The most common severe pain and inflammation of plantar fasciitis is experienced in the morning, which causes the first few steps to be excruciating. The position the feet and ankles are held in as we sleep promotes cramping of the fascia and calf muscles. When feet are pointed under the weight of the blankets, the plantar fascia muscle is contracted (shortened). Those first steps in the morning are painful because the muscle which as been contracted all night is suddenly stretched and pulled.
The Night Splint is designed to provide a gentle stretch to the plantar fascia and Achilles tendon by comfortably positioning the foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion. This gentle stretch helps reduce the muscle contracture, inflammation, and associated pain, and helps promote healing of the injured tendons and muscles. It has also been clinically proven to reduce symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
