Causes of acute ligament and muscle injuries:

The soft tissue injuries can be divided into two categories:

  • Acute injuries: These are caused by accidental trauma like sudden fall, blow or twist to the body. Acute injuries include strains, sprains and contusions.
  • Overuse injuries: These injuries occur gradually over time. This type of injury can be seen in athletic or other activities which are repeated very often. The frequent occurrences of injuries do not give the body the proper time to heal. Examples of this kind of injury are bursitis and tendinitis.


  • Sprains: Sprain occurs when there is a stretch or tear of a ligament. Ligaments help to support and stabilize the joints of the body. Like the ligaments of the knee joints connect the thighbone with the shinbone, which enables people to run and walk.
  • Strains: Strain is an injury to a tendon or muscle. Tendons are the fibrous cords of tissue in the body which helps to attach muscles to the bones. In this type of injury, there might be a complete detachment of the muscle and tendon combination.
  • Tendinitis: It is the inflammation of a tendon which is caused due to a series of continuous small stresses. The typical symptoms include pain and swelling which sometimes worsens the daily activities.
  • Bursitis: Bursae are the small jelly-like sacs which are located all over the body, including around the elbow, shoulder, hip, heel and knee. They act as cushions between the bones and soft tissues. This injury is always followed by swelling of the bursa.

Most of the acute injuries of ligament and muscle can be treated with proper care, training and instrument. Other treatments include warming up, resting, and drinking plenty of water. But when the symptoms get serious, sometimes surgery is required. Acute injuries have become a common problem today. Surgical treatments have shown good results with a fairly good rate of recovery, but due to the complications of the surgery many people try to prevent it as much as possible. To prevent surgeries, PRP injections are injected into the affected area which shows faster results than those treated with surgeries. PRP treatment allows the athletes to improve their gentle running and training in lesser time just after the injury. PRP Treatment has constantly been productive for those affected by acute ligament and muscle injuries. The speedy recovery is the best thing about PRP treatment which surgery fails to provide. Dr Vineeth MB, Sports Injury Doctor in Ernakulam provides Acute Ligament Injury PRP Treatment in Kochi, Kerala.
