Night Splints for Plantar Fasciitis
Night splints can provide an effective treatment for plantar fasciitis. The plantar fascia is a thick fibrous band of connective tissue supporting the arch of the foot. Plantar fasciitis is an occurrence of painful inflammation to the foot caused by too much wear to the plantar fascia.
What night splint is right for you?
Night Splints allow stretching of the calf and plantar fascia while you sleep, which is intended to minimize stress on the inflamed area of the foot thereby reducing plantar fasciitis pain.
Night Splints are classified by two main categories:
Dorsal night splints
This type of night splint provides relief for plantar fasciitis and are designed to go on the front of the foot. Straps are used to pull the toes upward, providing good dorsal flexion. This stretches the Achilles tendon and plantar fascia ligament. The dorsal night splint is the most comfortable of the night splints on the market today.
Boot night splint
This is the most common night splint for plantar fasciitis. It has a more rigid, outer layer with a soft inner layer and provides the most adjustable angle of flexion for the plantar fascia. This version of night splint is designed for the back of the foot and is very effective for relief from plantar fasciitis and heel pain.
