Treatment Options and Buying Guide for Plantar Fasciitis Relief

by Aman Yadav on October 07, 2020

RehaCare stocks a full range of Plantar Fasciitis splints and supports. Our range has been developed to provide sufferers of this painful condition with many choices and options to achieve the best relief possible for their exact symptoms within their budget.

The first question to ask when choosing a plantar fasciitis relief is whether you are interested in daytime relief, night-time relief, or both. Then you will want to ask whether you want ice packs built into the support and if you want a rigid design or the use of adjustable tension straps.

Plantar Fasciitis Sleeve

The Nice Stretch Plantar Fasciitis Sleeve provides daytime relief of Plantar Fasciitis pain and is the first option most patients turn to when treating their condition. It utilises the X-Stretch pattern across the plantar fascia which provides much more relief than a simple compression sock.

For night-time relief, the X-Lite Night Splint is a light weight and universally sized splint to use while sleeping. It is very comfortable with a simple crisscross tension strap application. This would be the first choice for a night-time support for Plantar Fasciitis relief.

If you find both of those to be of interest and you want both day and night relief, the Total Solution Plantar Fasciitis Relief Kit contains both of those together in one convenient package.

X Lite Night Splint

The X Night Splint is like the X-Lite but comes in four different sizes from Small to Extra Large and contains a more supportive internal framework for a greater degree of tension and relief. It is applied using crisscross tension straps which can tightened to the extra pressure required for relief.

The next question to ask is whether cooling ice packs would benefit the condition. If you have a condition you feel would benefit from cryotherapy, you can try the Nice Stretch 90o or the Original, both of which incorporate a removable ice pack.

The Nice Stretch 90o comes with an ice-pack and has a fixed, right-angle heel in a rigid design. It incorporates a low-profile design with non-skid treads for walking. It is available in two sizes: Small/Medium and Large/XL.

The Nice Stretch Original comes with an ice-pack and comes in four sizes from Small to Extra Large and is similar to the X Night Splint but features a low profile, collapsible design which is more rigid than the X Night Splint but remains adjustable through tension straps.

Finally, the Nice Stretch Dorsal is a cool, comfortable and lightweight support which allows for more movement of the foot by using an anterior design in which the support travels down the front of the shin and foot. If you have tried other options without satisfaction, the Dorsal may be the solution.
