Soft Tissue Injuries
Soft tissue injuries can occur in a variety of ways such as a car accident, slip and fall accident, boating accident, recreational vehicle accident, dog bite or any other impact. The problem with soft tissue injuries is that they are difficult to prove as the injury will not show up on an x-ray, and will be difficult to see on a scan or MRI. Getting an MRI may show the injury, but getting an MRI in Toronto or anywhere in Ontario is very difficult. The OHIP system is strapped for resources, and there is a long waiting list for MRI services. You will likely be able to get an MRI more quickly driving to the United States than waiting for one in Ontario.
Soft tissue injuries can make it very difficult for the accident victim to lead a normal life. Dealing with constant, throbbing pain which did not exist before is not easy. The pain can radiate from one part of the body to the other. The pain can render an accident victim or disability claimant totally disabled from getting back to work or running a normal life. Activities of daily living such as housekeeping and home maintenance might be compromised as as result of the soft tissue injury and the associated pain.
The pain from a soft tissue injury might be managed by medication, but there are times when medication doesn't work, or your body has grown used to the pain medication. You may not want to grow reliant on taking stronger pain medication such as Morphine, Oxycodone, Percocet or Tylenol #3. Who wants to be taking that sort of stuff anyways? Coping with the pain is never easy. It can result in depression, moodiness, loss of energy, fatigue, anxiety, stress, loss of concentration and overall despair.
