Night Splints for Plantar Fasciitis Relieve Heel Pain in the Morning

If you suffer from plantar fasciitis pain, you probably notice the pain is particularly bad first thing in the morning. There are several ways to ameliorate your heel pain in the morning, and one of the most highly recommended and widely used is the plantar fasciitis night splint. 

Night splints for plantar fasciitis operate on the idea that plantar fasciitis pain is caused, in part, by the tightening of the plantar fascia overnight. A night splint keeps the foot in a flexed position, lengthening the bottom of the foot and therefore preventing the tissues from contracting – eliminating the painful condition of a contracted plantar fascia.  Night splints are very effective in reducing and sometimes eliminating plantar fasciitis pain and assist in healing process. 

There are different types of plantar fasciitis splints available on the market. Some look like a sleeve or a brace; others are a boot; and still others are a long tube sock with a strap that pulls the toe up and back. Quite often a plantar fasciitis sock is just as effective as more cumbersome night splints for plantar fasciitis, but personal preference may dictate which type is better for any individual.
