Re: mild heel fracture or just a bone bruise??

I think you should have this examined by a podiatrist or orthopedist. There is no way I can tell from your description. I think an x-ray is a good place to start. A MRI may be needed as well. Until you get this seen, I recommend ice, compression off weight bearing with crutches

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
