Default bruised heel

Separated shoulders. This past Friday I blew out my heel on a very harse landing though. I hit the big park jump at Camelback, PA and came up a few feet short. The lift attendee said it was a 45 footer, it was probably closer to 40, unfortunately I only had enough speed to travel 35 feet or so. I probably came down from a height of 20 feet flush on the knuckle, tried to muscle through it, but just collapsed on impact, bounced, flipped, and landed flat on my back on the transition. I believe I tore something in my right heel, nothing too serious though. I also bruised my left ankle, and both knees were a bit weary the next day. I rode for a few more hours until the heel tightened up. Does anyone have any experience rehabing heel injuries? I bruised one some years back and it took forever to get back to 100%.
