Night Splints are helpful tools for those suffering from plantar fasciitis and achilles tendonitis, reducing associated morning discomfort. Available in more rigid/ corrective and soft styles, SoleFit can help find the right splint for you.
Many clients with plantar fasciitis or achilles tendonosis experience pain and reduced mobility with the first few steps in the morning. Because the foot is relaxed and non-weight bearing during sleep, tissues become tighter and can re-tear upon weight bearing in the morning. The night splint helps to keep these tissues stretched out while sleeping in order to reduce discomfort with the first step out of bed.
