Suffering from plantar fasciitis? Many people sleep with their feet pointed down, contributing to a shortening of the plantar fascia, the ligament connecting the heel to the front of the foot and Achilles tendon, causing pain. For a non-evasive way to help reduce pain, consider these wallet-friendly splints designed to help keep feet at a 90-degree angle by applying a constant, consistent strain while sleeping. Night splints can be especially helpful for patients who are required by their doctor to do routine stretching to alleviate pain and discomfort, but don’t always follow through. These splints can take some getting used to, so consider wearing them several hours during the day to get accustomed to their fit and feel. And remember to always ask a doctor for a recommendation before selecting any medical device. Here, FN has curated a series of splints that can be adjusted for a customized fit.
