trauma induced non-pitting oedema

    Hello everyone

    I saw a client yesterday 9 weeks post injury (tree fell on him). All attention has so far been paid to the very deep wound in his left lower leg (currently has 24 hour suction). His question to me was about the pain in his right foot. There is marked non-pitting oedema isolated to the foot only. It is severely affecting the amount of passive ROM. He also has Type 2 diabetes and the R/1 nail was damaged at the time of the initial injury (wound is slow to heal). It has been xrayed and showed no fracture. My concern is that having been left so long the tissue could organise/fibrose - is this an issue? What is the best treatment pathway for this type of condition?
