What is multiple contusions?
Similarly, it is asked, what is a contusion wound?
A bruise, or contusion, is caused when blood vessels are damaged or broken as the result of a blow to the skin (be it bumping against something or hitting yourself with a hammer). A purplish, flat bruise that occurs when blood leaks out into the top layers of skin is referred to as an ecchymosis.
One may also ask, how are contusions caused? Contusions occur when a direct blow or repeated blows by a blunt object strike part of the body, crushing underlying muscle fibers and connective tissue without breaking the skin.
Keeping this in view, how long do brain contusions take to heal?
With a mild TBI the most rapid recovery occurs in the first 3 months post-injury and most people are back to normal by 6 months. If you still have some symptoms after 6 months, these will most likely disappear altogether or be greatly improved within a year after the injury.
