This month, I have seen a remarkably high number of thigh contusions/injuries from people coming into contact with boating docks during water sports.
If you find yourself with a serious thigh bruise after this incident, or after a sports injury, here are a few recommendations:
1. Get the injury evaluated by a medical professional to ensure that you have not injured your underlying bone.
2. Ice –15 min on. 15 min off
3. Compress–Using an elastic bandage can help control swelling
4. For the first 24 hours, try to keep your knee in a bent position
