Plantar fasciitis is a painful and debilitating condition that occurs when the plantar fascia – a ligament that runs along the underside of the foot – thickens. This usually occurs as a result of overuse or strain on the ligament, and results in pain in the bottom of the foot and the heel. Plantar fasciitis can take months to heal – even with continuous treatment – and can keep you from exercise and sports until fully-recovered.
Fortunately, you can reduce plantar fasciitis pain and promote recovery with the Pro11 Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint Sock. This lightweight, easy-to-fit splint sock prevents the shortening of the plantar fascia to reduce pain, increase mobility and encourage healing of plantar fasciitis. It is suitable for most individuals with plantar fasciitis, and can be worn during the day or at night for greater convenience.
Who Can Make Gains with the Pro11 Plantar Fasciitis Splint Sock?
This lightweight and durable splint sock is designed specifically for the treatment of plantar fasciitis. While safe for use by most individuals, the use of this splint sock may lead to complications for those with peripheral neuropathy, peripheral artery disease, a history of a peripheral arterial bypass grafting, skin infection or pulmonary oedema from congestive heart failure.
How Wearing a Splint Helps Plantar Fasciitis
Using a splint is one of the most effective treatment methods for plantar fasciitis. A splint designed to treat plantar fasciitis keeps the foot fixed at a 90° angle to stretch the fascia ligament. This helps to reduce pain and promotes healing, and has been shown to improve mobility and relieve the symptoms of plantar fasciitis with extended use.
The Benefits of a Compression Sock for Plantar Fasciitis
A splint sock not only keeps the foot flexed to prevent shortening of the plantar fascia, but also provides compression to increase blood circulation. This provides the tissue with more oxygen and nutrients and promotes the removal of waste and toxins – both of which help to speed up recovery.
Sizing of the Plantar Fasciitis Night Splint
This sock is available in one universal size, which should fit users with feet in UK sizes 6 - 12. It is provided with a fitting guide to ensure proper use and maximum benefit.
