Plantar Fasciitis common problem affects the sole of the foot, where there is a band of tissue that stretches from the heel to the toes. This can become inflamed and sore to walk on, giving the sufferer stabbing pains. The pain is most commonly felt at the heel end, where the tissue joins to the bone. The main symptom of Plantar Fasciitis, is that it will have sore feet when get out of bed in the mornings. Each step will be painful, but will ease off over the next 5 to 10 minutes. However, if rest, the pain can return as the fascia tissue contracts and tightens again.

A night splint is usually utilized by people who are suffering from plantar fasciitis. This device is used to make certain the foot remains in a neutral position throughout the night as the patient is resting. The neutral position will keep the ankle in a position similar to one it would be in when the patient is standing straight. The night splints are considered helpful as they maintain tension in the Achilles tendon thus stretching out the plantar fascia all through the night. Night Splint will help comfortably stretch the plantar fasciitis pain away while sleep and make sure that first step in the morning isn’t painful. Designed with comfort and needs in mind, this night splint is lightweight, and induces a gentle, but effective dorsiflexion.
Night splints are among the many ways of fighting the unbearable heel pain caused due to plantar fasciitis. Since heel pain is the most severe after extended hours of resting the feet, night splints are worn at night to support heels. A night splint supports the foot at 90 degrees and keeps the calf muscles stretched all through the night. Although, a night splint is one of the effective treatments of heel pain, it is also an uncomfortable thing to wear all through the night. Night Splint is a highly functional tool when it comes to treating the symptoms of plantar fasciitis. By keeping the foot, ankle and lower leg aligned properly. This is a highly affordable splint that helps to reduce the pain felt due to plantar fasciitis in the arch and the heel of the foot.
Night splints are a popular treatment for conditions such as Achilles’ tendonitis and plantar fasciitis. The splint holds the foot and forces the toes to up which applies a consistent though gentle stretch to the plantar fascia. It also stretches the Achilles’ tendon at the back of the heel to stop it from contracting. Night splints are usually worn every night for some months. Usage is then gradually reduced as symptoms start to decrease. Night splint for plantar fasciitis can belong to one of two types: posterior (boot night splint) and dorsal. The central difference between both is the position of the splint’s main body, they are:
A Posterior splint (Boot splint): It has, as the name hints, a boot’s shape. The brace’s spine runs below the foot and behind the calf. Posterior night splints are almost always much larger than its dorsal counterparts.
A Dorsal night splint: It uses a firm plastic brace that secures foot and shin to ensure the foot stays at the right angle and, additionally, allows the arch and heel to breathe.
