A Dorsiflexion Night Splint for any Plantar Fasciitis Injury
So what is a dorsal night splint? Dorsiflexion refers to upward motion of the foot when the leg is held in place. If you perform this action, you will immediately notice that the long ligament on the bottom of the foot running from the heels to the toes—the plantar fascia—becomes slightly stretched. This plantar fasciitis splint comfortably holds the foot in that position partially for this purpose.

If you are here at BraceAbility because you have plantar fasciitis, it is possible that the pain increases when you first walk in the morning. It is believed that the plantar fascia ligament stiffens overnight and becomes more irritated when stretched in the morning. This dorsal night splint keeps the foot ligament in that dorsiflexion position for the best recovery from plantar fascia pain.
