Anlke Swelling After Hit In Shin
Swelling from hit to shin from softball-should i continue to ice or switch to heat? If switch to heat, should I use heating pad or will icy hot work?
Treatment options: If your injury occured 72+ hours ago then it is acceptable to switch to heat in an effort to deal with any swelling in the area. Icyhot doesn't cause the same healing effect of ice or heat. Topicals such as this are known as counterirritants that trick pain receptors, but really do nothing more than numb the area. If you are having severe pain, or are unable to walk on your leg please have a xray. ...Read more

The blood might show up not where it was stuck but lower due to gravity effects and it might not bruise at all, swelling alone can occur after blunt trauma. ...Read more

I hit my shin really hard today on a bench, now it is swollen and bruised and when you run your finger over it you can feel an indention, what should i do? I've been icing it to take down the swelling so far
Keep doing: what you are doing. It is not uncommon for a forceful contusion to make such a "dent" as you describe. Icing and elevation are the best things to do, for up to 48 or 72 hours. Then resume normal activities avoiding anything that seems to increase the swelling or pain (i.e. running, over-exertion). The dent may remain a surprisingly long time...even months to years:( Sorry.
