What is a Sock Night Splint?
If you’ve ever woken up in the morning with heel pain, you know how debilitating it can be. You’re not alone! Morning heel pain is one of the most common symptoms of conditions like plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. You may be doing everything right — stretching your feet daily, wearing orthotics in every pair of shoes, and icing your feet after activity. But sometimes, your feet need a little love during the night too!
You may be asking yourself what a Sock Night Splint is and how it differs from other night splints that you may have seen or heard about. The sock night splint is a lightweight device that is worn at night to help reduce pain in the heel of the foot. Unlike other night splints on the market which are bulky and can be hard to put on, the Sock Night Splint is a simple two-piece design, with a comfortable compression sock and a plastic splint. To put it on, just hold the splint to the bottom of your foot so it gently presses upward into your arch, and slip the sock over both the splint and your foot.

Unlike traditional night splints and braces, our Sock Splint is lightweight and comfortable to wear, made from soft materials.

How to use a night splint
Night splints are easy to use. Simply hold the plastic splint firmly against the bottom of your foot, and slip the sock over it so that both your foot and the splint are encased in the sock. One of the benefits of the Sock Night Splint is that, unlike with orthotics, if you are only experiencing heel pain in one foot, you only have to wear one splint! You also only need to wear night splints for as long as your feet are hurting. Be sure to remove your night splint if you need to get up in the middle of the night to get a drink of water, use the bathroom, or check on your kids!
How do night splints work?
Morning and nighttime heel pain are caused by the muscles and ligaments tightening up while your body is stagnant during the night. Night splints work by gently stretching or flexing the bottom of your foot as you sleep, so you wake up pain-free!
How long do you have to wear a night splint?
Night splints are best worn overnight for the duration of your sleep — that might be somewhere between 6-9 hours. But they can also be beneficial to wear when you’re at rest, but not actually sleeping. If you’re doing a movie marathon with the kids this weekend, prop your feet up on an ottoman or stool, and wear your Sock Splint for a few hours as you relax.
As long as you are experiencing heel pain in the morning or daytime, the Sock Night Splint can be a constructive tool. If you get to a point where you are no longer feeling pain in your heels or feet, feel free to discontinue use and tuck it away so you can find it again should your pain come back.
