Orthotics for Plantar Fasciitis

Orthotics for plantar fasciitis are removable arch supports made from a digital foot scan. Pain with the first steps of the day can be markedly reduced by stretching the plantar fascia and Achilles tendon before getting out of bed. Night splints can be used to keep the foot in a dorsi-flexed position (toes pointing toward ceiling) during sleep to improve calf muscle flexibility and decrease pain on waking. All of these treatments are most effective when combined with weight loss, if needed.
