Foot Contusion and bruise from bike fall

A young lady in her 20s came in with a swollen and bruised right forefoot and toes from a fall off her bike. I sent her for an X-ray which did not show any signs of fracture. She was treated with RICE Treatment, topical Anti-Inflammatory gel and some Cox-2 Selective NSAIDS. The swelling and bruising should subside within 1 week but she will be reviewed in a week.
