HOW DOES A NIGHT SPLINT WORK? Night splints should be worn for long periods of time to apply a constant stretch to the plantar fascia. Several studies show that wearing a night splint “significantly improves” symptoms of plantar fasciitis. Foot and ankle braces help keep your arch supported and cushioned while walking or moving, reducing inflammation that may prologue healing time. You should wear your foot brace nightly for 6 to 12 weeks to see an effect.

Plantar fasciitis typically causes a stabbing pain in the bottom of your foot near the heel. The pain is usually the worst with the first few steps after awakening. Although it can also be triggered by long periods of standing or when you get up after sitting. The pain is usually worse after exercise.
Your plantar fascia is in the shape of a bowstring, supporting the arch of your foot and absorbing shock when you walk. If tension and stress on this bowstring become too great, small tears can occur in the fascia. Repeated stretching and tearing can irritate or inflame the fascia.
Even though plantar fasciitis can develop without an obvious cause, some factors can increase your risk of developing this condition. They include:
- Certain types of exercise. Activities that place a lot of stress on your heel and attached tissue — such as long-distance running, ballet dancing and aerobics — can contribute to the onset of plantar fasciitis.
- Foot mechanics. Flat feet, a high arch or even an abnormal pattern of walking can affect the way weight is distributed, causing plantar fasciitis.
- Excess pounds put extra stress on your plantar fascia.
- Occupations that keep you on your feet. Factory workers, teachers and others who spend most of their work hours walking or standing on hard surfaces can damage the plantar fascia.
Ignoring plantar fasciitis may result in chronic heel pain that hinders your regular activities. Changing the way you walk as a way to relieve plantar fasciitis pain might lead to foot, knee, hip or back problems.
How Does a Plantar Fasciitis Splint Work?
There’s a reason that both rest and stretching are two of the most common conservative recommendations for plantar fasciitis. Stretching helps lengthen and strengthen the ligaments and tissues in the feet, which helps break up painful adhesions, take some of the pressure off painful heel spurs, and promote blood flow to the injured area. Rest allows the injury to heal without extra strain, new traumas, or complications.
A plantar fasciitis night splint helps combine these two effective conservative treatment methods–keeping your foot or feet gently flexed in a stretch while you sleep. Since morning pain is largely the result of a tight, damaged plantar fascia ligament trying to adjust to the rigors of walking after a night of inactivity, a night splint helps smooth the transition from night to day, without the the stabbing pain of those first few steps.
Do Night Splints Work for Plantar Fasciitis?
Several key studies show that wearing a night splint “significantly improves” symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
Night splints are especially effective when used as part of a day/night treatment method, tag-teaming the nighttime stretch with the use of orthotic inserts, stretching, and icing during the day. This approach helps keep the arch supported and cushioned while walking or moving about, reduces inflammation that may prologue healing time, and extends the power of conservative treatment into the nighttime hours.

Night Splints are not fun to wear. But they work, which is why doctors have recommended them for decades. They are an excellent option to treat plantar fasciitis without having to undergo surgery or cortisone injections. However, it takes time to become accustomed to having a splint on your foot while you sleep. We kept this in mind when developing this brace, adding comfort and adjustability extras to help.
