|Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint|
The Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint allows for a night time controlled application of a prolonged stretch on the plantar fascia for plantar fasciitis or the Achilles tendon for Achilles tendonitis. It has a lightweight sturdy one piece flexible shell. It has incrementally adjustable dorsiflexion straps for controlled stretch without prolonged avascularity. There is a soft cool terry liner and the calf and ankle straps are padded for comfort.
There is an additional toe wedge to be inserted at the end of treatment for an additional stretch. It is worth advising your patients to begin for the first week or more to use the splint without the wedge at night. Then once the patient is used to the splint without the wedge advise they use it on alternate nights to ad a stretch to the Achilles tendon or Plantar fascia. Tendons take some 18 months to remodel as the blood supply is so poor. Therefore, do not promise your patient results over night with this excellent product.
