Dorsal Night Splint
Dorsal Night Splint - Pain in Back of Heel - Foot Pain in Morning
Patients will often complain of pain in the back of heel or foot pain in the morning. Using a night splint to help stretch your plantar ligament can give you some relief. We carry many different brands including; DeRoyal, OSSUR, and Darco Dorsal Night Splints. These foot pain splints are designed to fit the front of the leg and foot. Straps are used to pull the toes upward, providing dorsal flexion. This stretching action provides a deep stretch to the Achilles tendon and plantar fascia ligament. Because of its unique design, the dorsal night splint is often called the most comfortable of the night splints.
