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.

What are some signs of plantar fasciitis?

The classic sign of plantar fasciitis is that the worst pain occurs with the first few steps in the morning, but not every patient will have this symptom. Patients often notice pain at the beginning of activity that lessens or resolves as they warm up. The pain may also occur with prolonged standing and is sometimes accompanied by stiffness. In more severe cases, the pain will also worsen toward the end of the day.

How is plantar fasciitis treated?

Treatment with a dorsal night 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 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.

What is the role of a dorsal night splint 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. Night splints maintain a neutral 90° foot-leg angle and provide constant passive stretching of the Achilles tendon and plantar fascia.  Their effectiveness 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 night splints had improvement of their plantar fasciitis. Regarding the difficulty of patient compliance with night splints, a prospective trial showed that the comfort afforded by the night splint resulted in 95% patient compliance.  Some studies suggest that the splints are especially useful in individuals who have had symptoms of plantar fasciitis for longer than 12 months.

A dorsal night splint is a device worn over the foot to relieve pain caused by plantar fasciitis. A dorsal night splint is designed to provide support while you sleep. They are usually used to help reduce swelling and inflammation. Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition affecting the soft tissue located under the heel bone. This tissue connects the calf muscles to the heel bone. When it becomes inflamed, it causes pain and tenderness along the bottom of the foot. Night splints are typically used to keep the foot elevated during sleep.

How can a dorsal night splint help with plantar fasciitis?

Most of us sleep with our feet pointed down, which shortens the plantar fascia and Achilles tendon. A dorsal night splint, which you wear while you sleep, keeps your feet at a 90-degree angle. So instead of shortening your plantar fascia, you get a good, constant stretch while you sleep. They can be bulky, but they tend to work really well. And once the pain is gone, you can stop wearing them.
