A Plantar Fibroma Can Cause Severe Arch Pain

A Plantar Fibroma Can Cause Severe Arch Pain

A plantar fibroma is a small growth characterized by a thickening in the fibrous arch tissue on the bottom of your foot known as the plantar fascia. As the condition worsens, additional nodules may appear on the fibrous filaments in your arch and can cause your toes to stiffen and bend. Fibromas can come and go and don’t always cause problems, but be sure to see your foot doctor for any consistent arch pain

Some of the symptoms and causes of plantar fibroma include the following:

Treatments for plantar fibroma

Noninvasive treatments for plantar fibroma will involve resting the affected foot and the optimum placement of custom orthotic shoe inserts to shift weight and pressure away from the fibroma so it can heal.
