Choose from a Dorsal Foot Night Splint or a Boot Foot Night Splint
for treating plantar fasciitis?
Essentially there are two basic styles of Foot Night Splints on the market.
1. Dorsal Foot night splints are worn on the front part of the foot. Straps are used to pull the toes upward. This pulling effect provides dorsalflexion which helps to stretch the plantar fascia ligament. The dorsal night splint is most often preferred due to comfort.
2. The boot foot night splint is commonly used by most suffers of plantar fasciitis because it has a more rigid, plastic outer layer with a soft inner layer. It also has a more of an adjustable angle of flexion. This type of foot splint is generally worn on the back of the leg and effectively stretches the plantar fascia ligament reducing heel pain.
Choose between Dorsal or Boot Foot Night Splint options for treating plantar fasciitis.
