Does exercise help or exacerbate Ledderhose?

I have plantar fasciitis as well as Ledderhose. A year ago my podiatrist remade my orthotics with a dip in them to accomodate the nodules on my left foot. Now my right foot seems to be developing nodules. Does walking/running (if you can stand it) help or exacerbate the condition?

Re: Does exercise help or exacerbate Ledderhose?

Hi, Jan. I had been running for five years before I got my first nodule, then two more appeared after I ran the marathon. I do find that lots of walking and running makes the lumps sore, but you have to weigh that against the pleasure of doing things you love. I've actually switched to speed walking with MBTs instead of running mostly because the marathon damaged my knee. I'd still keep running even with Ledderhose, and you'll find other posts on this site by active people who say the same.

I've been running/walking for maybe 10 years since a lump developed. It hasn't gotten any worse. Like pixi says, once in a while it might hurt a little but that's it.

What if it just hurts too much? Sometimes after walking for an hour, I want to cry.
