Ligaments are the tissues that connect two bones.</li><li><a href="/article?contentid=945&language=English">Strains</a> are injuries to muscles and/or the tendons that attach or connect the muscles.</li></ul><p>These types of soft tissue injury are common. They are usually mild, but they can sometimes be quite serious. They can also occur together in the same injured area.</p> ​<h2>Key points</h2><ul><li>Soft tissue injuries include strains and sprains. Strains affect muscles and tendons; sprains affect ligaments.</li><li>Most soft tissue injuries are mild and can be treated with rest, cool packs, compression and raising the injured body part. Over-the-counter pain medicine can also help with pain.</li> <li>Your health-care provider will talk to you about how soon your child can return to their regular activity.</li></ul><h2>Symptoms of a soft tissue injury</h2> <p>A person with a soft tissue injury will have pain and swelling. Depending on how severe it is and where it is, the injury may affect activities that use the injured body part. Severe soft tissue injuries will cause the child or teen to stop their activity.</p><h2>Causes of a soft tissue injury</h2> <p>Sprains and strains are caused by severe or sudden twisting, stretching or (for muscles) contraction. These forces stretch or even tear the fibres of the muscle, tendon or ligament. They may even cause the muscle, tendon or ligament to detach from its anchor point (for example, a bone).</p><h2>When to see a doctor</h2> <p>Call your child's regular doctor if:</p> <ul> <li>your child is not getting better by four or five days after the injury</li> <li>your child needs a medical checkup before going back to sports or activities</li> <li>there is increasing redness or swelling around the site of injury</li> <li>your child has a fever</li> </ul> <p>Call your child's doctor immediately if your child has a significant break in the skin or has decreased feeling (sensation) around the site of injury. These are signs that the injury may be more than a soft tissue injury.</p> <h3>When to get help from emergency services</h3> <p>Go to your nearest Emergency Department or call 911 if:</p> <ul> <li>your child cannot use the affected area at all within a short time after the injury</li> <li>your child has a constant numbness, coldness or loss of feeling in the injured area</li> <li>the affected body part no longer has its normal shape</li> <li>your child has constant or severe pain that does not get better with medicine such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen.</li> </ul>

Elles sont habituellement mineures bien qu’elles puissent être très graves. De plus, elles peuvent se produire simultanément au même endroit.</p><br><h2>À retenir</h2> <ul> <li>Les lésions aux tissus mous comprennent les élongations et les entorses. Les élongations sont des lésions aux muscles et aux tendons tandis que les entorses sont des lésions aux ligaments.</li> <li>La plupart des lésions aux tissus mous sont mineures. Elles exigent du repos, l’application de blocs réfrigérants, une compression et l’élévation de la partie du corps atteinte. La prise d’analgésiques en vente libre peut aussi réduire la douleur.</li> <li>Votre fournisseur de soins de santé vous précisera dans combien de temps votre enfant pourra reprendre ses activités habituelles.</li> </ul><h2>Symptômes des lésions aux tissus mous</h2> <p>Les lésions aux tissus mous sont douloureuses et provoquent une enflure. Selon leur gravité et leur emplacement, elles peuvent nuire aux activités qui requièrent l’usage de la partie du corps touchée. Les enfants ou les adolescents cessent l’activité qu’ils pratiquent lorsqu’ils se font une lésion grave aux tissus mous.</p><h2>Causes des lésions aux tissus mous</h2> <p>Les entorses et les élongations sont causées par une torsion, une contraction (s’il s’agit des muscles) ou un étirement excessif ou soudain des ligaments, des muscles ou des tendons. Ces mouvements étirent les fibres du muscle, du tendon ou du ligament en cause ou peuvent même les arracher de leur point d'attache (par exemple, un os).</p><h2>Quand consulter un médecin</h2> <p>Communiquez avec votre médecin :</p> <ul> <li>si l’état de votre enfant ne s’améliore pas au bout de quatre ou cinq jours suivant la blessure responsable de la lésion,</li> <li>si votre enfant a besoin d’un examen médical avant de reprendre ses activités sportives ou autres,</li> <li>si la rougeur ou l’enflure dans la zone de la lésion empire,</li> <li>si votre enfant présente une fièvre.