Frequently Asked Questions

What is plantar fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis (say: plant-er fash-ee-eye-tis) is a common cause of pain in the heel of your foot. Your heel may hurt, feel hot, swell, or turn red. This is called inflammation. The inflammation occurs in the plantar fascia, which is a thin layer of tough tissue that supports the arch of the foot. The pain is usually worse when you first get out of bed.

What causes plantar fasciitis?

The cause is usually some combination of tightness of the foot and the calf, weakness of the foot, improper athletic training, or stress on the arch of the foot. Also, too much use (running too far, too fast, too soon), shoes that do not fit, or certain play or work actions can hurt the plantar fascia. A plantar fasciitis splint can help.

How does a plantar fasciitis night splint treat plantar fasciitis?

Treatment with a plantar fasciitis splint can reduce or get rid of what is causing plantar fasciitis. Treatment can also lessen inflammation.

To decrease the stress on the plantar fascia, you may need to wear shoes with more arch support. You might even need to change the size of the shoes you wear. Athletes and active people may need to spend less time doing actions that cause stress, like jogging, jumping, or running. Sometimes, arch supports, or special shoe inserts may be used.

A plantar fasciitis splint is a device used to treat heel pain caused by inflammation of the thick band of tissue called the plantar fascia. This type of injury usually occurs because you are wearing shoes that don’t fit properly. When you wear ill-fitting footwear, the pressure on your foot increases, causing the plantar fascia to become inflamed. A plantar fasciitis splint helps relieve the pressure on the bottom of your foot while you heal.

The plantar fascia connects the heel bone to the toes and runs along the bottom of the foot. If it becomes irritated, it can cause heel pain. Plantar fasciitis is often associated with running, especially long-distance running. However, walking up and down stairs, standing for extended periods of time, or even sitting too much can irritate the plantar fascia and lead to heel pain.

What are some treatments for Plantar Fasciitis?

If you’re experiencing heel pain, see your doctor immediately. Heel pain can be very painful and make everyday activities difficult. Your doctor may recommend icing the area, taking anti-inflammatory medication, or applying heat to help reduce swelling and discomfort. You may also try wearing orthotics designed specifically for people who suffer from heel pain. Orthotic devices provide support for the arch of the foot and help distribute weight evenly across the entire sole of the foot. Wearing a plantar fasciitis splint at night may be recommended by your doctor in addition to the above treatments.

How to Relieve Plantar Fasciitis Pain?

Steps you can take to help reduce heel pain when you take your first steps after getting out of bed. You can:

Wear a plantar fasciitis splint while you sleep. A plantar fasciitis splint holds the ankle and foot in a position that keeps the Achilles tendon and plantar fascia slightly stretched.
Massage the bottom of your foot across the width of the plantar fascia before getting out of bed.
Always wear shoes when you get out of bed, even if it is just to go to the bathroom. Quality sandals, athletic shoes, or any other comfortable shoes with good arch supports will work.

What is the role of a plantar fasciitis splint for plantar fasciitis in the treatment of plantar fasciitis?

Most people naturally sleep with their feet in a plantar-flexed position, which causes the plantar fascia to be shortened.Β  A plantar fasciitis splint worn at night maintains a neutral 90Β° foot-leg angle and provides constant passive stretching of the Achilles tendon and plantar fascia. The effectiveness of a plantar fasciitis splint at night is believed to derive from the rest and healing provided by constant stretching. In addition, passive stretching helps prevent microtrauma at the plantar fascia–bone interface with the first steps out of bed in the morning.

Several studies have shown that a high percentage of patients using a night splint for plantar fasciitis had improvement of their plantar fasciitis. Regarding the difficulty of patient compliance with a night splint for plantar fasciitis, a prospective trial showed that the comfort afforded by the night splint for plantar fasciitis resulted in 95% patient compliance. Some studies suggest that a night splint for plantar fasciitis are especially useful in individuals who have had symptoms of plantar fasciitis for longer than 12 months.
