How can I heal arm & hand injuries to soft tissue & nerves?
soft tissue injuries can be healed by cold on for 20 minutes off for 20 on for 20 off for 20 for as long as you can keep doing this. Nerve injuries on the other hand may or may not improve. These injuries should be seen by a dr to determine if permanant injury has resulted or not. if there is deep bruising that doesn't heal a dr trip is advised. (+ info
How long for a soft tissue injury to heal?
I had a fall onto hard ground and have hurt my ribs. The doctor advised me that I probably hadn't broken a rib and it was most likely a soft tissue injury. This was over a week ago and I'm still getting quite a bit of pain.
If it's a soft tissue injury should it not be better by now? How long does it usually take for these things?
My Mum's old adage is that anything bruised will take 10 days - don't look for any improvement before then. If it's a biggie (bruised rib, rather than bruised tissue) it will take longer. It also depends on the depth of the muscle and exactly which one you've injured - if it's a small muscle a couple of weeks would be fine, but if it's one of the deeper muscles it could even take months.
Try Arnica - you can buy it in a cream that you rub on, or as little pillules that you swallow. It's a homeopathic remedy, but they have it in most pharmacies now, and it helps to reduce bruising.
If after about 2 weeks it feels as painful as it did to begin with (bearing in mind that the longer you are in pain the worse it feels as it wears down your resistance), then go to your Doctor again for a check-up, or even take yourself to A&E for an x-ray if you're really worried. (+ info

How can I accelerate healing of a soft tissue injury?
Due to improper posture sitting at the computer, I injured soft tissue in the back of my thigh. I have gone to physical therapy and had an MRI done. Doctors tell me that the wound has healed, but I still feel an incrementally stinging sensation when sitting. In fact, the pain has gone down significantly after over a year has passed. Today, the pain is confined locally to just below my left cheek around the hamstring.
I sit on a tempur-pedic pillow, regularly stretch and exercise and massage the area. Still, I feel this mild, yet uncomfortable sensation when sitting.
Would anyone have suggestions about how to accelerate the healing of whatever is causing this pain?
try stretching it will help alot. but dont try to stretch too hard because it will actually make it worse (+ info

Soft tissue injuries. Has anyone had sucess with ART for muscle adhesion pain?
I'm not sure if my chiro. used the exact technique, but she used to apply direct pressure to certain trigger points and though it was a bit painful, I did gain more movement and freedom from tight muscles and pain. (+ info
which is worse a broken bone or soft tissue tear?
This is regarding to the joint area, but it is not limited to that. Also, which will lead to more future issues/complications? I feel that a tissue tear is worse because its never really the same again after the injury.
I have a soft tissue injury, and was wondering how to maintain my strength and keep fit?
I hurt my elbow 7 weeks ago at gymnastics, and have recently started physical therapy for it and it should be healed in another 4-6 weeks. However, I'm losing strength in my arms for not being able to condition them. By the time I get back to gymnastics practice, I'm worried that I will really struggle to gain back my strength, so any tips? Also, my physical therapist said that I really have to "baby" my elbow so it can heal. There are now very few things that I can do to maintain fitness, because they told me I cannot even go running or do anything that causes my arm to bounce or puts pressure on it. I've worked very hard to achieve this level of fitness through gymnastics, and I need so advice on how to get exercise? and get back on track with gymnastics when I begin again?
ask your physical therapist...
try isometric exercise...just tense your muscles as hard as you can without moving the joint (don't do this if it hurts at all).
just be patient...a month isn't that long and you will set yourself back more if you try to train when you should be recovering and reinjure yourself. (+ info
Has anyone found anything that helps soft tissue injury?
I have tried almost everything: Chiropractic, physical therapy, stretching, yoga, massages. These things have helped dull the pain for a short time period (2-3 days) but then they come right back. Anything you have tried that has helped? Thanks.
Unless you treat the source of the pain, of course it's going to keep coming back. A massage might loosen the muscles and release the trigger points, but if you leave the massage table and adopt the poor posture and bad ergonomics that brought the problem on in the first place, then yes, it's going to come right back. If your engine is leaking oil, you can hardly expect that adding more is going to fix the problem permanently - you need to find out where the leak is happening and fix it.
Depending on what exactly is going on, it might be a case of needing ongoing maintenance. If it's a structural deformity like scoliosis, flat feet, or knocked knees that's the source of the problem, as an adult these things will probably not go totally away and need to be managed regularly. But if it's a case of using your body poorly - bending over to lift heavy objects, using poor posture, holding a phone with your shoulder, etc., then you can change your habits and help the problem dramatically. Even fixable problems are going to take time to undo. You can't expect lasting results from one or two sessions. You didn't do this to yourself in 2-3 days, it's not going to go away in that length of time, either. (+ info
