Night Splints – Night AFOs or KAFOs

Our night time versions of our bespoke AFOs or KAFOs are very well padded as they are often worn without socks. They can be produced with adjustable ankle joints to encourage greater range of movement as treatment progresses.

Plantar Fasciitis is one of the common conditions that can benefit from treatment with night splints;the fascia ligament is kept stretched while the patient sleeps.There are two main types of splint: the Dorsal and the Boot.The Dorsal has a hard plastic support that rides along the shin and top of the foot while the spine for the Boot’s brace is on the back of the leg and calf and runs under the foot.

There are advantages and disadvantages of both treatments; LOC’s  specialist clinician will explain the pros and cons before prescribing treatment.
