Heel injury due to mountain biking, sore on applying pressure. Bruised heel?

I was mountain biking last night and i completed a large jump but my right foot slipped off the pedal and i landed fall force on my heel. It is now rather sore when pressure is applied but i can move my foot arround easily without pain when i am not standing on it. Is this merely a bruised heel. What is the best treatment

Hello there
you should do Xray foot to rule out any injury. However it looks to be a sprain. you can wear a pressure bandage(crepe bandage) and use some pain killer like ibuprofen 400mg. you can also apply topical analgesic cream like diclofenic sodium. Give foot rest.
