A broken pelvis is a serious and painful injury that is most often the result of a car accident, although it can happen due to a slip and fall accident as well. Children and senior citizens are more prone to breaking their pelvic bones due to immature and aging bones that are more fragile.
The first signs of a broken pelvis are usually pain, bruising and swelling near the area and feeling like your hips or knees are out of place and need to be adjusted. The symptoms don’t always appear immediately after an accident, so people who are eventually diagnosed with a broken pelvis may assume at first that the accident didn’t affect them.
