Putting too much stress on your heel bone during the day—due to running or jogging on hard surfaces, standing all day, wearing ill-fitting shoes, obesity, or excessive weight—causes the connective tissues in your foot to develop microtears. Then, while you sleep, unknowingly pointing your toes, these tissues begin to heal in a shortened position. So, when you take your first steps in the morning, you stretch out and retear these tissues, causing sharp, stabbing heel pain.
Plantar fasciitis and heel spur treatment varies from person to person and between different degrees of severity, but healing plantar fasciitis can usually be relatively simple. Rest, ice, and bracing can help speed up the healing process.
This premium, adjustable dorsal night splint holds your foot upright throughout the night for a gentle, consistent dorsiflexion stretch to your plantar fascia, Achilles tendon, and calf muscle, naturally easing and helping prevent pain caused by plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, Achilles tendonitis, and drop foot.
A heel spur is a calcium deposit causing a bony growth on the underside of your heel bone. They are frequently associated with plantar fasciitis, a painful inflammation of the connective tissue (plantar fascia) that runs along the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to the ball of your foot. Heel spurs are often caused by stretching of the plantar fascia and repeated tearing of the membrane that covers your heel bone.
In general, the cause of the pain is not the heel spur itself but the soft-tissue (plantar fascia) injury associated with it. Many people describe the pain of heel spurs and plantar fasciitis as a knife stabbing the bottom of their foot or feet when they first stand up in the morning. Often, this pain later turns into a dull ache and returns after they stand up after sitting for a prolonged period of time.
This versatile plantar fasciitis night splint has many different features that make it a customer favorite and a premium option compared to our Standard Dorsal Night Splint, including:
What truly makes this sleeping foot brace a premium option is its adjustable dorsiflexion strap. Simply pull the strap tighter for a greater stretch or loosen for less support throughout the night.
This bedtime support brace can be worn all night, allowing you to sleep on your side, back, or stomach comfortably. Plus, it is less bulky than most heel spur and plantar fasciitis splints on the market for better quality sleep. It works for both adult men and women, fitting your left or right foot and can be worn with or without a sock on.
Covering the top (dorsal side) of your foot, this night splint leaves your toes and heel open, making it more comfortable than a standard, plantar fasciitis boot. However, you are going to be comparing it to sleeping with nothing on, so it will not be entirely comfortable at first. Please give yourself several nights to adjust to wearing it.
You can easily relax in this brace, thanks to its plush, padded cushioning. Plus, the material is super lightweight and breathable, making this night splint much more comfortable for many than wearing a rigid AFO or heel spur boot for sleeping.
This removable dorsal splint is pretty simple to put on in bed or while sitting down, making your nighttime routine quick and easy. Just slip it onto your foot and secure the brace with its fully adjustable, wrap-around straps. Each fastener is medical grade, making it 10X stronger than standard, retail-grade fasteners for a secure fit while you sleep.
My ankle is OK when I am putting pressure on it but after a while of sitting or laying down, it’s hard to get up because it is so painful. This is the first phrase that I found that continues to put that pressure on my ankle even when I am laying down.
Great product, quality and price. And most important it truly works. I have suffered with plantar fasciitis for many years and I now have adhesions that I can’t break. I put this on several hours before I go for walks and it aids immeasurably in comfort. Great product!!
This night brace noticeably reduces morning pain if I wear it through the night. Much less bulky and uncomfortable to use in bed than the big splint boot. Also easier to put on and remove than the boot I had worn in the past.
I HAVE A SIZE 10 FOOT AND PURCHASED THE SMALL ONE. IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO PUT ON AS THE STRAPS ARE THICK AND SHORT. I DIDN'T BUY THE LARGE ONE AS I DIDN'T WANT TO TRIP OVER IT IF IT WAS TOO LONG....WISH I HAD!!! OTHERWISE IT IS FINE.
Thanks for your feedback and the size large would be about 2 inches taller and the straps would be a bit longer (both around the calf and the foot) and this may have helped. It looks like you may have been on the borderline with the size foot you have. Our Customer Care Team usually has access to other measurements or can advise how an item may fit.
