Who Can Benefit From Night Splints?
The devices are used for treatment of heel pain, particularly in re-occurring cases. Ongoing medical research has shown night splints to be affective with chronic and acute cases of plantar fasciitis.
Night splints hold the foot in an upright position, stretching the band of plantar fascia whilst sleeping to ease the strain of the fascia with the first step in the morning.
