Q
What does a night splint do?

A

Night splints help improve calf muscle flexibility by flexing the foot.  This helps with plantar fascitis, achilles tendinitis, and heel spurs.  This releases pressure under the foot that a tight non-flexible calf muscle may cause.  (The toe strap also aids in added flexibility to the arch of the foot.)
