The PhysioRoom Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint The PhysioRoom Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint is a clinically proven method of treating the plantar fascia and Achilles tendon problems. Research has shown that it is effective in over 80 of cases. The idea behind the Night Splint is if you hold the plantar fascia otherwise known as the sole of the foot in a stretch position for a prolonged period, then the tissue adapts and heals better. The ideal time to stretch is overnight while you’re in bed. This is the time that the tissue usually shortens.
It looks a little bulky, but one of the main benefits of the PhysioRoom Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint is it is extremely light weight which means it doesn’t disturb your sleep, it’s simple to apply and held in place with Velcro straps. There are three padded Velcro straps which are clipped into place for controlled comfort. Open these to place your foot inside the Night Splint and then adjust the straps as required. For added extension, a foam insert is provided for extra stability the exterior features an antislip surface.
