Breathable & Lightweight Materials
Unlike other plantar fasciitis socks and boots, the comfortable design of this Achilles tendon brace leaves both your toes and heel open to prevent any uncomfortable sweating or discomfort throughout the night. Thanks to the thin materials, both men and women can comfortably wear this nighttime splint interchangeably on your right or left foot with or without socks.
Dorsal Hybrid Night Splint Provides Custom Fit
This premium night splint features a completely adjustable dorsiflexion strap, perfect for pain relief from a range of heel, arch, calf or foot conditions and injuries. You can modify the splint to best fit you and your plantar condition by adjusting the dorsiflexion strap for the perfect level of stretch and support. Plus, there are supportive straps around your ankle, calf, and foot that can also be adjusted for a personalized level of comfort.
How Does This Night Splint for Heel Pain Work?
Wearing this splint overnight can help prevent, relieve and manage your foot, arch or heel pain. By holding your foot at a 90-degree angle, with a gentle stretch to your fascia, Achilles tendon and calf muscles, this splint can help reduce the pain you’re feeling within your first steps in the morning. When you wear this foot splint nightly, you can begin to help work towards reducing the painful inflammation within your plantar fascia, which in turn can help treat and manage heel pain. One of the best ways to ensure your pain will be fully relieved is to team up the overnight treatment brace with a daytime support. Wearing a PF day brace along with the nighttime splint can help speed up your recovery process and prevent your heel pain, foot drop, or plantar fasciitis from getting any worse during the day while you’re on your feet.
Can Wearing a Dorsal Night Splint Help My Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel and arch discomfort, known for causing stabbing pain (usually within your very first steps in the morning). Inflammation and irritation in your plantar fascia can cause extreme pain that runs across your foot from your toes to your heel bone.
Those most at risk for plantar fasciitis include:
- Runners, especially long-distance runners
- Overweight and obese men and women
- Those who wear shoes with inadequate support
- People who spend most of the day on their feet (nurses, factory workers and teachers)
Wearing a bedtime splint can help ease the pain of plantar fasciitis, as the treatment for PF involves stretching and relieving the plantar fascia. The best thing about this stretching brace is that you don’t need to worry about taking time out of the day, or changing up your daily routine. Simply slip the splint on before going to bed, wear overnight and take it off before your first steps in the morning!>
Helpful Home Remedies for Plantar Fasciitis
When it comes to relieving plantar fasciitis pain, the obvious first step is to stay off of your feet in order to give your plantar fascia time to heal. However, there are a few other things you can do at home to help speed up your recovery process. On top of wearing an arch support splint, foot massages, stretching, performing PF exercises and icing the affected area can all prove to be helpful in an effort to relieve your pain.
With PF, most people will experience intense pain in their heel right away in the morning, when they take their first steps after getting out of bed. This is caused by the plantar fascia that occurs while sleeping. Sound familiar? If so, try these plantar fascia stretching tips right away in the morning, after removing the night splint.
- Gently stretch your foot by flexing it up and down 10 times before standing.
- With your heel on the floor, pull your big toe up and back, pulling toward your ankle and away from the floor. Hold for 30 seconds, repeating 2-4 times.
- Use a towel to stretch out the bottom of your foot.
Arch stretches will not only help with your plantar fasciitis pain but can also help with other injuries such as Achilles tendonitis, heel spurs and other lower leg or foot overuse injuries and conditions.

After dealing with Plantar Facia pain for a year my Dr recommended this brace. It took a while but it worked when injections failed. Yes some may find it difficult to sleep in but try getting used to it if you want to be healed.
Relief for a Achilles Tendon injury
I have been using this brace for my Achilles Tendon injury just at night and I am feeling less pain. It does take time to get use to using the brace at night,but well worth it. My healing time has improved greatly using this brace.
The brace is nice but need some softer material for support around the Achilles’ tendon. Even with socks on I have to pad the area because it hurts after about an hour or two. With it padded it is so comfortable and keeps my foot stable.
