Swelling and bruise on shin after injury. Hurts to walk. Will it heal on its own?
my shin got hit a week ago playing soccer. it started bruising and swelling right away. Now it s still swollen and bruised. I ve been able to walk but it does hurt slightly when I walk. I also haven t been able to run at all because it hurts so bad. I honestly didn t think much of it at first but is it something I should get looked at or will it heal on it s own?
Hi, It seems that due to injury there might be having some soft tissue injury and hematoma on the part giving rise this problem. Take one course of antibiotic and anti-inflammatory medicine course. Do ice pack for 2-3 days. Ok and take care.
