Pro11 Day and Night Foot Brace Splint
Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition that can continue for many months – even with continuous treatment. Fortunately, you can reduce pain and promote healing of plantar fasciitis by reducing pressure on the plantar fascia and stretching it out at night. This can be achieved with the Pro11 Day and Night Foot Brace Splint, a set of a night splint and a day brace designed to provide relief from plantar fasciitis day and night.
Who Can Benefit from the Pro11 Day and Night Brace Splint?
This splint and brace have been designed specifically for the treatment of plantar fasciitis. By providing support during the day and flexion at night, this brace-splint combo provides pain relief and treatment around the clock.
What is Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is a disorder where the ligament that runs underneath the sole of the foot (called the plantar fascia) thickens. This is usually due to a recent tear or injury to the ligament, but may be caused by an accumulation of small injuries over a long period of time. This condition causes pain at the bottom of the foot and the heel, particularly in the morning, and can take months to heal (even with proper treatment).
How a Splint Helps to Treat Plantar Fasciitis
This splint, designed to alleviate pain from plantar fasciitis, keeps the foot fixed at a slight angle to stretch out the plantar fascia (the ligament that supports the arch). This relieves morning foot pain and promotes healing of plantar fasciitis with extended use.
How a Day Arch Brace Helps to Treat Plantar Fasciitis
A day arch brace increases comfort and alleviates pain by lifting the plantar fascia when you're on your feet. This redistributes pressure when you walk or stand, which reduces strain on your plantar fascia to prevent pain and further injury of the ligament.
About the Pro11 Day and Night Foot Brace Splint
The Pro11 Brace cups the arch and fastens across the top of the foot with velcro straps. It protects the arch from strain and raises the plantar fascia to relieve pain and tension.
The Pro11 Night Splint straps around the foot and the ankle to keep the foot flexed. This helps to keep the plantar fascia stretched during sleep, which relieves morning pain and stiffness and aids healing of the ligament.
Sizing of the Pro11 Night and Day Foot Brace Splint
This day brace and night splint set is available in one universal size. This should fit individuals with calf widths of up to 44.45cm (17.5 inches).
