Benefits Of Wearing A Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint

  • Positions the foot in a 90-degree dorsiflexion which stretches the fascia and, in many cases, relieves that striking “first step.”
  • Sustains stretch to the Achilles tendon and Calf muscles, which have been thought to play a role in plantar fasciitis

Instructions for Use

  • Apply device with the knee bent. This allows the foot to bend up towards knee more easily
  • First attach middle strap over the ankle first to hold the heel in the crux of the splint
  • Attach other straps over foot and around shin
  • Adjust for comfort, not for tightness
  • Adjust Velcro straps on each side to set how far foot bends up towards knee
  • Adjust for comfort, not for excessive stretch
  • Using the toe wedge is optional. It allows the plantar fascia itself to be stretched a little by bending the toes upwards. It can be placed directly under the toes or in between the felt material and the plastic backing
  • It's usually easier to sleep on your side when using night splints. A thin pillow between your feet may help. If sleeping on your back, a large pillow under the back of the knees may help. When sleeping on your stomach, a pillow under your shin may help
  • It is not always necessary to wear the splint through the whole night or even while sleeping. Many (if not most) people will not be able to tolerate a night splint all night, but others find their best success by wearing it all night

Customer Questions & Answers:

What is Plantar Fasciitis?

  • Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the band of tissue (the plantar fascia) that extends from the heel to the toes. In this condition, the fascia first becomes irritated and then inflamed-resulting in heel pain
  • Plantar Fasciitis is caused by repetitive strain and is the most common cause of localized heel pain
  • It is an inflammation of the plantar fascia, a ligament structure that supports the longitudinal arch of the foot. It is a tough, fibrous band of connective tissue that runs from the heel bone to the ball of the foot
  • Common symptoms include a dull, intermittent pain in the heel or arch, progressing to a sharp, persistent pain. It can also be a sharp, piercing pain and/or inflammation through the heel and foot that most often occurs first thing in the morning and gradually disappears with walking

What are the symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis?

The symptoms of plantar fasciitis are:

  • Pain on the bottom of the heel
  • Pain that is usually worse upon arising
  • Pain that increases over a period of months

Do one need a night splint?

If you have more heel pain with the first few steps in the morning or when first standing up from sitting down a long time, you may have tight calf muscles. If you have tried stretching your calf muscles several times a day, especially first thing in the morning before walking, and you still have pain with the first few steps in the morning, then you may need to try a night splint

Why do night splints help?

  • Night splints are intended for improving calf muscle flexibility which is important for plantar fasciitis (heel spurs), Achilles Tendinitis, and other foot and ankle conditions
  • When calf muscles are not flexible, the foot does not bend up towards the knee as easily. This causes more pressure under the front (ball) of the foot when walking or running which causes the plantar fascia “ligament” to pull out of the heel
  • All cases of plantar fasciitis and heel spurs are caused by too much pressure under the FRONT of the foot, not by pressure on the heel, but pressure under the heel may hurt after the condition is present
  • Too much pressure under the front of the foot is caused by tight calf muscles, being overweight, spending too much time on your feet, jumping, squatting, lunging as in tennis, running uphill, or a low arch that causes more pressure under the inside portion of the ball

Is this for right or left foot? 

It fits either right or left foot

Can we wash the AFO Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint-s Wrap?

Yes , Hand wash in warm water and mild soap.Air dry away from heat

What is Lycra?

  • Lycra is a stretchy and forgiving fiber. Lycra includes the fibers such as cotton, silk and synthetic fibers
  • Lycra is more durable and stronger and is  resistant to detergents, lotions and sweat. Lycra has the ability to stretch several times its size and return back to its original shape
