Is it torture or a real treatment?

  • This machine is attached to the foot and stretches your Achilles tendon while you sleep
    • This is a treatment device called a night splint. It is used to increase flexibility which in turn restores the function of the foot to reduce strain and pain from activities.  There are many designs of this available and the one which we believe works most efficiently while being the most comfortable has a grey padded interior, a more rigid exterior in the front of leg and top of foot and has a few straps which allow for adjustment to increase or decrease the stretch. There is also a toe splint available, which when tolerated adds a greater stretch across the plantar fascia (a large band on the bottom of the foot).
