Bruise on spine. How could that happen? Posture related?


I am a healthy, active, non-smoking young adult and about a month ago I noticed a quarter sized bruise with very faint scraping on the surface near the base of my spine, just above the waist band. It is only now beginning to fade away and I was wondering if there is some sort of explanation for this? I never got hit/bumped there, I have good posture and I don't drink very often so I know it wasn't from a drunken mishap.

Thanks for writing to us.
The bruise near your spine might have happened due to a mild trauma that you might not have noticed. Since the bruise has gradually faded now, there is nothing to worry.
A mils muscle sprain can also cause such a mild internal bleeding.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
