Are there any exercises to reduce or prevent plantar fibromas? I have one on my instep, and I just got a cortisone shot in it.

In brief: Not really

Plantar fibromatosis is hereditary.
You can try good supportive shoes and custom foot orthotics to lessen plantar facial strain. Unfortunately, cortisone injections and ultrasound therapy only manage the masses. In severe cases, they can be surgically removed, but it isn't a pleasant surgery.
