splints for the treatment of plantar fasciitis
There is a thick fibrous band of connective tissue
that supports the arch of the foot.
This supportive tissue is known as the plantar fascia ligament. When a person experiences painful inflammation
to the foot caused by too much wear to the plantar fascia or other bio-mechanical pressures causing abnormal pronation, this condition is called
Plantar Fasciitis. In general the pain occurs with the first steps of the morning and is felt on the bottom of the heel.
Those who are activly involved in sports or exercising often notice increase in knee pains along with plantar
Treatment of Plantar Fasciitis
Resting your foot from activity can generally help to heal plantar fasciitis.
In addition, stretching exercises, and night splints can help to relive the pain felt by plantar fasciitis. Surgery is often not necessary
for the treatment of plantar fasciitis. A Night splint worn on the foot while you sleep is the most common natural treatment. Night splints come
in two styles, Boot Style night splint and Dorsal night splint.
The Ossur Airform Dorsal Night Splint provides nighttime
and morning pain relief due to plantar fasciitis. Smaller and lighter than most other dorsal night splints, the Airform
Night Splint is designed to maintain the ankle in a neutral position.
The Body Armor Night Splint is the only night splint that actively engages the windlass mechanism
of the foot, resulting in a specific and sustained stretch to the plantar fascia, and a sustained low load stretch to the
flexor tendons, Achilles tendon and calf muscles. The traction strap allows for minimal ambulation.
Ossur Form Fit Posterior Night Splint is designed with comfort in mind. One Key feature is the unique patented 3-dimensional
padding throughout the shell and adjustable flexion straps that control the amount of stretch provided for effective treatment.
The Exoform Dorsal Night
Splint is a functional and comfortable solution that addresses the common problems associated with other bracing treatments
of Plantar Fasciitis.
