Deep Tissues Injuries


Pressure injuries can occur as the result of a traumatic accident wherein force is applied to the surface of an accident victim’s skin. People who become trapped underneath heavy objects for a prolonged period of time, or whose bodies are dragged forcefully between another surface could develop severe pressure injuries. Additionally, people who have sustained muscle injuries resulting in nutrient deficiencies as well as injuries that have damaged their fascia may be at risk of developing severe pressure injuries.

The severity of pressure injuries are measured in stages; Stage IV pressure injuries can cause extensive damage to muscles, bones, joints, tendons, and deep tissues. If there is no open wound but tissues beneath the surface of the skin have been damaged, the resulting sore is called a deep tissue injury (DTI).

DTIs can be difficult to detect in people with dark skin tones. One of the primary observable symptoms is a purple or maroon skin discolouration. There may also be a blood-filled blister caused by damage to underlying soft tissues. The injured area might also have tissue that feels different to the touch than adjacent areas. It might feel more painful, firmer, or spongier than non-injured areas, or have a difference in temperature.

The Long-Term Impacts of DTIs

In addition to the physical pain and limited mobility often experienced by accident survivors who are suffering from DTIs, these severe pressure injuries can have long-lasting, profoundly impactful consequences. There are major risk factors involved with DTIs that could have severe repercussions for injured accident victims in the future. These include:

  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Immobility
  • Incontinence
  • Diseases that affect blood flow (including diabetes and atherosclerosis)
  • Obesity 
  • Ischemia
  • Hypoxemia
  • Anemia
  • Neurological disease
  • And more

Many people suffering from DTIs require extensive and expensive personal assistance in the form of personal support workers and attendant care. Since DTIs often make it impossible for injured accident victims to continue working in their current positions of employment, affording the necessary costs of personal care in addition to other medical expenses, lifestyle adjustment costs, and regular costs of living often feel like an impossibility.
