What is ‘pelvic contusion’?

As per Temple Health, the pelvis is an area that protects many important organs like the bladder, bowels, blood vessels and nerves that stretch to the legs. The pelvis is located below the abdomen and above the hips.

The bones that make the pelvic are the sacrum, the coccyx and the hip bones, which the incude ilium, ischium and pubis.

Pelvic contusions, which are also called pelvic trauma or pelvic injury, depend on the type and severity of the injury.

Pelvic contusions occur during a strong impact to the pelvis area like a fall, accident or collision with someone else. Minor pelvic contusions often include bruised muscles and pain in the pelvis area but do not require surgery.

Computed tomography, X-rays or physical examination which checks for other injuries all help to determine the type of pelvic contusion.

Pelvic contusion recovery

As per Merck Manual, minor pelvic contusions typically heal without causing permanent injury and surgery is rarely needed in those circumstances.

These contusions can be treated with pain relievers (analgesics) which help relieve the pain so that people can walk. Walking also helps when minor pelvic injuries occur.

The outlet further explains: “To avoid the weakness, stiffness, and other complications that occur with bed rest, people should walk, stand, and put their full weight on the joint as soon as possible, even if they can do so only for a short time.”
