Hey I'm new here and I'm wondering what your opinions are on this.
i was biking and fell from like 4 feet onto my left heel.. hurts like a ****h, cant walk on it or i have excruciating pain, its not really swollen or discoloured, but it hurrrrrts when i try to curl my fingers in... what do you guys make of this.. should i see a doctor? similar thing happened 2 weeks ago with my other heel, except it didn't hurt this much and its pretty much healed now

  • If you can't place any weight on it at all, then yes, you should get an xray and make sure there is no fracture or stress fracture...don't put this off as it may likely get much worse. Could be a severe sprain, but get checked by a doc to make sure.Once you have been checked by a doc, I recommend trying acupunture to help speed your healing. I have worked with bikers with similar injuries and they usually see faster results with acupuncture. Best wishesDOM
