| | Painful lump in bottom of wife's foot. GONE! Iced 30mins a day for 14 months.
Several years ago, my wife developed a very painful lump in the middle of the bottom of her right foot from exercise. After buying expensive shoe inserts and spending a bunch on doctors, all to no avail, my wife finally has been able to find a lot of relief. All she does is ice her foot for 30 minutes a day. She uses a plastic ziploc, one quart baggy, puts ice in it, wraps it in a hand towel, and watches TV while the bottom of her foot ices.
After 14 months of icing her foot, every morning, she is now back to doing a brisk walk, an hour per day, at home, on a wooden floor covered with linoleum, which is relatively soft. The bump is almost completely gone and there is no discomfort in the foot. It took a LONG TIME for that bump to go away!
There are no steps that she encounters during the walk.
When she used to walk an hour, before her Plantar Fibromas appeared, she encountered a step during her walk. We think that the constant use of the step, going up it, and then down it on the way back, contributed to the growth of the bump at the bottom of her foot.
She also has had back problems, and she had weak motor movement in her right foot. When she sat down and tested the up or down movement of her toes, her left toes could curl considerably but her right toes could barely move.
So...... she also had one acupuncture treatment, which brought back the motor movements in her right foot.
She has now been walking an hour per day for about two months without a re-occurrence of her painful Plantar Fibromas. Just wanted to pass on our experience.
