Connective tissue is a material that is composed of fibers that form a framework and the surrounding support structure for all of your organs and body tissues. There is connective tissue surrounding any number of different organs in your body. Bone and cartilage are a specialized type of connective tissue. All of your connective tissue comes from the mesoderm, which is the middle germ cell layers within the embryo.
Connective tissue injuries stem from a sprain or strain to the tissues that connect your muscles and your bones. These injuries can occur from overusing the muscles and tendons at work to being injured in a car accident. When those muscle and connective tissues are injured, it can cause you to be unable to lift items, walk and even stand for periods of time. It takes time for these strains and sprains to heal properly.
If you are going to be off work or limited in your activities due to a connective tissue injury, you need to make sure you are being properly compensated for your injuries. While these injuries often heal over the course of time, that doesn’t help while you are in the recovery process and unable to move about like normal.
