Need Info about Plantar Fibromatosis

I have bilateral Plantar Fibromatosis.
I have heard about stretching exercises and massage techniques that are helping some people with the disease.
Do you know of any websites, books, journals, or articles where I could learn about these techniques and information about P.F. in general?
I am willing to read medical books (as long as I have a medical dictionary next to me).
I desparately need to educate myself on this disease because I have not yet found a doctor with a significant amount of knowledge on this disease.
Also, if you know of anyone who does have a significant amount of experience dealing with this, please let me know.
I am willing to travel anywhere in the US!

    If you will type Plantar fibromatosis in the Google search engine, there are numerous references available.
    Generally, if the nodules are not painful, the I usually recommend leaving them alone. If there is pain and surgery is needed, then the patient must understand that there is a chance the problem will reoccur and require more radical surgery.
    Hope this helps.
