Should I take my son to the hospital for pain in legs and hips after a fall from his cycle ?

My 11 year old son was riding home from school today and hit a log, went over the handle bars and fell on his left hip. The top area of his left Illiumis is very bruised and extremely sore . Came home from school and played out side for a little. Came in and said he is in pain when he walks,lift his legs,rotate his hips and when he gets up from a sitting position. Should i take him to the hospital?

You need to take him to a hospital as the bruise could be a tell tale sign of some underlying fracture. And if so, will require bed rest. Please prevent him from walking till you consult an orthopaedician. He will require an Xray for the same. meanwhile let him rest and apply some ice over the bruise.
Get back to me if in doubt.
