Comfort Dorsal Night Splint for Effective Relief From Plantar Fasciitis - Essential Treatment for Alleviation of Night Time Plantar Fasciitis Pain
MARS Wellness Comfort Dorsal Night Splint Â is primarily intended for treating Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendonitis, and may be ideal for other conditions recommended by a physician. The purpose of this light weight plantar fasciitis night brace is to keep the patient's ankle in a neutral position overnight, passively stretching the calf and plantar fascia during sleep. This gentle stretch helps reduce the muscle contracture, inflammation and associated pain. The lightweight, low profile shell is sturdy and breathable and has three padded straps with buckles to ensure immobilization. In addition, the padding features a washable Lycra covering that is cool against the skin for maximum comfort.
About Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain. The plantar fascia is the flat band of tissue (ligament) that connects your heel bone to your toes. It supports the arch of your foot. If you strain your plantar fascia, it gets weak, swollen, and irritated (inflamed). Then your heel or the bottom of your foot hurts when you stand or walk. Plantar fasciitis is common in middle-aged people. It also occurs in younger people who are on their feet a lot, like athletes or soldiers. It can happen in one foot or both feet.
Causes of Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is caused by straining the ligament that supports your arch. Repeated strain can cause tiny tears in the ligament. These can lead to pain and swelling. This is more likely to happen if:
Your feet roll inward too much when you walk (excessive pronationÂ ).
You have high arches or flat feet.
You walk, stand, or run for long periods of time, especially on hard surfaces.
You areÂ overweight.
You wear shoes that don't fit well or are worn out.
You have tightÂ Achilles tendonsÂ orÂ calfÂ muscles.
