The early stage of a soft tissue injury is known as the acute phase of injury and is the first 48 – 72 hours post injury.

Common characteristics of this stage are pain, swelling, redness and loss of function. Rehabilitation of soft-tissue injuries can be complex. Over the years, acronyms guiding their management have evolved from ICE to RICE, then on to PRICE and POLICE.1 Although widely known, these previous acronyms focus on acute management, unfortunately ignoring subacute and chronic stages of tissue healing.

M.E.A.T. increases the flow of blood to injured areas in order to enhance the healing process. Soft tissue structures such as ligaments, tendons, and cartilage don’t get a lot of blood supply to begin with, so reducing blood flow with R.I.C.E.

- A soft tissue injury is termed as sub-acute when the initial acute phase makes a transition to repairing the injured tissues. Late Stage (Remodelling Phase) - At six weeks post-soft tissue injury your healing tissue is reasonably mature but as you stretch, strength and stress your new scar tissue it often finds that it is not strong enough to.

Scar tissue also starts to form at this stage of healing, and RICE is highly recommended. RICE is Rest, Ice, Compress, and Elevation. Depending on the severity of the injury, gentle movements and/or physical therapy may be beneficial which can aid in pain management and healing.

An acute injury may include some or all of the following. A complication of a soft tissue injury can occur in the early, intermediate or much later stages. Some people will recover from a soft tissue injury much sooner than another person with the same type of injury.

Others will go on to suffer complications. While it is rare for a soft tissue injury to be fatal, a severe complication can occur.

Acute soft tissue knee injuries are commonly associated with sports and young active people. It should not be forgotten that there are also significant injuries that affect the older and less. Exercises will help to restore mobility, strength and proprioception early after injury.[4, 5, 10] Pain should be avoided to ensure optimal repair during the subacute phase of recovery, and should be used as a guide for progressing exercises to greater levels of difficulty.

Managing soft tissue injuries is more than short-term damage control. The recovery time from grade 1 soft tissue injuries in one to two weeks and three to four weeks for a grade 2.

Grade three soft tissue injuries require immediate assessment and treatment, with much longer recovery times.

Recovery times can also depend on your age, general health and occupation. If you are not sure of the nature or extent of. The quality of acute stage management of a soft tissue injury is thought to be an important determinant for short and long term recovery.

In the survey, acute soft-tissue injuries of the knee were defined as injuries that do not result in fractures (with some exceptions, as explained below), extensor mechanism disruption or knee dislocation.

Examples of such injuries include ligament injury, meniscus injury and patellar by: 1. Non-steriodal anti-inflammatory drugs are often used for analgesia in soft tissue injury.

The evidence to support this is weak, plus NSAIDs may even delay healing. This article explores the evidence on the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medications in the management of acute soft tissue injuries such as sprains. Soft-tissue injuries fall into two basic categories: acute injuries and overuse injuries.

Acute injuries are caused by a sudden trauma, such as a fall, twist, or blow to the body. Examples of an acute injury include sprains, strains, and contusions. Soft tissue injuries are the most common injury in sport.
