Rest tends to help temporarily, but as soon as repeated stresses are placed on the foot again, the negative effects on performance tend to return and continue, much like an elbow tendonitis problem in a tennis player. Unfortunately, unlike the knee which can be better supported and stabilized by strengthening the large hamstring and quad muscles, there are virtually no muscles of significant size in the foot that can be strengthened enough to effictively improve the support and stability of the Lisfranc joint that must carry the burden of a moving 6'5" 240 pound person.
Maybe my own injury is similar. A dog bit me in May on top of the 1st knuckle, forefinger. After a bad infection and 2 months of physical therapy, the finger seems to be getting stiffer. All 3 of its joints are inflamed and it doesn't want to straighten.
