The Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint is by far our most effective treatment for Plantar Fasciitis. The splint is worn overnight and gently prevents the plantar fascia from tightening up over night causing that familiar morning soreness. Also excellent for treatment of achilles tendon and calf muscle injuries. Comes with our FREE Plantar Fasciitis Treatment Guide!
The Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint is designed for comfortable and effective treatment of plantar fasciitis. The splint is worn overnight and stretches the plantar fascia under the foot and the achilles tendon.
What is Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the plantar fascia under the foot. The plantar fascia is a band of tissue that runs from the heel under the foot towards the toes. At the point of insertion at the heel pain and inflammation can occur.
Symptoms are pain in the heel which might radiate under the foot. Pain is often worse first thing in the morning and gets better during the day only to return again later.
How does the Plantar fasciitis splint work?
The plantar fasciitis splint is worn overnight and holds the foot in dorsi flexion preventing the plantar fascia from tightening up. It gently stretches the fascia back to its natural length over time. If the plantar fascia is stretched then less stress will be placed on the insertion at the heel. Comes with a heel sponge wedge that goes inbetween the splint and material and will act as a heel support.
How long should it take to work?
This all depends on the person involved and the severity of injury. Some people will be cured within 2 or 3 days. Others may take longer. Sometimes you need to start gently with it perhaps wearing it for an hour and gradually extending the time as pain allows. Most people usually find by the time they can wear the splint over night for 4 or 5 hours comfortably their heel pain has gone.
Can they help with achilles tendon injuries?
Yes - the splint is equally as effective at stretching the achilles tendon in the same way making it an ideal part of achilles tendinitis treatment. If you have suffered a total rupture of the achilles tendon be sure to get advice from your doctor before using the splint.
The plantar fasciitis splint is padded to provide comfort for the wearer. It is easily adjustable so you can start gently with reduced stretch on the foot and increase as your foot gets used to the splint.
