Hip Pointer

A Hip Pointer is an injury which is a deep bruise of the hip bone, surrounding soft tissue structures and the 'ball' part of the femur.

What is Hip Pointer?

Hip pointer is characterized by bruising or contusion of pelvis brim (also referred to as the iliac crest) and the surrounding tissues as a result of injury or assault. In severe conditions formation of hematoma (appearance of a blood clot under skin) may also occur.

Signs and Symptoms of Hip Pointer

Most patients present with:

  • Visible bruising of abdominal musculature and pelvic tissue
  • Moderate to severe pain
  • Generalized or localized discomfort
  • Stiffness of hip joint
  • Alterations in the normal range of motion
  • Painful muscle spasms and compromised mobility

Causes of Hip Pointer

Most frequently reported causes of hip pointer are a fall from a significant height, a direct blow or assault over the pelvic region. Individuals who maintain a highly dynamic lifestyle (such as active involvement in competitive sports related activities) or those who have congenital or acquired bone deformities are more likely to experience Hip Pointer.
