Pelvic injuries are very critical as they restrict body movement. You might not be able to complete even your daily chores such as bathing and meal preparation because of a pelvic bone. The fracture which is caused because of a severe trauma to the pelvic region mostly occurs due to a fall, physical activity or an accident, leaving patients with restricted motion for a long time. Getting back to normal is a difficult process which demands patience.
The severity of the injury and many other factors like age of the patient, location of the fracture, etc are considered to determine the mode of treatment. The course of recovery from a pelvic fracture goes through three main phases – surgery(if needed), physical therapy, rehabilitation and occupational therapy.
Healing of the fracture takes anywhere between six to twelve weeks but returning to the pre-injury state might take a year or more.
