I’ve been having pain in the bottom of my heel for several months (Plantar Fasciitis). Although using my feet to roll a ball around on the floor, & even using ice packs has helped somewhat, this night splint has been just what I needed. The pain has been severely reduced when wearing it to bed — although it is a bit difficult to get used to at first, and when sitting for an extended time. This was recommended to me by my sister-in-law & I now recommend it as well. The only thing that I would change is that I bought a large boot — & now I wish that I had gotten the medium instead. However, this boot has helped me greatly.
I've tried several brands of compression sleeves to help with plantar fasciitis pain and these are by far the best! I used to wear a heavy plastic boot to bed to keep my foot straight and prevent my tendon from shrinking, but would wake during the night in a panic from the discomfort and weight of the boot, ripping it off. I've replaced the boot with these fantastic compression sleeves and now have peaceful nights sleep, and greatly reduced morning pain.
