The 10 Best Night Splints

This wiki has been updated 29 times since it was first published in February of 2017. If you suffer from plantar fasciitis, then you know how agonizing those first steps of the day can be. That's because while you sleep, the muscles and connective tissues in your feet and calves tighten up, which leads to searing pain when you get out of bed. A high-quality night splint, however, will keep the fascia and Achilles tendon stretched, so you can get out of bed without suffering. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

March 20, 2019:

Added the BTUP Adjustable due to complaints that other models were so rigid that they could inhibit sleep. The soft elastic wraps on the BTUP are strong enough to hold everything in proper alignment and comfortable enough that it won't keep you up at night. The ProCare ProWedge also earned high marks for comfort, as it can offer all the support of a hard plastic shell while still being forgiving on your skin. The Futuro Sleep Support was removed due to concerns over the durability of its Velcro straps, as being a budget-friendly option isn't enough to justify poor craftsmanship.
