    Applying ice or a cold pack after the injury can help to enhance bruise healing. Watch as Dr. Oz talks about first aid for bruises.

    The best treatment for a bruised heal is ice and rest. Over-the-counter (OTC) medications can be used to treat the pain and inflammation. You can also use heal cups in your shoes to help protect and cushion the bruise while it heals. Heal cups can be found in different styles and sizes at most stores that have a medicine and bracing section.
