Relieve Plantar Fasciitis Night and Day with Proven Results
Recurring foot pain caused by plantar fasciitis can limit mobility and make even walking a painful task. The typical approach to reducing this inflammation pain is to stay off your feet, but there are better solutions. Clinical studies show that when a night splint is used with Accommodator insoles, patients see faster recovery and significant heel pain relief.1
Plantar fasciitis is defined as painful inflammation of the plantar fascia. The plantar fascia is the thick band of tissue running across the bottom of the foot that connects the heel to the toes. Plantar fasciitis causes sharp, stabbing pain that is usually the worst first thing in the morning when first stepping out of bed.
The Accommodator insole supports the arch so it cannot collapse or "flatten" during normal daytime standing, walking or running. When the arch collapses, the faciae, which tie the forefoot to the heel, are stretched, aggravating the plantar fasciitis pain. The FREEDOM Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint helps reduce severe heel pain by stretching the plantar fascia, foot and calf muscles that relax while sleeping, so patients are able to get out of bed with less pain. . The combination of a night splint and these insoles not only reduces pain, but also helps resolve the plantar fasciitis.
