Physiotherapy And Soft Tissue Injuries

A soft tissue injury occurs due to overuse of ligaments, muscles or tendons. Most cases of soft tissue injuries occur due to uncontrolled or unexpected movement. A Certain example of the same includes awkward stepping of foot and getting the ankles rolled. Soft tissue injury can also happen from overuse of muscles, tendons, and ligaments. The example of the same includes using the same hand for heavy lifting day after day. Certain soft structures of the body that are prone to injuries are Achilles tendons and calf muscle.

Difference Between a Sprain and a Strain:

A strain is defined as a trauma that occurs to the tendons or muscles because of overstretching. Tendons are soft in nature and are responsible tying the muscle and the bone together. Sprain, on the other hand, are trauma caused due to overstretching of the ligaments. There exist 3 severity levels: grade 1 is mild tenderness and minimal stretching of the soft tissue, grade 2 is a tear of fiber resulting in swelling and moderate pain, grade 3 is a rupture of the soft tissue resulting in sharp pain, deep swelling and immobility of the affected area.

Pre-medical Care:

Immediately after the injury, certain things such as total rest and immobility should be ensured, an ice pack should be applied to the structure, compression, and elevation should be ensured in order to avoid any major damage to the soft tissue. Certain things that hamper the healing process immediately after the injury include applying heat to the injured area, consumption of liquor, exercising or running with an injured condition and massaging the injured area.

Physiotherapy For Soft Tissue Injury:

  1. Pain Relief: The first task for a physician is to ensure that the level of pain comes down. Although this is the primary task of a medical practitioner, physiotherapists ensure that the pain does not aggravate to an unbearable level. They recommend certain movements and advice against some movements which could do harm to the injured structure.

  2. Full Structure Movement: The immediate goal of a physiotherapist is to ensure that the full movement of the injured structure is regained at the earliest. This includes identifying abnormalities, verifying the range of motion and suggests corrective exercises ensure that the full movement of the soft tissue can be regained without having to go through the hassle of a surgery.

  3. Muscle Strengthening: While the injured structure is in the process of healing, physiotherapists ensure that the surrounding muscles support the tendon and the ligament by binding well. This is done by suggesting very individualistic exercise for the muscle to hold up. It also negates the possibility of a recurring injury at the same place.

Here is a list of disorders, health conditions and complications, which may arise from the consumption of soft drinks:

Soft Tissue Fillers - Know More About It!

We all yearn for glowing and youthful skin like millions of other women out there. Yet we cannot help but face the loss of collagen and elasticity in our skin that comes naturally with age. However, with the help of modern technology and medical science, now you can fight against ageing using just a simple, non-surgical method - Soft Tissue Fillers - to achieve that glamorous skin you have always wanted.

When are Soft Tissue Fillers used?

Soft tissue filler therapy is generally used to treat the following conditions-

• Elevate and fill deep folds in the skin
• Fill shallow contours like sunken cheeks
• To facilitate fading of scars and imperfections
• To smoothen and soften wrinkles
• To fill lips and make them plumper in appearance

The procedure of the treatment

For this minimally invasive therapy, the doctor uses soft tissue fillers like Juvederm, Radiesse, Sculptra, Restylane and others. The doctor marks the injection points on the face and cleans with an antibacterial agent.

The filler infused with collagen stimulating chemicals is injected through a very small needle into the affected area. Some patients may experience a slight stinging or burning sensation. To counter that, a numbing agent like ice is used.

Interactions with Other Drugs

It is essential for the patient to inform the physician if she is using-

• Blood-thinning drugs
• Antibiotics
Allergy medicines
• Herbal supplements
• Sleeping pills

These may produce undesirable effects after the therapy.

The durability of the Therapy

Soft filler treatments are temporary in nature and their effect lasts for a period of 6-24 months. Some patients need consecutive maintenance sessions depending on their needs and requirements.

Side Effects of the Therapy

Patients have generally experienced one or all of the following reactions on the affected site-

Bruising
Swelling
• Redness

Typically, these symptoms may last for a week. If it continues to persist, one should seek immediate medical help.

Risks associated with Dermal Fillers

Like every other treatment, there are possibilities of risks in the case of dermal fillers as well. The product may move through the skin over time causing distortions in appearance. Cosmetic surgeons have also reported nerve damage and infections in the injected area. To avoid these negative repercussions it is advisable to undergo such treatments from reputed and trained professionals only.
