How do you break up plantar fibroma?

Asked 2 years ago

Do I have to have surgery to break down plantar fibroma, or are there natural methods I can try first?

No, there are a few other ways to decrease pain and inflammation without having surgery to achieve the same relief. Conservative treatments can be done at home or by a Physiotherapist/Physical therapist and Doctor.

Custom insoles which are designed to relieve the pressure on the plantar fibroma while standing or walking, can provide pain relief to the person wearing them. Orthotics have been shown to help distribute weight between different areas of the foot. Shoes with a prominent arch may cause the pain to increase. Massage therapy in conjunction with ice will help reduce pain and inflammation, while stretching the toes backwards will lengthen the structures on the underside of the foot. Stretching the calf muscle will aid in further relieving pain in the foot by decreasing the stress on the structures in the underside of the foot. Steroid injections can also be considered to reduce inflammation, which may allow people to stand/walk with less pain. Should the pain continue to worsen, seek medical advice from a medical practitioner or Podiatrist.

From this website.

There are several options to treat plantar fibromatomis! First, if no pain or injury exists, practice mild stretching to prevent buildup of fibers in the foot and lengthens the ones already present to eliminate plantar fibromas. Stretching also increases the circulation in the foot to facilitate effective cell growth and regulation. Physical therapy is a targeted treatment option that pairs effective stretching with strength exercises to treat the condition and eliminate buildup.

While I am not an podiatrist, I believe that a plantar fibroma is a tumorous growth in the tissue of the plantar fascia. In the past, people have reported success treating it with ACV as they would a wart, however.

In my book Apple Cider Vinegar: Miracle Health System, I say that one may use Apple Cider Vinegar to treat a variety of foot problems, including corns, calluses and warts.

ACV Treatment:

Use an ACV-soaked gauze or cotton-ball and cover with water-proof tape. Keep on overnight, and you also may add vitamin-E oil. In the morning (daytime treatment) remove ACV and apply a castor-oil soaked bandage. This combination treatment works wonders for many!

I also have heard that cayenne or other anti-inflammatory substances can also offer relief and treatment, however always proceed with caution and consult your health care professional or Naturopathic physician.

Blessings of Health, Peace & Love!
