More about Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis (PLAN-tur fas-e-I-tis) is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes (plantar fascia).
Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning. As you get up and move, the pain normally decreases, but it might return after long periods of standing or when you stand up after sitting.
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, not during it.
What Is a Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint?
Plantar fasciitis night splints were developed primarily to improve morning pain from plantar fasciitis.
And while different types and brands of night splints come in a wide variety of shapes, styles, and sizes, the idea is the same — keep the foot flexed in a gentle stretch while you rest or sleep. This stretch helps the ligaments in the foot stay long, limber, and less susceptible to morning pain.
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.
