Elite Ortho Advantage Premiere Adjustable Night Splint is designed to provide continuous gentle stretching of the Plantar Fascia and Achilles tendon. Plantar Fasciitis is when the band of tissue (ligament) that connects your heel bone to your toes gets strained and is the most typical cause of heel and arch pain. One of the longer tendons in your body, stretching from the bones of your heel to your calf muscles is the Achilles tendon.
Anyone that is on their feet for long periods of time are more susceptible to developing Plantar Fasciitis such as waiters, waitresses, construction workers, hairdressers, mail carriers, teachers and soldiers. Professional and amateur athletes commonly have injuries to their Achilles tendon. In addition, the elderly can develop this same problem due to the breakdown muscle tissue in the foot as we age. If not treated, this tearing and stretching can cause bone spurs as calcium is deposited where the fascia is torn away.
The Elite Ortho Advantage Premiere Adjustable Night Splint's lightweight design and low profile shell provide patient comfort while sleeping. During the night the fascia contracts and users often find that the first steps of the day are extremely painful. The gradual stretching discourages the natural contractions from occurring and helps enhance the healing process. The dorsiflexion is easily adjusted using medial and lateral hook and loop closures. The removable 5° foam forefoot wedge provides additional stretching as needed.
