Thanks for writing to us.
The presence of large contusions on the body is suggestive of soft tissue injuries. Most of the times such injuries do heal by themselves in 4-6 weeks without any active treatment. In case the pain persists, then examination is needed to rule out any fractures.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
