Ease Pain & Accelerate Healing: Sleeping Stretch Boot for Achilles Tendonitis Treatment

Experiencing severe tenderness or sharp pain around your heel with your first steps in the morning?

During the day, connective foot tissues, know as your plantar fascia and Achilles tendon, commonly develop microtears. Then, while you sleep, unknowingly pointing your toes, your foot begins to heal. So when you take your first steps in the morning, you instantly stretch out and retear these tissues, causing stabbing pains.

Luckily, this versatile stretching splint is specifically designed to hold your foot at a 90-degree angle or less, allowing your foot to heal properly overnight to make for a more pleasant experience when you get out of bed.

Supporting a neutral foot position, this soft orthopedic night splint reduces irritation and pain caused by foot conditions including:

  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Achilles tendonitis
  • Heel Spurs

braceability sleeping stretch boot is perfect for achilles tendonitis, plantar fasciitis, and foot drop

Although these conditions might seem similar, they have different symptoms and causes. Below are the various symptoms and causes of each condition:

  • Plantar Fasciitis: Pain and stiffness in the bottom of the heel, usually in the morning. Pain can inflame again during the day after prolonged activity or exercise. This condition can be from being plus size, having high arches or flat feet, or being a long distance runner.
  • Achilles Tendonitis: Pain, swelling, tenderness in the back of your foot above your heel. This pain can be a result of overuse activity, increasing your physical activity too quickly, wearing the wrong shoes (high heels), having flat feet, or if your muscles are too tight.
  • Heel Spurs: This condition often doesn’t have any symptoms. You may have chronic pain from walking, jogging, or running and inflammation may develop in the area. Heel spurs are from calcium deposits built up from the heel bone and can occur over many months. They are a result of strains on the foot muscles and ligaments.

Wearing this boot at night also provides a stretch to tight calf muscles, preventing legs cramps, muscle spasms, and charley horses.

Can This Night Splint Help Prevent Foot Drop in Bed?

Although there are no products currently that can “cure” or "fix" drop foot, wearing this rigid bed shoe at night or while resting will help reduce the pains and symptoms associated with drop foot.

Your doctor may also recommend physical therapy to strengthen your muscles or surgery to minimize harm to your nerves or transfer weight to healthier muscles.

5 Reasons Why People Love This Plantar Fasciitis Brace for Sleeping

  1. Lightweight, Low-profile Fit

    This bedtime support brace has a low-profile and open design, keeping patients cool and dry for better quality sleep. Its lightweight fit makes it a more comfortable option compared to standard, plantar fasciitis boots.

  2. Soft Padded Lining

    The drawback to many braces for plantar fasciitis is that they can be confining, uncomfortable, and interfere with your sleep, which is counterproductive when it comes to healing. This splint is generously padded with a breathable foam and covered with an ultra soft fabric for optimal comfort. Removable for washing, the extra soft lining eliminates skin irritations, preventing blisters and abrasions, making our night splint much more comfortable than many rigid AFO alternatives for sleeping.

    Regardless of the comfortable padded lining, please understand that wearing a boot to sleep in will likely take some adjusting to. For at least the first week, some podiatrists discourage their patients from trying to sleep with it on. Instead, wear it while lounging. After you feel comfortable you can start wearing the boot at night and gradually increasing dorsiflexion stretch.

  3. Removable Foam Stretch Wedge

    Holding your ankle in gentle dorsiflexion, this splint keeps your foot at a 90° angle to your leg. For an even greater stretch, you can add the soft, foam dorsiwedge insert, which elevates your foot to better relieve inflammation. The wedge should be inserted under the padded liner beneath your toes.

    Customizable, dual tension straps from your toe to calf also provide increased dorsiflexion for optimal pain relief.

  4. Versatile Design

    Sized for both men and women, the comfortable night splint can be used on either your left or right foot, with or without a sock. The soft night boot is secured with three quick-release buckles and medical-grade fasteners. These wide and adjustable wrap-around straps allow you to adjust the tightness of the brace to your own specifications. This device is easy to put on and strap up in bed or while sitting down, making your nightly routine quick and easy.

  5. Hard Shell & Non-Slip Tread

    Its durable exterior shell provides additional support to ensure proper foot positioning throughout the night, making this boot one of the best remedies for heel pain.

    The slip-resistant sole is suitable for walking short distances without removing, such as trips to the bathroom in the middle of the night. However, we strongly recommend removing the splint if you plan on walking further than a few steps around the house.

    What a difference!

    I have Achilles’ tendon issues/plantar fasciitis in both feet. It has made getting around very difficult. After one night with the brace my foot with plantar fasciitis is pain free and feels very ground. I still need to wear it but soon I’ll try it on the other foot with hopefully comparable results. The biggest challenges are getting it tight enough with cutting off circulation in my foot and getting used to wearing it in bed.

    Hard to buckle but my foot feels better

    The buckles are on the outside of my foot and are a bit hard to get buckled. When I use the boot, my foot pain is gone in the morning. If I skip a night, it comes back.

    Ordered 2 received 1

    Absolutely terrible. I ordered two but only received one. I tried the one out for a couple minutes. My foot was not secure. It slipped all over and wasn't stable. Will return.
