Effectiveness of adjustable dorsiflexion night splint in combination with accommodative foot orthosis on plantar fasciitis

Winson C. C. Lee, PhD, et al.

Figure 2. Dorsiflexion night splint in use.

Plantar fasciitis commonly occurs in older people. Successful orthotic treatments can avoid more invasive approaches like steroid injection. However, orthotic treatments are not always successful. This study suggests that using foot orthoses with adjustable dorsiflexion night splints is more effective than foot orthoses alone in relieving foot pain in plantar fasciitis.
