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 dorsal hybrid night splint treat plantar fasciitis?

Plantar Fasciitis Dorsal Hybrid night splint treatment 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.

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 dorsal hybrid night splint while you sleep. A dorsal hybrid night 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 support will work.

How does a dorsal hybrid night splint work?

A dorsal hybrid night splint (brace) may be used to treat conditions such as Achilles tendinopathy and plantar fasciitis. The dorsal hybrid plantar fasciitis night splint 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 a dorsal hybrid plantar fasciitis night splint every night for up to several months. Then you can gradually reduce how often you use it as your symptoms go away.

The dorsal hybrid plantar fasciitis night splint brace 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.

A night splint works much like a brace for a broken leg. It keeps the foot stable and prevents it from moving around. Night splints are typically used for short-term treatment of plantar fasciitis.

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.
