The last time you got behind the wheel of your car started just like any other day. Unfortunately, it ended with you being in a Daytona car crash and seriously injured. Your pelvis was fractured, and you received a battery of examinations and tests that left you in pain and disbelief. You wonder when you’re going to get back to your normal life, and what you’ll need to do to get there.
Depending on the type of fracture you experienced, you may only need to rest your pelvis in order for it to heal. The broken bones will eventually grow back together, as long as you stay off them and allow healing to proceed. This type of treatment is available for relatively minor fractures. Bones typically begin to heal about four weeks after the breaks, but you may feel relief soon before that.
More severe fractures often need surgery in order to heal. Typically, injuries that require surgery feature large fractures in several different places throughout the hip that won’t heal on their own. Some patients require multiple surgeries before they have reached their maximum possible recovery. Sadly, full recovery from a hip or pelvis fracture is impossible for a significant number of patients.
