Orthopedic Physicians, Podiatrist, Family Practice Physicians, and Physical Therapist often prescribe Universal Posterior & Dorsal Night Splints to assist in the treatment of plantar fasciitis. The Dorsal Night Splint reduces morning foot pain by preventing nighttime foot drop that leads to muscle tightness and painful stretching of the plantar fascia. This night splint is designed for wear during sleep or inactivity. Because the brace is applied to the dorsal aspect or top of the foot, there is no need to remove it when walking short distances. The Adjustable Posterior Night Splints are designed to provide a more aggressive stretch as the patient sleeps and should be removed before walking. Clint Orthopedics has available both Dorsal Night Splints and Posterior Night Splints which are available for both men and women in most sizes.
