Plantar fasciitis usually strikes with a vengeance with the first steps of ones day, but there is no need to go through that painful experience. Wearing a boot at night can prevent the plantar fascia at the bottom of ones foot from tightening, making for a more pleasant experience when one gets out of bed in the morning. The soft night boot is secured with three contact-closure straps. These secure the foot at a 90-degree angle without being overly restrictive. Outside of the straps, the front of the boot for plantar fasciitis is open, which enhances the breathability of the support. And of course, one can customize the length of the straps to fit ones foot, ankle, and calf. The night brace for plantar fascia pain is free of latex and it fits either the right or left foot.

Recommended Best Practices for Starting to Use Your Brace: It will be best to start wearing the night splint for a short period of time, perhaps only 1 hour the first night, then extending it gradually each night and week. Most splints are also adjustable, so you can alter the tension to suit. It may be that you need to start with it looser and make it tighter over time. The ideal target will be to wear it overnight or for around 4 to 5 hours at a time. This is the perfect time period for the plantar fascia tissue to extend and begin to heal! IMPORTANT DONNING TIPS: If you are putting the night splint on by yourself it may take some time to get used to donning it. The most comfortable way to do so is as follows: place the splint on the floor, - step into the splint - close the strap at the desired fit. - As you get used to your splint you can adjust to the fit that feels perfect for you.
