Soft Tissue Injury Treatment in Pune

Soft tissue injuries (STI) occur when muscles, tendons, or ligaments are harmed or overused. The majority of soft tissue injuries are caused by an unexpected or uncontrolled movement, such as stepping awkwardly or rolling over your ankle. However, most tissue injuries happen during sports activities or while exercising.

Causes of Soft Tissue Injuries

Soft-tissue injuries are classified into two types: Acute injuries and Overuse injuries.

  • A sudden trauma causes acute injuries to the body, such as a fall, twist, or blow. Sprains, strains, and contusions are some examples.
  • Overuse injuries develop gradually over time when an athletic or other activity is repeated so frequently that the body’s tissues do not have enough time to heal between occurrences. Tendinitis and bursitis are two of the most common soft-tissue overuse injuries.

However, even with appropriate treatment, these injuries may take a long time to heal.

At Enliven Ortho and  Spinal Wellness Centre, our goal is to deliver the latest soft tissue injury treatment in Pune with advanced scientifically validated therapeutics so that patients are able to lead a happy day-to-day life despite the disease.

What kind of treatments do we deliver?

Our customized line of treatments is apt for any degeneration, cartilage damage or bone disease. We proudly declare that all of the methods are non-surgical and provide the maximum cure possible. We run multiple treatment methods under our ‘Spinal Wellness Program’ and ensure that each patient receives a personalized set of fast-responding therapy.

Spinal Wellness Program

With in-depth treatment like Spinal Correction and Spinal Mobilization, our treatment aim is to strengthen spine muscles, Intervertebral Discs, re-align the spine bones, or treat any other disc issues.

Spinal Decompression Therapy

It is a pain-relieving treatment for the spinal cord in which you would be asked to lie down straight on a computerized table by a specialized doctor. Depending on the area that requires treatment, your doctor may instruct you to lie face-up or face-down. Throughout the procedure, you will be clothed as the therapy machine scans the affected area for further action.

Indefinite pressure on the pelvic region, aging, athletic injuries, and poor nutrition all play a role in disrupting the quality of fluid inside the spinal disc plates, which serves as a cushion and shock absorber for the human body. Spinal Decompression Therapy is a 30 to 45-minute procedure.

Zero Gravity Spinal Treatment

Many of us experience a back problem at some point in our lives. To alleviate pain, most people turn to over-the-counter medications and painkillers. However, if the injury persists for an extended period of time, surgery should be considered as a last resort. Surgeries do not guarantee successful outcomes, and the recovery period is lengthy. The discs are likely to be compressed by gravity whenever the human body is standing or sitting upright. Furthermore, when the discs are compressed, the muscles contract, allowing the body to maintain its balance.

A fact to know

If you sustain a severe contusion to your muscles, tendons, or ligaments, your soft tissue injuries may be permanent. They may have long-term consequences that never fully heal.

Soft Tissue Injuries and their Treatments

Below is a detailed description of the most common soft tissue injuries and their treatments accordingly:

Acute Soft-Tissue Injury

Although Enliven Ortho and Spinal Wellness Centre thrives on advanced and modern medical diagnostics, we still strongly believe in conservative approaches for soft tissue injury treatment in Pune.

Most effective line of treatment

The severity and type of acute soft-tissue injuries vary. When an acute injury occurs, the RICE protocol is usually very effective in the initial treatment. RICE abbreviates for Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation.

  • Rest– Remove yourself from the activity that resulted in the injury. If you have a leg injury, your doctor may also advise you to use crutches to avoid bearing weight.
  • Ice– Several times a day, apply cold packs for 20 minutes at a time. Apply a gel ice pack rather than applying ice directly to the skin.
  • Compression– To prevent further swelling and blood loss, wear an elastic compression bandage.

Elevation – While resting, elevate the injury higher than your heart to reduce swelling.

Sprains

A sprain can be described as a stretch or tear of a ligament, which is a strong bunch of connective tissue that connects the ends of two bones. Ligaments help to stabilize and support the joints in the body. Ligaments in the knee, for example, connect your thighbone (femur) to your shinbone (tibia), allowing you to walk.

Ankles, knees, and wrists are body parts that are highly prone to sprains. A sprained ankle occurs when your foot turns inward, putting extreme strain on your outer ankle ligaments.

Treatment

At Enliven Ortho and Spinal Wellness Centre our highly experienced team of professionals use EMRT Treatment – an electromagnetic technology for treating such worn-out tissue injuries. This process is very helpful in healing arthritis, sports-type injuries, or repetitive stress injuries.

Sprain treatment begins with the RICE protocol and physical therapy. Moderate sprains frequently necessitate a period of bracing (for example, a CAM walking boot can be worn to help support and immobilise a sprained ankle).

Strain

A strain is a muscle or a tendon injury. Tendons are fibrous tissue cords that connect muscles to bone. Back and leg strains are common (typically, the hamstring).

A strain, like a sprain, can be as simple as a muscle or tendon stretch. It can also be as severe as a partial or complete tear of the muscle and tendon. Pain, muscle spasm, muscle weakness, swelling, inflammation, and cramping are all symptoms of a strain. Such injuries are mostly sports injuries and may occur while playing soccer, football, hockey, tennis, or while doing gymnastics. These activities involve extensive gripping and hence result in acutely strained muscles.

