Why Does Exercise Cause Bruising?

Bruises appear on the body if one bumps against hindrances or obstacles while exercises and may also appear as side effects of certain physical activity.  The bruises should preferably heal by themselves in a few days, but if they do not show signs of healing in a week’s time, it may be a fine idea to get in touch with a healthcare provider.

The underlying cause of a bruise is bleeding below the skin, which may take place in the surrounding tissue as well. A few bruises occur within muscles and a few on the surface of bones.
Aerobic exercises come across as the top underlying cause of bruising. In a few cases, bruises may have been caused as resulting from a traumatic event, such as falling while riding a bicycle. In some rare scenarios, they may be reflective of a more serious injury as well. Athletes who run a lot, such as endurance runners are prone to stress fractures that may show up in the form of bruises. The bruises of this nature are known as Periosteal bruises, and they are likely to take longer than regular bruises to heal.

It is perfectly alright to seek medical help for healing bruises. It may be required for healing intermuscular or periosteal bruises. If the healing takes more than a couple of weeks, the time may be right to get in touch with a medical practitioner. Bruises caused as a result of stress fractures may even call for going for a surgery. In the same way, intermuscular bruises may call for a phase of rest and some medical supervision as well.
