Plantar fibromatosis refers to the more invasive, rapid-growing and multi-planar fibromas. A plantar fibroma refers to a benign nodule that grows on the bottom of the foot and usually appears in people aged from 20 to 60. It usually grows slowly, and is less than an inch in size. Here are several exercises that may help to reduce the possibility of the onset of plantar fibromatosis. Massage the plantar fascial press up and down the plantar fascia at the front and rear of the sole of the feet by the thumb, in order to relieve the tension of the fascia and promote blood circulation in the feet. Pull the plantar fascia: fix the heel with one hand, hold the toe with another hand, and force the toe up until the fascia feels being pulled, in order to relieve the tension of the fascia and increase the elasticity of the fascia. Pull the Achilles tendon: the feet should keep a lunge, with the hands on the wall, the sole of the back foot should be completely grounded so the bottom of the foot has a feeling of full extension.   Keyword: plantar fibromatosis exercises.
