Worn while sleeping or sitting, the Night Splint Sock gently stretches the plantar fascia, achilles tendon, and calf muscle. This is important in treating painful conditions such as plantar fasciitis and achilles tendonitis.
The degree of stretch is adjustable, gradually improving flexibility over time.
Runners have found the MacTherapy® Night Splint Sock great for race recovery and reducing Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness (DOMS).
One size: comfortably fits sizes 6-12
Easy to apply:
Unhook all the parts and pull the sock over the calf until the “D” shape ring is below the knee.
Fasten the upper non-elastic strap round the leg just above the calf.
Pull the toe strap through the “D” ring.
While your ankle and toes are relaxed use the strap to pull toes towards feeling a gentle stretch in the calf muscle.
Reattach the velcro.
Can be worn with or without a sock underneath.
Will require a period of weaning into. Start wearing for 1 hour and build by 1 hour daily until able to tolerate over night.
