Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

First of all, an X-ray is a must. As the impact was on the cement floor, there might be a possibility of bone injury. Post-X-ray, we can say the possible next treatment plan. Usually with rest for the initial time and using piles pillow will allow the less compression over the injured area. Post which the exercise to strengthen the hip muscles are advised to regain the muscle strength. Please take an X-ray and share the report. X-ray to be taken is PA pelvic bones or PA coccyx.
