Possible Bruised Heel?

(2 discussions)

Last Friday I was playing indoor soccer and in trying to avoid an individual who had fallen, I jumped over them, but came down hard on the playing surface, and directly on my left heel.
After I started running back up the field, I felt this dull “bruiselike” pain on the bottom of my left heel. It has been 3 days and the pain is still present.
I can not put direct pressure on my heel and manage to walk by using the front portion of my foot, barely touching the heel to the ground. How long does it take to recover from a bruised heel (average time)? What can be done to speed up recovery time if it is a bruised heel? Streches? Massage?

    I can’t tell if you have a bruise to the heel or plantar fascia. Your best choice is to see a podiatrist ASAP. I never recommend doing stretching or massaging unless I know it will be helpful. As a rule, generally if the part is injured, it needs to be rested until it is well.
