Brief Answer:

Can cause a soft tissue injury.

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Showering with a high water pressure can cause a blunt injury in the area causing a bruise to appear.

It cannot cause a permanent change in the shape of bones or skull or flatten of bones. It can only cause a soft tissue injury.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
