I was having major heel pain in the middle of the night that would wake me up and keep me awake for a long time. This product helps. The pads work great when wearing footwear without proper support and the exercise ball is the perfect size. The splint will take a little while to get used to but after a few weeks my pain is gone.
My doctor gave me a boot for my Achilles tendinitis and I could not sleep in it. It was bulky and make my foot uncomfortably hot. This product is smaller but does the job just as well. It also isn’t as hot due to less coverage on my foot. It’s very helpful to sleep in a brace and I’m excited to find one I can actually sleep in!
I have plantar fasciitis and have been to a foot doctor . They gave me the traditional night splint ; however that splint did not fit correctly and made my call muscle tight. This splint is smaller and easier to sleep with at night. The extra wrap around strap helps keep it in place and adds more support. You can wear it with or without the strap . You have to figure out what level of tightness and hold you will need for the straps and Velcro. Follow the instructions when it says to ease into wearing it because it does take some getting used to. The video helps with showing how to put it on and once you have it, you are good to go. I wear mine when I’m sittting in the couch for a bit and then when I am ready to go to bed. I would suggest that you wear it with socks though to keep you from having to wash it all the time and it helps with any rubbing you have if you are a restless sleeper like myself ( because I fight for space with my dogs ). But over all, it’s much better and smaller than the one from the foot doctor. It does keep the foot straight and allows me to also get to my ankle for the tendinitis. I felt a difference after the first week of wearing it. I didn’t have to stand up gingerly out of bed and slowly stretch my foot to be ableTo walk .. but the key here is wear consistently . Don’t expect a positive change if you aren’t willing to put in the time and effort.
Product was delivered as described. Used product first night and felt better in morning. I have used for several days and feels better walking in the morning. I put splint on in living room before bed as you will need light to properly adjust and fit on foot. Used ball on bottom of foot and seemed to help. Pads are nice during day as my feet hurt all day. Product helps to reduce pain from plantar fasciitis.
My son has already put the bands on his feet and said they immediately felt better on his foot! I often have to rub peppermint oil to help his flat feet. This is just enough arch support. The spiky ball tickles his feet a bit too much but he knows it'll help.
