Soft Tissue Injuries

Soft Tissue Injuries

Soft tissue injuries can range in severity from a simple Grade I strain/sprain to a severe Grade III tear of a muscle, ligament or tendon. Correct and timely assessment and management of soft tissue injuries reduce the amount of time you are restricted in your activities of daily living/ sport/ hobby, improve the tissue alignment during healing thus decreasing the likelihood of re-injury when you return to full activities.

Common conditions treated in this category include:

  • sprained/strained ankle or knee ligaments
  • tendinopathy of the hip joint
  • Achilles tendinopathy
  • shin splints
  • plantar fasciitis
  • rotator cuff strain/ tendinopathy of the shoulder
