Contusions can also be caused by indirect injuries, such as extreme stretching of the skin and underlying soft tissues.

To prevent further damage from occurring, contusions should be treated promptly and assessed thoroughly.

What is a contusion?
A contusion, commonly known as a bruise, is caused when small blood vessels and capillaries are damaged due to an impact or trauma. Bruises occur when a force or pressure impacts against the skin that damages but does not break the skin. A result of this damage is leaking of red blood cells that accumulate in the tissue beneath the surface of our skin causing discoloration and swelling. Depending on how hard you were hit or how much your tissue was damaged, a contusion can range from light-colored blue, green to black and purple bruises.
What are the treatments for a contusion?
Treatments for a contusion include chiropractic adjustments, physiotherapy and massage therapy. Chiropractors can assess the area and help reduce swelling with chiropractic mobilization techniques. Physiotherapists can provide therapeutic exercises to begin strengthening the muscles around the injured area. Massage therapy may be used to relax tight muscles and reduce muscle soreness. All these treatments combined can help promote healing in the injured tissue. It’s important to seek medical attention as soon as possible after sustaining an injury with significant swelling and pain, so appropriate treatments can be started quickly for optimal relief and recovery.
