Our expert says:
It depends if it is the heel bone, or the ankle joint that you hurt - for starters you can try an anti-inflammatory like Voltaren or Neurofen if you don't have stomach ulcer, allergy or other contra-indications for using it. If the ankle is painful but not swollen or blue or unstable, you can strap it with crepe bandage. If it is the heel you may have bruised the bone and just have to give it some time to heal. Try doing exercises like bicycling or swimming where you don't put weight on the heel but can still get cardio exercise.
