Best Plantar Fasciitis night splint & foot brace
A good Plantar Fasciitis Night splint (Plantar Fasciitis brace) is an essential tool for treating your Plantar fasciitis pain. It is one of the key pieces of equipment used by Plantar fasciitis sufferers. They can be a little uncomfortable to wear at first, since you need to wear them while you sleep at night.
A Plantar Fasciitis night splint is designed to be worn at night for varying periods of time (as long as you can take) and work by preventing the foot from being ‘dropped’ while sleeping and help provide much needed pain relief.
Which is the best plantar fasciitis night splint?
The best plantar fasciitis night splint is the one that you continue wearing! Below we discuss the factors that make a good night splints:
- Comfort level
- Ability to tighten
- Ability to keep your foot flexed
- Type of night splint
Comfort level of you foot brace and night splint
All of the above Plantar People night splints have been tested for comfort, on our customers foot, heel and leg (the three areas of physical contact). Whether you source your splints from us or another shop, you want to make sure that they’ve been built for comfort.
With that being said although they’re designed to treat pain in your feet, some discomfort while wearing is to be expected. This is simply because you’ll be attaching something bulky to your foot and leg that you’re just not used to. A small number of people find that splints have a negative impact sleep which can of cause affect health and healing. If this proves to be the case it may be worth considering another treatment or therapy method.
Ability to tighten your night splint
The ability to tighten your night splint is important. You’ll need to be able to ensure that it supports your foot size and foot shape, since everyones feet are different. Being able to adjust the tension is also important for your comfort level too, so don’t overlook this feature.
It’s also important that you can also tighten your night splint at the places where it attaches to your leg and foot. This is again needed for comfort.
Ability to keep your foot arch flexed
This sounds like a given but whichever night splint that you choose, it needs to be able to keep your foot arch flexed adequately to help reduce inflammation (this is the whole point!).
Our splints above have been tested and do this well, our customer feedback also reflects this too, so that you can shop our best splints sold above with confidence.
Type of night splint
Ideally you want to wake up in the morning with a pain free foot. To get this kind of pain relief, you need to choose the right type of night splint. As we said earlier, the best kind is the type that you can consistently wear. We recommend people start with a ‘dorsal night splint’ rather than a full boot splint, simply because they’re more comfortable.
If dorsal splints don’t work for you, only then do we recommend switching to the foot night splint boot that you can also find sold above.
How do Plantar Fasciitis foot braces and Plantar Fasciitis splints work?
Plantar Fasciitis is caused by inflammation of the Plantar Fascia connecting tissue that runs between the heel and the toes. These foot braces help fix the heel in position while they stretch the foot and Plantar Fascia tissue so that it stays in the dorsiflexion position.
By remaining in this stretched position healing blood flow is promoted to the area. As well as this, healing in the ‘stretched’ position occurs while you sleep, so when you take those first steps of the day you don’t stretch and thereby damage the plantar fascia all over again. These can be worn as an alternative to a Plantar Fasciitis Night Sock.
How long do you have to wear a night splint for plantar fasciitis at night?
You should use your night splint for around 8 hours or the length of your nights sleep. For pain relief in your foot and heel, there are few treatment options as effective as a foot brace or night splint.
Benifits of Night Splints For Plantar Fasciitis and Plantar Fascia

A night splint is an excellent option for treatment of plantar fasciitis. A doctor may recommend it as a component of a complete plan of treatment, which may also include stretching exercises and other orthotics.
Do plantar fasciitis night splints work?
Yes Plantar Fasciits night splints work by stretching increasing blood flow to heal the damaged Plantar Fasciitis at night as well as reducing inflammation. They keep your foot and the tissue flexed to reduce morning foot and heel pain. A night splint works by maintaining the plantar fascia length (with a stretch) and allows the ankle joint to move in a plantar flexion position thereby reducing pain. This is one of the best option for your pain.
Top night Splints are made for stretching and preventing the tightness of the fascia tissue in the morning, and it can also help heal Achilles tendon issues and heel pain. This is a very effective treatment that is easy to use.
The best splints supports the arch of the foot and keeps the plantar fascia stretched during the night while you sleep. This allows wearer to sleep with less pain.
