How Can Different Types of Ankle Splints Help Treat Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendonitis?

Plantar fasciitis is a condition that involves the inflammation of the plantar fascia (the flat band of tissue or ligament that connects the heel bone to the toes). This condition is caused when the ligament that supports the arch of the foot is strained. For treatment, a plantar fasciitis ankle splint or a night ankle splint is used. The brace or splint will help hold the foot with the toes pointed up and with the foot and ankle at a ninety-degree angle. And because a common symptom of plantar fasciitis is the tightening up of the plantar fascia at night, the brace or splint is worn overnight to allow gentle stretching of the plantar fascia and to prevent it from tightening up.

Achilles tendonitis, on the other hand, is a condition that involves pain in the Achilles tendon, considered to be the biggest tendon in the human body, which connects the calf muscles to the heel bone. Although the Achilles tendon can withstand extreme stress, it is also prone to tendonitis, which is often caused by overuse and degeneration. Wearing a tendonitis ankle brace is an effective way to treat Achilles tendonitis. An Achilles tendonitis ankle brace specifically helps reduce the irritation and strain brought about by this condition.

Here at BraceAbility, we have two of the best night splints for the treatment of both plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis, the Active Innovations Dorsal Night Splint and the Corflex Padded 90 Degree Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint.

The Active Innovations dorsal night splint for plantar fasciitis is ideal for the treatment of painful Achilles tendonitis; the Corflex Padded 90 Degree is a specially designed night splint that effectively deals with plantar fasciitis.   

Best Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint and an Effective Night Brace for Achilles Tendonitis

Needless to say, a night splint cannot be effective unless a patient wears it. And one of the most important features of the Active Innovations Dorsal Night Splint compared to other plantar fasciitis foot splints is the comfort that it provides to the wearer. It is a lightweight and cool plantar fasciitis night splint that is easy to put on; thus, patients are willing to wear it for longer periods, therefore resulting in a faster healing time.

On the other hand, the Corflex Padded 90 Degree Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint, as its name suggests, is a specially designed night brace that effectively deals with plantar fasciitis. This ankle splint features a polyethylene shell with soft padded cover and straps to provide maximum patient comfort and is constructed of high-density, rigid shell and replaceable soft padded cover and contact closure. The Corflex night splint is indicated for the treatment of plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, plantar flexion contractures, heel spurs, and other lower leg overuse injuries
