I have torn plantar fascia on one foot, prescribed me
Not everyone needs a night splint.
Hello and welcome,
Night splints, which keeps the foot/ankle in a flexed position, can sometimes be annoying to try to sleep in. Usually it is reserved for cases where the plantar fasciitis is not responding to the initial treatments of a rigid orthotic (to prevent foot torsion which can cause the little tears and inflammation) and exercises. I usually recommend 2 exercises right off the bat:
One exercise involves putting a towel on the floor and then scrunching it with your foot by curling the foot. The other exercise is a stretch: put your hands against a wall, and put one foot in front of the other, with your feet facing forward, so that you feel a stretch in the achilles of the back foot.
I couldn't find a video of the 2nd exercise, but here are good exercises you can do at home for plantar fasciitis. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kStuJAu0a20
I hope this information helps.
