Product Description

Size: Medium

Designed to comfortably position the foot in a controlled amount of dorsi flexion to provide a gentle stretch to the plantar fascia and Achilles tendon. This gentle stretch helps reduce the muscle contracture, inflammation and associated pain. The lightweight, low profile shell is sturdy and breathable and has three padded straps with buckles to ensure immobilization. The soft foam interior is brethable to eliminate heat buildup and the adjustable dorsi flexion straps provide a gentle stretching of the plantar fascia and Achilles tendon. The purpose of night splinting is to keep the patient's ankle in a neutral position overnight, passively stretching the calf and plantar fascia during sleep. The intent is to allow the fascia to heal. Clinical study of night splinting has yielded mixed reviews. Some reports claim improvement in approximately 80 percent of patients. (11) In contrast, one study of 116 patients showed no benefit after three months compared to no treatment. (9) source: Alternative Medicine Review , June, 2005 by Mario Roxas

Hello,
I've had Plantar Fascitis for over a year now. Finally a few months ago, I read about night splints online and decided to try them. I tried two other night splints before this one, the Futuro Plantar Fascitis Sleep Support and the Strassburg Sock, both of which failed to keep my foot at a 90 degree angle at night and relieve pain the morning. I regret wasting my money on those. Then I decided to try a "boot" like one instead and got this one because it was the cheapest. I've worn it for a week and can feel the difference and its a very good product. It keeps my feet virtually immobilized and once you get it adjusted, putting it on or taking it off is easy, you just undo the buckles. Takes 5 seconds, even in the middle of the night. Also, its pretty comfortable too, but at this point I am used to wearing foot contraptions to bed. I am definitely considering purchasing a second to prevent PF from reoccurring in my other foot.
My only problems with this product are that if I put in the removable wedge (for extra stretching), my foot goes numb and it takes a bit of time to figure out the correct adjustment of the straps that will keep you foot in place but won't cut off circulation. Also, its pretty big, which makes it not so portable.

I agree that this is a hard night splint to get used to sleeping in,
but it WORKS! It's the only one I've found that creates enough pull
on the fascia and it doesn't squeeze your toes like the soft splints
do.

I'm struggling with plantar fasciitis (pf). I tried the Futuro soft splint first - the only way to make it work was to adjust it so tightly that your foot and toes went numb and I couldn't sleep the night in it. I also found that the soft splint would never hold my foot in the right position all night which is critical. The splint I'm reviewing here is significantly better. It definitely holds your foot in the right position and I have noticed an improvement after only 3 days of using it - I wake up with little or no pain from the pf. I have found that I can walk in this splint (short trips to the bathroom) and it's not too bad to sleep in. The one drawback is that sometimes it can be uncomfortable and a few times the discomfort has actually woken me up in the night. I don't consider that a showstopper - you're wearing a contraption to bed so I don't expect it to be completely comfortable and I consider it worth it to fight the pf. Overall this is a good product at a good price and I recommend it.

Size Name: Small
I had a night splint I got from a Podiatrist several years back, but seem to have misplaced in a recent move, and ordered this as a replacement. It has all the same straps across calf, ankle and foot, and up the sides. it's easily adjustable and everything attaches with velcro. One surprise - also included is a small white wedge under the toe, which I must have missed in the product description, a nice addition.

The only reason I didn't give a 5 here is that I generally wear a women's size 9 shoe, and my toe comes all the way to the end of the splint. A fit for me, but if you have a wide foot, or normally wear a 9 1/2 you might want to consider the large splint.

As a newer runner training for long distance triathlons I began having trouble with PF. Last winter after I finished (barely) an Ironman, my doctor recommended I simply stop running for a month. I had no upcoming events, so I did that, and it worked. Up until a month or so ago. I have been building up mileage towards an 18 mile trail run in September and once again the PF has returned. This time I want to treat it before the event, rather than suffer through and rest afterwards. So I bought this night split.

The first thing I found out is that there are some quality and sizing issues:
Quality: The middle strap does not lock tightly.. one side of it pulls loose. It stays put, barely, so I decided not to return it and try it out for awhile. This may just be a minor issue with my particular unit, so I wouldn't say it's a reason not to purchase. The rest of the boot seems to be solidly built.

Sizing: I wear a 9 or 9 1/2 men's shoe, so I am right in the middle of the Men's Medium (8 to 10 1/2). Yet my toes come right up to and my big toe sticks out over the edge of the padding. Anybody with a 10 or 10 1/2 foot would actually need to buy a large. While this part is too short, the straps are too long. I have them strapped down as tightly as they will go and they barely hold my foot in place. Maybe I have really skinny legs? I doubt it.. I have fairly well developed runner's calves and a normal width foot. I suppose I could cut down the padding to get them a little tighter, but this should be designed better.

So far I have only worn the splint for an hour or two at a time. I have not tried to sleep in it overnight. Laying down in it is indeed fairly uncomfortable, but I expected that.

It is hard to overstate how great these night splints are. After 15 years of gradually worsening foot issues, these almost completely eliminated my pain in a matter of days.

They seem to have cured my plantar fasciitis, and I find they are helpful for ALL of my (many) other foot issues, as well. Because of my short Achilles tendon, I find that shoes and orthotics with a heel are more comfortable, so I was really surprised that the splints, which force my feet to hold a totally flat position, worked. I can only assume that stretching the ACL gently for long intervals while the feet are NOT bearing weight is uniquely helpful. Anyone with tight Achilles tendons and/or painful insteps like I had might find these worth trying. Obviously they won't work for everyone or everything, but given the cost, they are certainly worth a try, even for foot issues other than plantar fasciitis.

Sleeping in them is a challenge, but it is doable if the straps are adjusted carefully. When they are too tight, I wake up with numbness. Meanwhile, I find that even if I take them off halfway through the night, or even sometimes skip a night or two, my foot pain has not returned. One reviewer complained that the sizing was quite loose, but there are two adjustments for each strap - one velcro, one of the sort used on backpack straps. If you adjust carefully, the sizing range is quite broad. Other reviewers were bothered by the lack of symmetry. The boots don't distinguish left and right, but since they are not fitted to the sides of the feet, it really doesn't matter at all. I guess some people may object on aesthetic grounds to the fact that the straps fasten on the right side of both feet, but practically this makes no difference in how the splints work.

And work they do.
