Bruised Heel

A Bruised heel is actually an injury to the deep heel pad which covers the backside of the main heel bone. The heel pad consists of a thick tissue which situates just under the big toe bone.

Bruised heels can occur due to various reasons, such as sudden twisting, pounding or twisting of bones near the heels, sports injuries, arthritis, and many more.

Bruising of this kind can also be caused due to physical stress, excessive bending and stretching, improper shoe wear and tear, and other injuries to the foot.
