Updated June 13, 2018 03:27:13A new study out of Harvard and the University of Pennsylvania finds that if a person’s pelvis were to break, the body could recover more quickly than the average person.
The study, published in the journal The American Journal of Physical Anthropology, looked at how many patients in the study’s sample managed to heal after surgery, and the median recovery time was six weeks.
That compares with a national average of six weeks recovery for a broken pelvicle.
The researchers found that women who were at least 60 percent of the population had a median recovery rate of 12 weeks, while men had a recovery rate that was 16 percent higher than average.
The average recovery time for a man’s broken pelva was about six weeks, and for a woman’s was nine weeks.
This is a significant improvement in terms of the number of patients that have recovered within six weeks of surgery, the researchers wrote.
But, the results aren’t exactly what they seem.
The recovery time after a break was much longer for men, while women’s recovery time tended to be more like four weeks.
This could be because the pelvis was broken and people had been working out, the study found.
