Why Night Splits Don't Work For Plantar Fasciitis: Utilizing The Only Results-Based Solution That Extends Above The Knee

With over 3 million cases every year in the US alone, heel pain is most commonly caused by plantar fasciitis. Symptoms can include pain across the bottom of the foot or near the heel. The pain might also be at its worst in the morning. 

Plantar fasciitis is often associated with tight calf muscles. The medical community refers to tight calf muscles as “Equinus.” Studies show that over 80% of people with plantar fasciitis also have tight calves. Stretching the calves is a common therapy prescribed by doctors who are treating patients with plantar fasciitis.

The key to success with stretching to treat plantar fasciitis is to keep the leg straight while flexing your foot towards you.  While sitting in a chair, try flexing your foot up while your knee is bent. Now, keep your foot flexed and extend your leg. Feel the difference?

In the 1980s and ’90s, night splints were the go-to treatment for those suffering from plantar fasciitis because, theoretically, you could get a stretch while sleeping. Sadly, the idea was misguided because a night splint doesn't keep your leg straight during the night. Most people sleep on their side with their knees bent, therefore almost no meaningful stretching occurs. 

This makes the discomfort and annoyance of night splints totally not worth it! 

Fortunately, Dr. Patrick DeHeer developed the Equinus Brace and it has revolutionized how plantar fasciitis is treated. Here's how it works.

The brace uses an extension not present on normal night splints that goes above the knee. This extension keeps the legs straight for an optimal stretch. So, instead of having to do runner’s stretches for 30 minutes every day on each leg, or use an uncomfortable splint (all night), the patient can treat their plantar fasciitis in just one hour per day! The brace features variable stretch settings which provide a measurable and progressive approach. In addition, a special wedge is inserted under the big toe to target stretch the plantar fascia. 

With the Equinus Brace, your stretching routine works with your daily schedule instead of against it. It’s as simple as sitting down in front of the TV or with a good book and using the brace with the leg properly extended. 

If you or someone you love suffers from plantar fasciitis or equinus, contact IQ Med and find out about this revolutionary device that can get you healed and back in the game.

Very helpful

This brace has helped me keep a good stretch on my ankle, but it is a bit hard to get your ankle into the brace, as it is more narrow toward the heel. Hard to put on with back pain. I like that you can set the ankle dorsiflexion, and the strap above the knee is helpful.

Awesome Service & Product

Shipped quick and product better than expected. Thanks so much for the awesome service!

Back to Hiking. Grateful.

I suffered from recurring Plantar's Fasciitis on my right leg/foot for several years. I tried everything under the sun and read everything on the internet. I stretched, iced, had physical therapy, bought countless pairs of shoes and inserts. Finally, in the fall of 2016, I was at my local podiatrist for an unrelated problem. He actually discovered my PF without me saying anything, when examining my calf muscles. He explained to me that researchers had discovered that tight calf muscles needed stretching for much longer than people typically do when trying to treat it themselves, and he suggested the Equinus Brace. After the three month (one hour a day...easy-peasy!) treatment, increasing the angle of the brace each month, the PF is gone and I have not had any problems or pain at all! I am back to hiking on a regular basis and am so grateful! Thanks for a great product!

Thank You

I just wanted to say thank you for this brace! It has me walking without pain for the first time in two weeks and it has the added bonus of relieving my night time foot cramps!
My doctor, Christenson, proscribed this equinus brace after 6months of the awful painful heel spur and locked leg muscles! It really has worked!

Muscle Relief & Improved Performance

The Equinus Brace has really helped me get rid of the tight and achy muscles that contributed to my stress fracture. The brace helped relieve my tired muscles and stretch the entire leg, from toes to the thigh providing complete relief. After a few weeks, I noticed a change in my ballet performance.

Consistent Stretch = Better Patient Compliance

Many of my patients' foot pain comes from a tight achilles tendon. Prior to the Equinus Brace I would have patients manually stretch their achilles tendon, but 90% of the time it was done incorrectly. Once we had the Equinus Brace, we were able to provide a means for patients to properly stretch their achilles tendon and do it more consistently. Not only has the brace helped increase our patient compliance by 75%, but it also allows the stretching to be done correctly and controlled so as to avoid additional injuries and/or pain. I am really excited to be able to offer this brace to my patients!

Better than Night Splints

I just want to tell you how excited I am about your brace. One of my patients, who I have been treating for plantar fasciitis for months, is now for the first time showing signs of improvement. We tried injections, physical therapy, night braces, etc, etc. Nothing worked. Your brace is helping him.

Very Pleased!

We're using them a lot for our Achilles tendinitis patients we'll often have them in a soft cast and cam walker until pain-free, then we'll transition them into an ankle brace supplemented by daily active stretching and use of the Equinus Brace. Our patients are giving us positive feedback and we're seeing noticeable increases in their flexibility and range of motion after using the brace, so we are very pleased.
