Hip Pointer


A Hip Pointer is a bone bruise from a direct blow to the iliac crest, a portion of the pelvis on the side of the body.

Symptoms

Hip pointer symptoms include pain, swelling, bruising, muscle spasms, and tenderness at the iliac crest. This is often worse with walking and core movement.

Evaluation & Treatment

Initial evaluation of a hip pointer includes a medical history, physical examination, and X-rays to rule out fractures or bony avulsions.

Treatment consists mainly of ice and compression, rest, and anti-inflammatory medications.
