Why Do I Bruise so Easily & When to Worry about Bruises in Adults?

○ Muscular bruises

Muscle bruising has the same mechanism as bruises of the skin, but the force that causes the rupture of a blood vessel inside a muscle needs to be considerably stronger, and even though muscle contusion by itself is not hazardous and the risk of complications is very low, the trauma that caused the contusion could have caused muscle rupture or broken bones. The primary way to differentiate pain severity is the degree of functional limitation. A patient with a ruptured muscle can never move that body part, while in the case of contusions, the range of movement is only reduced and associated with pain.
