Plantar Fasciitis (Heel Pain, Foot Pain) is a common, painful foot condition. Plantar Fasciitis occurs because of irritation to the thick ligamentous connective tissue that runs from the heel bone to the ball of the foot. Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis may be worse early in the morning after sleep. At that time, the arch tissue is tight and simple movements stretch the contracted tissue. As you begin to loosen the foot, the pain usually subsides, but often returns with prolonged standing or walking. Night splints are worn to keep the heel stretched out while you sleep. This prevents the arch of the foot from contracting at night which helps reduce the morning pain.

Excellent choice.. We bought a second one at a pharmacy nearby, no names mentioned but the quality of the brace wasn't even close to the one we purchased from Brace-mart.com..
We are ready to order a replacement of the brace today..
The best thing that I can say is that it works, and is also relatively comfortable to sleep with. I think it helped cure my Plantar Fasciitis.
The whole plantar thing is the worst feeling ever! This splint helped a little but at this point I'm ready to cut my foot off! Ugh!
Not the most comfortable thing to sleep with buy helped with my early morning plantar pain.
This particular night splint seems to be working well. The key to it is its comfortable.My heel feels much better in the morning.
The best product I've tried for keeping my foot up and able to get a good night's sleep. Would recommend this product to anyone with foot drop.
I like the quality and price of this item but the toe area is too small. Tried to wear it but woke up in pain from it squeezing my foot. I've been stretching it with a large bottle before I try it again. I'm a size 10 and I don't have a wide foot.
This brace works great for me. I have not had any problems with it. It is comfortable and does the trick! I would recommend this brace to anyone who has foot issues that need to have the plantar fasciitis stretched out through the night.
Works great. Very uncomfortable after a few hours because toe are is so tight. Otherwise, keeps my drop foot at bay, which makes foot and leg feel great.
