hurt heel and ankle

A week and a half ago I tripped over a sidewalk and landed hard on my left foot and my other shoe flew off my foot. I came very close to falling on my face. I went to the walk in clinic on monday after almost a week of walking it on my toes. They said that I just bruised my heel. They gave me crutches and said to stay off my foot for a week. I have and my foot still hurts. The xrays say that nothing is broken. I still can't walk on it. It sends a sharp pain up my leg. When I bend my toes it it really hurts my ankle. Should I see another doctor?

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
