Night Splint is primarily intended for treating Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles
Tendonitis, and may be ideal for other conditions recommended by a physician.
The purpose of this lightweight plantar fasciitis night brace is to keep the
patient’s ankle in a neutral position overnight, passively stretching the calf
and plantar fascia during sleep. This gentle stretch helps reduce the muscle
contracture, inflammation, and associated pain. The lightweight, low profile
shell is sturdy and breathable and has three padded straps with buckles to
ensure immobilization. In addition, the padding features a washable Lycra
covering that is cool against the skin for maximum comfort. IMPORTANT FITTING
INSTRUCTIONS If you find your foot or heel moving around in the splint,
tighten each strap until the splint feels snug-this will help keep your foot
in place. Donning Tips place the splint on the floor, step into the splint
close and adjust the clasps while the splint is on the floor. Clasping and
unclasping can take a couple of times of donning the brace to get used to Read
more Recommended Best Practices for Starting to Use Your Brace It will be best
to start wearing the night splint for a short period of time, perhaps only 1
hour the first night, then extending it gradually each night and week. Most
splints are also adjustable, so you can alter the tension to suit. It may be
that you need to start with it looser and make it tighter over time. The ideal
target will be to wear it overnight or for around 4 to 5 hours at a time. This
is the perfect time period for the plantar fascia tissue to extend and begin
to heal! Read more Common Questions/Concerns That are Asked Where Does the

this is a sign that the product is doing its job. It takes a couple of days
for someone who wears a plantar fasciitis night splint to get used to the
stretch provided by the splint. Initially the stretch can be uncomfortable and
can sometimes cause numbness, but once a customer wears it for a couple of
nights they are then able to tolerate the stretch and the numbness goes away.

from customers purchasing the smallest size. Therefore, we do not recommend

Fasciitis Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain. The plantar
fascia is the flat band of tissue (ligament) that connects your heel bone to
your toes. It supports the arch of your foot. If you strain your plantar
fascia, it gets weak, swollen, and irritated (inflamed). Then your heel or the
bottom of your foot hurts when you stand or walk. Plantar fasciitis is common
in middle-aged people. It also occurs in younger people who are on their feet
a lot, like athletes or soldiers. It can happen in one foot or both feet.
Common Causes of Plantar Fasciitis Plantar fasciitis is caused by straining
the ligament that supports your arch. Repeated strain can cause tiny tears in
the ligament which can lead to pain and swelling. This is more likely to
happen if: Your feet roll inward too much when you walk (excessive pronation
). You have high arches or flat feet. You walk, stand, or run for long periods
of time, especially on hard surfaces. You are overweight. You wear shoes that
don’t fit well or are worn out. You have tight achilles tendons or calf
muscles. So how can the splint help my plantar fasciitis? When wearing the
splint, the foot is held in a certain position, called “dorsiflexion“. This
means that the fascia is stretched, not allowing it to contract and become
tighter overnight. The great thing about a night splint, is that the remedy is
quite gentle and the fascia will be returned to it’s proper length over a
period of time. Once stretched out, the plantar fascia will become less tense
and therefore will cause less pain. Read more
