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.

How does a plantar fasciitis night splint for heel pain treat plantar fasciitis?

A plantar fasciitis night splint for heel pain 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 shoe 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.

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 night splint for heel pain while you sleep. A plantar fasciitis night splint for heel pain 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.

One of the best ways to treat plantar fasciitis is to rest the affected area. You can do this by wearing a comfortable pair of shoes without heels or high arches. If you must wear shoes with high heels, make sure they fit properly and don’t cause pressure points on the bottom of your feet. Also, try to avoid standing or sitting for long periods of time.

How does a plantar fasciitis night splint for heel pain work?

A plantar fasciitis night splint for heel pain (brace) may be used to treat conditions such as Achilles tendinopathy and plantar fasciitis. The plantar fasciitis night splint for heel pain holds the foot with the toes pointed up. This position applies a constant, gentle stretch to the plantar fascia. It also stretches the Achilles tendon at the back of the heel, preventing it from contracting. You can wear night splints every night for up to several months. Then you can gradually reduce how often you use them as your symptoms go away.

The plantar fasciitis night splint for heel pain brace usually is adjustable, so you and your doctor can adjust it to the proper angle. There are many types of braces. This picture shows one style.

What are some other treatments?

While you use night splints, you can continue other treatments with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), physical therapy, or orthotic devices.

If you experience severe pain while resting, apply ice packs to the affected areas. Ice helps reduce swelling and relieve pain. Avoid applying heat because it can increase blood flow to the area and worsen the symptoms.
