What is the best treatment for bone marrow edema in the foot?

Posted by Chris159

My left leg was crushed in auto accident in July 2009 and left foot was also cut up.

I suffered severe soft tissue damage and partially tore my calcaneofibular ligament.  Since the accident my achilles tendon does not have full range of motion and is still somewhat swollen.  I also had burning in both feet beginning on December 8th, 2009 immediately following a reflexology treatment.  The burning sensation was felt only when pressure was applied such as while walking etc..  The burning lasted one month until January 9, 2010 and since then has largely resolved. 

Two days ago 1/13/10 I had a second MRI because I still have pain and it revealed bone marrow edema in foot.  What is the best way to treat this condition?  Rest, elevation, moist heat, icing, physical therapy etc.?  I will do whatever is necessaary for however long it takes to get my feet back.  Both feet are involved.   

Please HELP as it has been almost six months since my accident.


Thank You in advance!!!
