If you always wake up to excruciating foot pain, that can be a sign that you have plantar fasciitis. The condition involves irritated tissue running across the bottom arch of your foot.
Typically, the pain from plantar fasciitis ebbs once you get up and start moving. But if you spend a considerable time on your feet, the pain will likely only be waiting for you again in the morning. No one should start their day with pain.
Here are more reasons to start wearing this plantar fasciitis night splint:
- Easy to wear and remove
- Suitable for men and women
- May be worn on the right or left foot
- Flexible hinge design
- Won’t slip off or shift while you are asleep
Sleep sound and wake up to happy feet in the morning.

Size Chart & Fit Help
When should my pain go away?
While there is not an exact time frame, most people begin to feel relief within the first week.
Can I walk in my splint?
No. This product is non weight bearing. Please do not walk in it.
How long should I wear my splint?
Most likely you will need to build up tolerance to wearing your splint for a full night sleep. This process typically takes about 2 weeks. To start, wear your splint for 1-2 hours while you are sitting and resting in the evening. Another option when beginning is to keep your splint near the side of your bed, then 10 minutes prior to getting out of bed apply your night splint. Remember to remove your splint before getting out of bed and walking.
How much flexion do I need to set my splint at?
This is based on your level of tolerance. Typically, you start with a mild flexion and progress to more flexion as time goes on.
It is okay if my toes hang over the edge or do not come all the way to the edge of my splint?
Either fit is fine. The most important point to keep in mind is that you want a good stretch in your foot. If you wear your brace and begin to experience pain relief, it is working. If you are not getting a relief, you may need a different size.

How can the DMEforLess Dorsal Hybrid Night Splint help my foot pain?
Anyone who has had plantar fasciitis I am sure would agree, is no fun. People with this condition often experience heel pain, foot pain, stiffness, and tenderness. The pain is especially intense first thing in the morning as you take your first steps. To treat these symptoms, your physical therapist or doctor might recommend that you wear a night splint that stretches your calf and the arch of your foot while you sleep.
What are the benefits of using a Night Splint?
The most significant benefit for most people who use a night splint is dramatically improving morning pain, or the painful stabbing sensation to the heels with the first few steps in the morning. Wearing a night splint to keep the foot and arch stretched keeps the plantar fascia ligament from contracting and becoming less flexible (and more vulnerable to pain) in the morning.
Wearing a plantar fasciitis night splint can also improve your heel pain in the following ways:
- Improving circulation and blood flow while you sleep, which can help break up adhesions and scar tissue
- Speed up the healing process by allowing you to treat your heel pain while you sleep
How does a night splint work?
Night splints are an extension of stretching and works on the same principal. However, a night splint is worn for longer periods, applying a constant stretch to the plantar fascia. 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.
How often are night splints commonly worn?
Ideally your night splint should be worn all night, but this is often impractical when beginning. Start with wearing your night splint for periods of 15-30 minutes at a time, several times a day, then this should have a similar effect. Night splints can take some getting used to and they do need to be worn consecutively for a week or two before any the pain relief effects are experienced. Night splints can be very helpful with the pain on first weight bearing (e.g. getting out of bed/standing after a long period of sitting) and can help ease this symptom – particularly if worn before first weight bearing – i.e. put it on 10 minutes before you get out of bed.
You should give first lines of treatments such as a night splint, 6 to 12 weeks to have an effect. If you are getting improvement, you should continue these treatments until the symptoms have resolved. If in the future the same symptoms return, then restart the first line treatments. The good new is more than 98% of patient’s symptoms will resolve with this conservative self management. If you do not improve then see your GP. They may refer you to see a physiotherapist or podiatrist
What causes my pain?
The reason for this pain is caused by your plantar fascia, whose job is supporting the arch of your foot and absorbing shock when you walk. If tension and stress on your fascia becomes too great, small tears can occur. Repeated stretching and tearing can irritate or inflame the fascia, although the cause remains unclear in many cases of plantar fasciitis.
What are other common types of conservatize treatment for plantar fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is treated by measures that decrease inflammation and avoid reinjury. Such as:
- Local ice massage applications both reduce pain and inflammation.
- Physical therapy methods, including stretching exercises and night splints, are used to treat and prevent plantar fasciitis.
- Anti-inflammatory medications, such as ibuprofen (Advil) or cortisone injections, are often helpful.
- Sports running shoes with soft, cushioned soles can be helpful in reducing irritation of inflamed tissues from plantar fasciitis.
- Custom orthotic shoe inserts are used to reduce the excess motion of the foot and decrease strain to the plantar fascia.
What if conservative treatments are not working?
If more-conservative measures aren’t working after several months, your doctor might recommend:
- Injecting steroid medication into the tender area can provide temporary pain relief. Multiple shots aren’t recommended because they can weaken your plantar fascia and possibly cause it to rupture. Using ultrasound imaging, platelet-rich plasma obtained from the patient’s own blood can be injected to promote tissue healing.
- Extracorporeal shock wave therapy. In this procedure, sound waves are directed at the area of heel pain to stimulate healing. It’s usually used for chronic plantar fasciitis that hasn’t responded to more-conservative treatments. Some studies show promising results, but it hasn’t been shown to be consistently effective.
- Ultrasonic tissue repair. This minimally invasive technology was developed in part by Mayo Clinic doctors. It uses ultrasound imaging to guide a needlelike probe into the damaged plantar fascia tissue. Using ultrasound energy, the probe tip vibrates rapidly to break up the damaged tissue, which is then suctioned out.
- Few people need surgery to detach the plantar fascia from the heel bone. It is generally an option only when the pain is severe and other treatments have failed. It can be done as an open procedure or through a small incision with local anesthesia.
What is my prognosis?
The prognosis for plantar fasciitis is usually very good. Plantar fasciitis generally resolves with the conservative measures described above. However, in some cases, the condition can evolve into plantar fasciosis, which responds to a different set of treatments than those used for plantar fasciitis.
