#123702 - 02/07/05 07:13 PM Heel injury
Anonymous

Hi, I am a 27 year old TKD student who has injured his heel.. The injury is to the sole of my heel. I am fairly sure it is a bruise because I have complete range of motion with no pain.. The only pain I have is putting presure on it when walking or pushing on it with my finger.. I injured it landing on my opponent foot causing me to lose my balance and pound my heel into the ground with all my body weight on it.. My question is has anyone had a bruised heel sole and if so how long should it take to heal before I should worry? It has been 1 and 1/2 weeks now and I am still very tender and I have been sitting out and feeling very lazy... Your help would be appreciated... Thank you

Hi there,

I had this problem b4, I jog too much in one day that cause so much stress on it. Anyway, mine took quite a long time about 2 weeks; I still had the pain, I thought it will never heal but don't give up. After the 2 weeks, I kept on massaging and after 2-3 days of lots of massaging, it healed fast, real fast. The problem is same too, when I walk and put presure on it, it hurts. Try using any muscle pain medication when massaging.

cjburns, My wife had a similar heel injury, not related to MA, which was diagnosed as "plantar fasciitis" (pardon the spelling). She went through message therapy, accupuncture, and finally cortizone injections. This went on for about 3 months.

Give it a few more days then go see the doctor for a proper diagnosis.

Thank you for you advice.. I have done some research on this and I was concerned about plantar faciitis also. I have not ruled that out but to my understanding it would cause discomfort when you either contract or stretch the plantar.. But i do have full range of motion.. but I do realize that i still could be that and I am hoping not. I have heard that it takes a long time to heal.. I have started massaging it like roger04 has suggested.. I appreciate the help, and thanks again...
