Pain in left foot especially the heel after a jump, swelling below ankle. Relief measure?

Hello, sorry to bother you at this time but I am in a lot of pain. Last Thursday I jumped into a fountain during a practice we had with my sorority and the moment I landed I felt pain in my right foot . Specifically in my heel..there is some swelling below the outside of my right foot below the ankle. It hurts really bad. How can I reduce the pain and heal it quick because we have upcoming practice..

You had a jump followed by pain in your heel with swelling below ankle.This could be due tw reasons 1) injury to the ligaments of ankle joint which called as joint sprain or 2) Due to crack fracture of the heel bone (Calcaneum)Pl consult orthopedic surgeon and have x-ray of the foot done to rule out any fracture.If it is a simple sprain take pain killer and rest for couple of days.and immobilize the Jt by tight crape bandage applied to ankle Jt.
