Effectiveness of adjustable dorsiflexion night splint in combination with accommodative foot orthosis on plantar fasciitis
Winson C. C. Lee, PhD, et al.
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.
