Ice and stretching: Decrease any running and jumping activities. Use a small heel lift, ice regularly, and start a gentle heel cord stretching program combined with eccentric calf exercises. Often helpful to sleep with splint that keeps ankle in neutral so heel cord does not contract.

Perhaps: If bruising develops without any recognized injury, there is cause for concern. Use of Aspirin or non steroidal anti-inflammatory medication like Ibuprofen can cause increased bleeding. There are other diseases that affect the bodies clotting ability and can lead to unexplained bleeding. If the condition does not resolve quickly, consult your family doctor.

Ice is better: When you bruise yourself, thetissues swell, partially from bleeding (black and blue) and also from fluid leaking into the tissues. Ice cools the tissues and will decrease the swelling.. Heat causes local, blood vessels to dilate and can lead to increased swelling, increasing healing time.
