Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common conditions affecting the foot. When painful, it can be extremely debilitating, even becoming too painful to walk. It is renowned for being a difficult condition to treat and normally required multiple forms of treatment combined to resolve the condition. One of the most popular forms of treatment is using a Plantar Fasciitis Brace at night time. This places the Plantar Fascia under a constant stretch and when used alongside Plantar fasciitis insoles they have been found to reduce pain levels and increase functional capacity in a study by Lee et al, 2012.

Best Plantar Fasciitis Braces

The best Plantar Fasciitis brace has an adjustable dorsiflexion angle that reaches over the toes to extend them as this extends the toes to place a maximum stretch on the Plantar Fascia. There should be cushioning under the sole of the foot to provide extra comfort and the brace should be a lightweight as possible to make it tolerable for wearing overnight.

In this article, we are going to provide a list of our 3 most recommended Plantar Fasciitis Braces

  • We have found the Sousia Plantar Fasciitis to work well as a light brace for mild symptoms
  • It has a solid base to support the foot and it lefts the toes as well as dorsiflexing the ankle which places the Plantar Fascia under maximum stretch

Do Plantar Fasciitis Braces work?

A study by Lee et al., 2012, found that Plantar Fasciitis braces are an effective treatment for Plantar Fasciitis when combined with insoles during the day. Wheeler, PC. 2014, found that the efficacy of a Plantar Fasciitis brace during the first week is poor due to lack of quality sleep. Participants in the study who wore a Plantar fasciitis brace for longer than a week had reduced morning pain and decreased pain during the day.
