelling, stiffness and tightness.
Our main concern is that you receive both a comprehensive
evaluation and competent management of your soft tissue injury.
Unfortunately, clients/patients may remain undiagnosed and
untreated, since many diagnostic approaches may reveal no
abnormalities. Early diagnosis and management of such muscle
symptoms due to nerve root and peripheral nerve trauma can
alleviate discomfort and prevent permanent deformities and
We strongly recommend that you receive medical treatment
for your soft tissue injury from a medical provider experienced
in diagnosing and treating such injuries. A competent medical
center has board certified physicians on staff, and has close
working relationships with other medical specialists, including
physiatrists (doctors specializing in rehabilitation medicine),
neurologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists,
orthopaedists, plastic surgeons and radiologists.
The goal of the medical provider is to identify symptoms
and signs of nerve root and peripheral nerve dysfunction,
especially those involved in acute and chronic blunt trauma
arising from car accidents, work-related accidents, sports
injuries or other trauma.
It is critical that proper diagnostic and treatment methods
for nerve root and peripheral nerve trauma are used. This
enables early intervention to alleviate symptoms, increase
quality of life and prevent chronic discomfort. It is for
you to decide which doctors you treat with to manage your
injuries. Don’t be afraid to ask your doctor questions,
and be certain to follow their advice, particularly as it
pertains to physical therapy and referrals to medical specialists.
Too often we see permanent discomfort resulting from clients
being non-compliant with their doctor’s recommendations.
Proper rehabilitation takes time and effort on your part.
