Tendon or Ligament Damage Injury

Injuries to muscles, ligaments, and tendons are generally referred to as “soft tissue injuries”. These soft tissue injuries result from damage to one or more sensitive tissues in the body, and are typically associated with physical fitness or sports-related activities. However, these types of injuries can occur as the consequence of a variety of accidents, including motor vehicle accidents and slip-and-fall injuries.

Soft Tissue Tendon Muscle Ligament Damage

For individuals who suffer soft tissue injuries at the workplace, pursuing workers’ compensation claims may also be a crucial part of securing the necessary support and compensation. Many times, these injuries can be effectively treated with modern medical treatments; however, the expenses associated with these treatments can be very high, and can place great financial burdens on the victim and the victim’s family. Though the overall affect of ligament and tendon damage varies from person to person, some common ligament and tendon injuries include: tears, sprains, and strains. Serious soft tissue injuries that may require surgery include:

  • Torn knee
  • Tear of the medial meniscus
  • Torn lateral meniscus
  • Tear of posterior cruciate ligament
  • Torn anterior cruciate ligament
  • Tear of the shoulder
  • Torn rotator cuff
  • Adhesive capsulitis (frozen shoulder)
  • Nerve damage or neuropathy
  • RSN reflex sympathetic neuropathy
  • Radiculopathy
  • Restriction of motion
  • Sexual loss or dysfunction
