With the latest data from the Orthopedic Research and Reviews stating that up to 16% of the US population is affected by plantar fasciitis, it is easy to understand why a lot of people are looking for information on the best and most effective plantar fasciitis night splints. It is one of the first suggestions from a physician when he or she confirms that you have plantar fasciitis, or PF, and it is also one of the most convenient ways to avoid the painful symptoms of this condition.
As the name suggests, this plantar fasciitis remedy is usually used at night and acts like a brace that will hold your foot with the toes pointed up at all times. It goes without saying that a night splint looks dorky and like something that Forrest Gump would wear. But there is a growing consensus among the medical community that this method is indeed effective and plantar fasciitis sufferers would agree: the fashion faux pas from a night splint is well worth it.
