I have a deep bruise in my right heel. I can't put pressure on it or walk. What kind of medical boot can I use that will allow me to walk comfortably and where can I buy it online.

Deep bruise in right heel...The bruise generlly heals if no weight is put on it..i would advice you 2 weeks rest with no pressur and then gently increrase the pressure and start walking...once you walk there are lot of shoes which are soft and have thick soles to help you in market...

take care...
