A “Doable” Option for NIght Splints
By a trainer
As the name implies, these are splints you wear at night. Most of them look like big boots, which is why I like the Futuro Plantar Fasciitis Sleep Support brand- it’s just less bulky to wear at night than most.
Now the idea behind these splints is to try and keep the foot and ankle structures stretched out all night in order to promote healing and avoid morning pain and stiffness that is so common in plantar fasciitis. Only a few randomized controlled trials have actually tested out this interesting idea. For instance:
-volunteers in one study were randomized to get either custom foot inserts, anterior night splints, or custom foot inserts and anterior night splints (Roos 2006). At 12 weeks, all groups improved significantly with no significant differences found in pain among the three groups at any point in time.
-in another study, patients wore either custom shoe inserts, over-the-counter arch supports, or night splints (Martin 2001). At 12 week follow-up, all groups improved with no significant differences between them.
-night splints were compared to no night splint use in this randomized controlled trial (Powell 1998). After one month, the group that wore the night splints showed greater improvement compared to the control group.
As you can see, these night splints ARE effective in treating plantar fasciitis-but note that they seem to be just as effective as over-the-counter or custom foot inserts too. Therefore, since night splints can be a pain to sleep with for a lot of people, I recommend you try them as a last resort after you’ve tried more conservative things such as foot inserts.

The velcro comes off. Even if you manage to get it to stay on, your foot tries to flex at night so your shin goes numb and you have to put the velcro so tight your toes also go numb.
Don’t get it.

The best thing for plantar fasciitis
By Stacie Jones
I had tried everything for my plantar fasciitis. I did the stretches recommended by my podiatrist,bought the custom orthotics, and received painful injections of steroids in my heels. Any relief I experienced was short-lived and the pain was almost unbearable.I decided to try this splint after suffering for over a year. I could not believe how much better my foot felt after just one night of wearing the splint! I have now been wearing it every night for almost a month and the incredible pain I had been feeling for over a year is almost completely gone!!!It is comfortable,easy to sleep in and more than worth every penny I paid for it.If every step you take is painful and you dread those first agonizing morning steps-BUY THIS SPLINT! You will not regret it.
