Soft Plantar Night Splint – Plantar Fasciitis Treatment
Suffering from plantar fasciitis and foot pain in the morning? Using a medical-grade night splint offers one of the best possibilities for overcoming such symptoms.
The Main Cause of Morning Pain in the Feet
The soft plantar night splint is worn during sleep, providing sufficient degree of dorsiflexion and reduction of the typical morning symptoms. Plantar fasciitis produces the most severe pain during the first few steps each morning. The use of a soft splint keeps the ankle and the foot in the best possible position, reducing the risk of cramping in the morning.
The plantar fascia muscle contracts during the night because of the blanket’s weight. The muscle remains in this shortened position all night, and stretching it in the morning results in pain.
Our medical-grade night splint can be used in the case of numerous medical conditions that produce heel pain. These conditions include:
• Plantar fasciitis
• Heel spurs
• Achilles tenditis
• Pronation syndrome
• Muscle tightening
• Plantar flexion contractions
Using a Night Splint to Overcome the Pain
The night splint comes in several different sizes suitable for individuals ranging from petite women to tall men. It stretches the plantar fascia gently to reduce the risk of experiencing muscle cramping.
The splint is used to position the foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion, which decreases both the pain and the inflammation stemming from plantar fasciitis and similar conditions. Using the splint each night enables injured tendons and muscles to heal faster.
The night splint should be used in combination with daytime treatment. Most individuals experience the greatest pain reduction and the quickest recovery by using the splint during the night and undergoing acupressure and other treatments during the day.
Most individuals using the splint experience significant pain reduction within 30 days. The product is provided with a 60 day pain-free guarantee. Individuals that don’t experience pain reduction within this period will be eligible for a full refund.
The Soft Night Splint is excellent for those who have a mild case of Plantar Fasciitis/Morning foot pain. It's comfortable and can be adjusted for different degrees of dorsiflexion. For severe cases of morning heel pain from Plantar Fasciitis we recommend the Rigid Night Splint.

Easy to wear. Really helps with my pain
Great product. Really works. The soft shell makes it comfortable at night.
Works as intended
The straps are supposed to keep ankle flexed, however does not work. Tried to fully flex ankle and tighten straps as much as possible, still able to flex ankle. If anyone wants to try mine brand new just e-mail me : [email protected]
This product worked well the first week and definitely relieved the cramping when getting up in the morning and putting weight on the foot. After a week the binding seemed to get a little more slack and the toe plate fell towards the arch. I think the concept of a less rigid casing is good, but the material seems to shrink.
I have tried this many nights and it doesn't stay put. My foot ends up sliding and it doesn't hold it in the right position. Also the material is not breathable and I end up getting so claustrophobic that I rip it off in middle of the night. Also my foot cramps in it. I think a hard shell almost like a cast would be a better idea as it would hold your foot in the right position. I am desperate for a cure for plantar fasciitis as I've been in pain for almost a year. But this one did not work.
My boyfriend has had plantar fasciitis for about 2 months now. I'm a physician (although NOT an orthopedist or a podiatrist!) and we bought this splint, and the rigid splint also on this site, about 2 weeks ago. This product doesn't seem to stay in place all night no matter how we wrap or adjust it. The toe plate slips towards the arch and the lower calf piece pulls down towards the ankle, so within a couple of hours it's not providing much stretch, although we know it's the right size for him. We've both tried to put it on, and although it has helped some, the rigid splint has been FAR better. I think some design modification might help, such as putting a semi-rigid piece in the arch, or perhaps pulling the toes up with a strap that goes up and over the toes rather than to the side of the toes. I did see some socks on the site which I think might do a better job of maintaining position and stretch without being rigid, although we haven't tried those products.
I have a rigid splint and find it impossible to sleep comfortably with it on. I thought I'd try this instead and it does fairly well. Its not rigid so it gives my foot some play but its better than nothing and was not expensive.
