Have soft tissue damage in pelvis. How long will it take to heal?
User rating for this question
I have soft tissue damage in my pelvis. I think it occurred before and didn't heal properly. Anyway it has been two weeks and just when I think it will subside it flairs up if I do anything. What can I do to help it along and how long will it take to get better. I can only see a physio on Wednesday this coming week.

Brief Answer: MRI to see the extent of injury. Detailed Answer: Muscle strengthening exercises are performed to help you improve the function of your muscles. The goal is to improve strength, increase endurance and maintain or improve range of motion. These can be better taught by your physiotherapist. If the pain is persist even after 3 weeks , I suggest you to go for MRI to see the extent of injury after consulting your doctor.
