If you are suffering from painful plantar fasciitis, heel spurs or both, you are no doubt looking for something to help relieve the pain. These conditions can render you immobile at their worse, and even at their best, they are annoying and debilitating to a point. The best way to get back to your daily activities pain free is rest and a regiment of exercises combined with regular application of ice packs and anti-inflammatory medicine.
This is good advice and has been shown to offer relief to some patients, but if you have tried all these things and are still in pain, your doctor may recommend that you start using a night splint. Plantar fasciitis and heel spurs are caused by an inflammation of the plantar fascia, the fibrous tissue connecting the heel bone to the toes. Because the plantar fascia runs across the bottom of the foot, any inflammation affecting it causes it to painfully contract, putting a lot of pressure on the heel. The best treatment is therefore to help the ligament stretch and relax, relieving pressure on the heel and reducing inflammation. When this is achieved consistently over a period of time, the ligament heals and the pain recedes.
Heel spur night splints and plantar asciitis night splints help ensure that the plantar fascia stays stretched and relaxed while you sleep. Involuntary contraction of the plantar fascia is common upon patients at night time, when they have no control over their feet. Night splints help ensure that the care and exercises you go through during the day are not undone by involuntary contractions at nights.
Cushi Heels provides the best night splints for feet on the market. Our anterior night splints and heel spur night splints help hold the plantar fascia and achilles tendon stretched overnight, ensuring your heel stays pressure free while you sleep. These excellent heel splints have been proven to cure plantar fasciitis and heel spurs in most patients, although the symptoms of these conditions may take longer to abate.
Cushi Heels' plantar fasciitis night splint comfortably positions the foot in a controlled flexion, gently and gradually stretching the plantar fascia and achilles tendon. This helps reduce muscle contraction and inflammation that cause the pain associated with these conditions. Our splint is light and sturdy and features three padded buckle straps that efficiently immobilize the foot. This night splint is also softly padded with breathable foam, keeping your foot cool and comfortable.
Our anterior night splint is especially designed to prevent passive plantar flexion during the night, which is usually the cause of the morning pain and discomfort that many heel spur and plantar fasciitis patients experience. This light, soft and breathable splint will allow you to sleep in comfort and is even fitted with non-skid material on the bottom to ensure safe movement during the night.
