What is a Plantar Fibroma
Plantar Fibromas are very common lumps that develop in the arch of the foot.
These lesions are generally benign and are composed of dense, fibrous tissue found in the ligaments.
Complications of a Plantar Fibroma
These nodules generally do not cause discomfort.
But sometimes they can feel like a rock or marble under the arch of the foot.
Treatment of a Plantar Fibroma
Treatment aims to offload the prominent nodule with the use of a custom orthotic with relief area for the mass
Shockwave therapy has also recently been indicated as being beneficial if there is pain associated with the nodules (although the research is based on case studies)
