Brace and Splint.
What Exactly is Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the thick tissue on the
bottom of the foot. This tissue extends from the heel to the ball of the foot,
creating the arch of the foot. When this tissue becomes inflamed, it can cause
a sharp or dull pain in the heel that will remain until the inflamed tissue has
ample opportunity to rest. Plantar fasciitis can be caused by arch problems
including flat feet or high arches, obesity or sudden weight gain (such as the
weight gain associated with pregnancy), regular long-distance running, as well
as sudden injuries. Plantar fasciitis can even be caused by wearing shoes with
poor arch support. Regardless of what caused your plantar fasciitis, a night
splint is likely to help.
How do Night Splints Help?
The first course of action in treating plantar fasciitis is
allowing the tissue on the bottom of the foot to rest. Night splints designed
to treat plantar fasciitis do this by holding the inflamed tissue in a
stretched position that reduces pain while relaxing the foot. Using a plantar
fasciitis night wrap or splint on a regular basis can significantly alleviate
the pain associated with plantar fasciitis. Depending upon the injury that has
led to the condition, a night splint may be enough to relieve your foot pain
Achilles tendonitis is another common foot condition that can be
alleviated with a proper night splint. Achilles tendonitis occurs when the
Achilles tendon (the tendon in the back of the heel) becomes strained or
inflamed through overuse, a sports injury, a lack of flexibility, or age. Like
plantar fasciitis, the first course of action in treating Achilles tendonitis
is allowing the tendon to properly rest.
How a Splint Relieves Pain Related to Achilles Tendonitis
Night splints designed to treat Achilles tendonitis keep the heel
immobile overnight, preventing you from flexing or otherwise irritating the
tendon in your sleep. Regular use of night splints can help reduce irritation
and even reverse Achilles tendonitis without resorting to medications,
injections, or painful surgery. The body has tremendous power to heal itself
when it is allowed to rest, and proper rest is precisely what night splints
Other Types of Foot Injuries
A night splint can be an effective remedy for treating all sorts
of other foot injuries. By immobilizing the foot, ankle, and toes, an
appropriate night splint or wrap can give your foot the time it needs to
recover from such injuries as sprains, minor breaks, and other types of
Finding the Right Night Splint for Your Ailment
Different injuries call for different night splints. It's
important to find a night splint that is suited to the size of your foot, your
specific injury, and your personal comfort preferences. National Brace and
Splint offers a variety of night splint types to suit all sorts of
Adjustable Night Splint - An
adjustable night splint is a great choice for ensuring maximum comfort while
attempting to recover from a foot injury. Adjustable night splints generally
have two side straps that can be tightened or loosened to find the perfect fit.
This type of night splint gently stretches the foot while reducing muscle
contraction, inflammation, and pain. Adjustable night splints are useful in the
treatment of both plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis.
Dorsal Night Splint - Dorsal
night splints are designed to hold the foot in a neutral position overnight.
This style of night splint is generally lighter-weight, less cumbersome, and
more comfortable to sleep in than other forms of night splints. By gently
stretching the plantar fascia, dorsal night splints alleviate the morning pain
associated with plantar fasciitis and allow the foot ample time to rest and
recover while you sleep.
Plantar Fasciitis Wrap - Aside
from multiple plantar fasciitis night splint options, National Brace and Splint
also carries a variety of plantar fasciitis wraps. Wraps tend to be less restrictive
than splints, which makes them more comfortable for certain patients. Wraps
also have the benefit of being flexible and thin enough to fit into most
regular shoes. If you're looking for a pain-alleviating solution that can help
relieve your plantar fasciitis or Achilles tendonitis both day and night, a
wrap may be just the solution you're looking for.
Preventing the Need for Drastic Measures with Simple Treatments
With Achilles tendonitis or plantar fasciitis night splints,
patients can help reduce their pain and improve the health of their feet
without resorting to drastic measures. In many cases, an appropriate night
splint that is well sized and well-suited to a person's particular injury can
be enough support to treat chronic foot pain. This simple and natural measure
is a cost-effective alternative to painful medical procedures such as surgeries
or cortisone shots. The right combination of night splints, icing, and
appropriate care during the day can go a long way toward improving your foot
