For healing just keep his water extra clean, do extra water changes if you can. Add some API Stresscoat and a possibly a pinch of AQ salt to prevent infection.

As for preventing it, that is harder to do. Bettas tail bite for all sorts of reasons.
Because they are bored - so you can try rearranging the tank
because their tails are just really heavy
because they are stressed - add more plants
because they do not have an adequate diet - try feeding him pellets that are low in fillers like Omega One or New Life Spectrum. Also try feed him some frozen (not freeze dried) blood worms.

It could also be from acute stress, the way we bite our nails, is maybe he doesn't like a piece of tank decor or he can see another fish, ect.
