Comfortable and Effective Dorsal Night Splint

This simple Achilles tendonitis night splint fits securely and comfortably, holding the foot at a 90-degree angle to the ankle (plantar flexed). This enables the dorsal night splint to treat conditions such as:

The dorsal night splint for plantar fasciitis is made out of high-density polyethylene shell that is durable and stable and straps to keep it in place. The Achilles night splint has a sewn-in memory foam pad that provides support and makes the dorsal foot splint comfortable to wear as one sleeps.

The Achilles splint covers no more of the foot than is necessary, making it more comfortable and breathable. The memory foam pad also helps avoid the pressure points one might develop wearing other night splints.

Of note, some studies have shown dorsal night splints reduce one’s plantar fasciitis symptoms more quickly than traditional anterior night splints that fit against the back of the ankle and bottom of one’s foot. 

Plus, dorsal splints for the foot are generally viewed as more comfortable, making it easier to follow through on this conservative treatment method. It is also easier to move around at night when wearing a night dorsal splint than an anterior night splint.

Night Splint for Achilles Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis and More

Achilles tendonitis and plantar fasciitis occur when one has put too much strain on the Achilles tendon and plantar fascia, respectively, causing pain and stiffness in the corresponding areas. (Learn more about the symptoms and causes of Achilles tendonitis and Plantar Fasciitis) Both are common among runners and can typically be addressed via simple at-home measures. These might include:

  • Resting the foot
  • Icing the injured region
  • Engaging in stretching exercises
  • Using orthotics such as a shoe insert during the day and a night splint while sleeping
  • Taking over-the-counter pain medications
  • Losing weight (if needed)

Using orthotics such as a heel wedge for Achilles tendonitis or an arch support during the day can reduce stress on the Achilles tendon and arch of the support when one is going about his or her day. At night, one can wear a night splint to prevent the Achilles tendon or plantar fascia from tightening up or healing in a shortened length, causing plantar flexion contracture.

The ability of this night splint to hold the foot in plantar flexion also makes it useful after a stroke or for one looking for a foot drop brace to prevent the forefoot from slapping or dragging across the floor.

    Comfortable Splint, tends to stretch and velcro wears out a bit quick

    Great device, but would like it to last longer, perhaps more durable materials can be used

    For Plantar Fasciitis/Heel Spurs

    Seams rub on toes inside and wake me up. Difficult to get on and off by myself. If they made a Med/Large that would be super helpful instead of just S/M and L/XL as size options.

    Design Change Needed

    I wear a size 6 woman shoe; to get the support I need the lower section cuts off circulation. I'm going to add a piece from toe to calf to hold in position better.

    Archilles Tendon stretch

    The brace was a God send. Has worked wonders. I not only sleep with it, but wear it while relaxing watching tv.

    Happy with purchase

    So far, so good. I've had it for a couple of weeks. Appears to be built with high quality materials. Easily adjustable. Comfortable enough to wear all night. I can sleep on my stomach by sticking my foot over the end of the bed (an adaptation that is easier than I anticipated).