</li> </ul> <p>Communiquez immédiatement avec votre médecin si votre enfant présente une plaie cutanée importante ou si la sensation autour de la lésion diminue, car ce sont des signes permettant de croire que la blessure a atteint une autre partie du corps que les tissus mous.</p> <h3>Quand avoir recours aux services d’urgence</h3> <p>Rendez-vous aux services des urgences les plus près ou composez le 911 si :</p> <ul> <li>votre enfant ne peut pas se servir de la partie du corps touchée peu après s’être blessé,</li> <li>votre enfant présente un engourdissement, une sensation de froid ou une perte de sensation qui persiste à l'endroit touché;</li> <li>la partie du corps touchée n’a plus sa forme habituelle,</li> <li>votre enfant éprouve une douleur persistante ou intense qui ne diminue pas avec la prise de médicaments comme l'acétaminophène ou l'ibuprofène.</li> </ul>

Depending on how severe it is and where it is, the injury may affect activities that use the injured body part. Severe soft tissue injuries will cause the child or teen to stop their activity.</p><h2>Causes of a soft tissue injury</h2> <p>Sprains and strains are caused by severe or sudden twisting, stretching or (for muscles) contraction. These forces stretch or even tear the fibres of the muscle, tendon or ligament. They may even cause the muscle, tendon or ligament to detach from its anchor point (for example, a bone).</p><h2>Taking care of your child at home</h2> <p>Most soft tissue injuries are mild and can be cared for by parents, coaches, teachers or other caregivers. In very mild cases, it may be okay to continue the activity that caused the injury.</p> <p>To decide if it is safe to return to activity, a parent or responsible caregiver should check your child's injury. They should also tend to the injury later.</p> <p>Ideally, tending to the injury will:</p> <ul> <li>relieve discomfort</li> <li>keep the joint stable</li> <li>minimize swelling</li> </ul> <p>After an injury, the swelling of the injured body part may interfere with healing.</p> <h3>How to tend to an injury</h3> <ul> <li>Rest and keep the injured area still. If the area is very painful, use splints, slings, dressings or crutches as directed by your health-care provider.</li> <li>Use ice, or cold packs, in the first 48 hours after an injury. Do not apply ice directly to the skin; wrap it in a thin cloth first. You can also use a bag of frozen vegetables or crushed ice; it will shape itself to the injured area. Apply the cold pack for up to 20 minutes every two or three hours or as directed.</li> <li>Use compression or elastic dressings to help reduce swelling when your child is up and moving around, but do not rely on them to provide support. Your child should remove them when resting and before going to sleep. If the area near the dressing becomes numb, loosen the dressing, as it may be too tight.</li> <li>Elevate (raise) the injured area as much as possible above the level of the heart in the first day or two after the injury. This will help reduce swelling. For example, if your child injures their leg, they can use cushions or pillows as props to keep it raised when they are sitting or lying down.</li> <li>If needed, your child may take medicine such as ibuprofen to decrease any pain and inflammation. Use according to the package directions or as instructed by your health-care provider.</li> </ul> <h2>When can my child return to regular activity?</h2> <p>Your health-care provider will talk to you about your child's gradual return to activity based on the type of injury. For mild to moderate injury, early movement and light activity will help your child get better faster. More severe injuries may take as long as four to six weeks to heal and activity may make the injury worse.</p><h2>How to prevent soft tissue injuries</h2> <p>Many tissue injuries can be prevented by wearing protective gear such as helmets or wrist protectors. Stretching and warming up before activity is also very important for joint and ligament health.</p><h2>When to see a doctor</h2> <p>Call your child's regular doctor if:</p> <ul> <li>your child is not getting better by four or five days after the injury</li> <li>your child needs a medical checkup before going back to sports or activities</li> <li>there is increasing redness or swelling around the site of injury</li> <li>your child has a fever</li> </ul> <p>Call your child's doctor immediately if your child has a significant break in the skin or has decreased feeling (sensation) around the site of injury.
