The time it takes for a bruised kidney caused by a fall to heal depends upon the severity of the bruising of the kidney. Typically if the bruising is not too serious it is recommended that any physical exercise be avoided for at least 2 weeks.

  • Treatment of bruised kidneys
If the bruising is not too serious, then it is unlikely that any treatment will be required, although more serious bruising will require some treatment. The typical treatment that is provided for bruised kidneys includes the control of fluids consumed.

Doctors consider a bruised kidney as a mild injury, and it is only considered serious if the kidney injury causes a large amount of blood to be passed through the urine, following the fall. Surgery is only required to treat very serious kidney injuries, and the surgery carries risks of its own. Typically the kidney has the ability to heal itself.

  • Functions of the kidney
The kidney has many useful, and essential functions. These include the filtering, absorption and secretion of blood and other liquids within the body. The kidney is also responsible for the excretion of waste products from the body. The kidney regulates the blood pressure within the body.

As with any other injury, if you feel that you have bruised or injured a kidney, it is best to consult a doctor for advice, as they will be able to establish the seriousness of the injury and recommend treatment if it is needed. When sustaining any sort of fall it is best to consult a doctor.
