Possible Bruised Heel?

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?

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.
