Q
Does a night splint only work for heel pain?

A

Night splints are a common recommendation of our doctors, and heel pain is a common condition that they see.  Night splints, while most commonly used to treat plantar fasciitis are actually useful in a couple other conditions.  As this device aids in stretching the plantar ligament as well as the achilles tendon, its uses can also include Achilles Tendinitis and Sever's Disease, as these conditions also stem from a lack of flexibility.