Treatment

Our team at Enliven Ortho and Spinal Wellness Centre specializes in sports injuries, and we recommend the most effective methods for soft tissue injury treatment in Pune.

Just like for Sprain, the protocol of RICE (Rest, ice, compression, and elevation) treatment is recommended for a Strained muscle as well. Following this, simple exercises recommended by our professionals to relieve pain and restore mobility should be diligently performed.

Contusions

Contusions occur when a blunt object strikes a part of the body, crushing underlying muscle fibers and connective tissue but not breaking the skin. A contusion can occur as a result of a fall or slamming the body against a hard surface. Many a time, blood pooling around the injury may cause skin discoloration in cases of contusions.

Treatment

The RICE protocol works well for the majority of contusions. As you recover, our doctors may advise you to take nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). These can alleviate pain. To reduce swelling or prevent further swelling, you may try applying an ice pack to the area for 15 to 20 minutes several times a day.

If you have a bone contusion, your doctor may recommend additional treatment, such as:

Using a temporary brace and increasing your intake of vitamin D and calcium, both of which are good supplements for your bone health.

If any of the above symptoms persist, consult Enliven Ortho and Spinal Wellness Centre to avoid permanent tissue damage. We provide you with apt injury diagnosis and guide you through proficient soft tissue injury treatment in Pune.

Additionally, our Spinal Wellness Program and modern technology treatments like EMRT and Spinal Decompression Therapy further make the healing process easier and painless.

A fact to know

Grade 1 soft tissue injuries heal in one to two weeks, while grade 2 soft tissue injuries heal in three to four weeks under expert guidance. Grade 3 soft tissue injuries necessitate immediate evaluation and treatment, as well as a much longer recovery time.

If any of the above symptoms persist, consult Enliven Ortho and Spinal Wellness Centre to avoid permanent tissue damage. We provide you with apt injury diagnosis and guide you through proficient soft tissue injury treatment in Pune.

Additionally, our Spinal Wellness Program and modern technology treatments like EMRT and Spinal Decompression Therapy further make the healing process easier and painless.

Soft Tissue Injuries due to overuse

Tendinitis

Tendinitis is the swelling or irritation of a tendon or the tendon’s covering (called a sheath). It happens when several small stresses occur subsequently and aggravate the tendon repeatedly. Swelling and pain that worsen with activity are common symptoms.

Tendinitis in the shoulders and elbows is common in professional baseball players, swimmers, tennis players, and golfers. Soccer and basketball players and runners and aerobic dancers are at risk of tendon inflammation in their knees and ankles.

Treatment

At Enliven Ortho and Spinal Wellness Centre, we are well-aware of the post-op risks and hence always focus on non-surgical methods of treatment. Our ortho experts in cases of Tendinitis recommend to rest more to relieve stress. Other ways may be:

  • Prescribing Anti-inflammatories: Medicines like Aspirin or naproxen sodium (Aleve), and others may help relieve the pain associated with tendinitis. Anti-inflammatory topical creams may also be effective in relieving pain without causing substantial side effects.

Physical Therapy: Apart from this, our doctors splinting, and exercises to correct the muscle imbalance and improve flexibility can all be used to treat tendinitis or soft tissue injury treatment in Pune. A program of specific exercise designed to stretch and strengthen the affected muscle-tendon unit may be beneficial. Eccentric strengthening, for example, which emphasizes muscle contraction while lengthening, proves to be a very effective treatment method for many chronic tendon conditions and is also considered first-line treatment.

Bursitis

Bursae are small, jelly-like sacs found all over the body, including the shoulder, elbow, hip, knee, and heel. They consist of a small amount of fluid and are placed between bones and soft tissues to act as cushions and reduce friction.

Bursitis may be defined as inflammation of a bursa. The bursa can swell because of repeated small stresses and overuse. It is commonly associated with tendinitis in many people.

Treatment

Along with validated diagnostics, we are also dedicated to offering tailor-made treatments. With advanced technologies like EMRT and our Spinal Wellness program, conditions of Bursitis and Tendinitis get healed with almost zero side effects. Also, this helps in improving physiological and biochemical in our patients.

Enliven Ortho and Spinal Wellness Centre has a successful track record of offering effectual yet low-risk soft tissue injury treatment in Pune. Our experts only advise what is necessary, cutting off all unwanted fragments of treatment.

Our team of experts highly recommend starting off with the RICE method followed by allowing a lot of rest to your affected part or pain area. Besides, Physical therapy can help you resume normal activity after the acute pain and swelling have subsided. The goal of physiotherapy is to help strengthen the muscles surrounding the rotator cuff while also restoring muscle flexibility and full range of motion.

Variation in activity and anti-inflammatory medications, such as ibuprofen, can usually relieve bursitis.

It is noteworthy to remember that injuries frequently occur when people increase the duration, intensity, or frequency of their activities abruptly. Nonetheless, many soft-tissue injuries are avoidable with proper conditioning and training.
