How long does it take for a bruised hip or lower back to heal?

Question:
In April I was thrown from my horse. The doctor said I bruised my hips and lower back. I still have severe pain in my lower back when I move or sit. Would bruised hips and lower back still cause this much pain and discomfort several months later?

Answer:

A bruise/strain/sprain should be 90-95% healed by 6-8 weeks. Continued symptoms past this time suggest something more than that. I recommend an evaluation at least by your primary care physician or by a physical medicine doctor to see what is going on that’s not getting better.
