Accident and hip injury, terrible pain, hurts while coughing or exerting force. Is bruises the reason for causing hurt?

Hi, i fell riding my bike about a week ago and landed directly on my hip. The pain was terrible after the fall but I figured that it was just bruised. The pain is still persisting and it hurts me greatly to cough , sneeze , or exert any real force on it. Is it just bruised inside or could there be another reason as to why I m still hurting. Thanks

Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
I would recommend you to show it to orthopaedic surgeon. You can get x ray of the hip joint also. But my opinion is that it is a soft tissue injury. Treatment is following.
1. Take Brufen tablet one twice daily
2. rest and ice application
3. Voveron gel local application
