What is the medical evidence supporting suspicion that soft tissue injuries do not resolve completely?

British Columbia, Canada

The following excerpt is from Aulakh v. Poirier, 2006 BCSC 2027 (CanLII):

While suspicion may be appropriate when soft-tissue injuries do not resolve completely, the only medical evidence before me, consistent with common sense, is that this is one of those unusual cases where that simply did not occur. I am not troubled by the lack of continual confirmation of these symptoms by her doctor in his clinical notes, for the reasons expressed by my colleague Gerow J. in Meyers v. Lang, a case of May 23, 2006, at paragraph 50. As well, I found that case to be of much assistance in assessing damages in this case.
