Plantar Fasciitis Night Splints
Plantar fasciitis night splints are a cumbersome device for pain relief from plantar fasciitis (more on: plantar fasciitis). A night splint is a brace that attaches to not only the foot, but also the ankle and the lower leg and is worn at night when you go bed. Its intended purpose is to stretch the plantar fascia ligament while you sleep.
The treatment of plantar fasciitis can include a number of options, including night splints. Other treatment options include exercises designed to stretch the plantar fascia ligament, ice massaging of the inflamed area, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, as well as shoe inserts/orthotics. Needless to say an individual must review each of the methods for alleviating the pain and discomfort of plantar fasciitis; each offers a different level of treatment and blends into your lifestyle differently. Nevertheless, the most commonly used methods, and among the most effective, are night splints and orthotic shoe inserts.
Both night splints and plantar fasciitis orthotics serve the same function and are intended to treat similar heel pain causing conditions. Conditions that these devices treat are plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, Achilles tendonitis, and pronation. Both these devices are supported by doctors, and both offer substantial relief from pain. However, they are very different in many aspects and those suffering from heel pain should consider their differences carefully before spending money on a product that does not fit their needs.
Plantar fasciitis night splints allow stretching of the calf and plantar fascia while you sleep, which is intended to minimize stress on the inflamed area on the foot. Some findings have claimed that night splints have helped reduce initial pain after getting out of the bed in the morning, however there is no conclusive medical research that can prove this. Additionally, night splints cannot provide the support stretching of the plantar fascia ligament that is needed throughout the day while one is on their feet trying to work, exercise, and maintain their everyday routines. Additionally, despite any relief that these may provide, night splints are not the most comfortable devices to wear. They are cumbersome and bulky and are not the most comfortable thing to wear while attempting to go to sleep.
Lastly, the night splint also comes with another cumbersome feature: price. On average, these devices range from $60-$80 each. This is a high price for a product that is uncomfortable to wear and offers results that are no better than the other most popular alterative to plantar fasciitis treatment.
In addition to plantar fasciitis night splints, orthotic shoe inserts are also widely used. This product is much smaller, much simpler, and much easier to use. Simply place the orthotic in your shoe and let it go to work, physically re-stretching the plantar fascia ligament and alleviating pain, while also facilitating complete healing of the inflamed area. Widely recommended by star athletes and doctors alike, this product has a proven success rate and is also much more affordable than night splints.
