A Night Splint is recommended to speed the healing of Plantar Fasciitis. Our bodies do the majority of repair or healing at night when we sleep. If the foot is held in the proper position, a right angle at the ankle, it will allow the fascia to heal in an elongated state, therefore reducing the risk of re-injury upon weight bearing. A night splint prevents passive plantar flexing, which causes the morning pain and discomfort of that first step out of bed associated with plantar fasciitis.
If the fascia is not held in proper position, the fascia will tear upon bearing weight. This is not only painful but will also cause more injury. Over time scar tissue forms leading to complications such as Heel Spurs. If not healed properly by using supportive footwear with custom arch support like the ezWalker™ during the day, and wearing a Night Splint at night, Plantar Fasciitis and Heel Spurs may lead to painful and unnecessary surgery. Healing injuries due to Sprains and Strains can also benefit greatly from the use of a Night Splint. Speed up the healing process of plantar fasciitis with this low profile splint.
