What can I do for a deep thigh bruise?

RICE: You should start with rice as a home treatment. After 48-72 hours you may switch to heat (instead of ice). As your pain starts to subside you may add stretching as tolerated, and massage. Once pain is gone, then gently return to activity as your strength and flexibility may need time to recovery after the injury, and you don't want to further injure yourself by attempting to go "all out" to fast. ...Read more

Bruise Or Contusion (Definition)

It feels like I have a deep bruise in my thigh. I am a runner, what can I do I am in so much pain. Should I stop running?

It feels like I have a deep bruise in my thigh. I am a runner, what can I do I am in so much pain. Should I stop running?

Yes, you should: If you are in that much pain, stop it and see your doc. It is not normal to have that much pain from running, unless you injured yourself some other way besides running. It could be bursitis, which is not dangerous and can be easily diagnosed, but you should definately check with your doc. Just remember, you can always run again once you know that nothing bad is happening in there. Best of luck. ...Read more

You on blood thinner: If you're on blood thinners such as coumadin (warfarin) or any of the newer generation anticoagulants then, you should see your doctor immediately if the pain doesn't either disappear quickly or gets worse..especially if bruising begins to be seen. Otherwise, you've unknowingly overstimulated what sounds to be either your sciatic nerve or stretched the L4 or L5 nerve roots in the back. ...Read more

Torn adductor/ham: With this type of injury and bruising, I often think first of a partial tear of the groin/adductor or hamstring tendons or muscles. It would be wise to try and get a definitive diagnosis and receive a plan for rehab, recovery time and return-to-play recommendations. It may take several months to heal.
