Many people sleep with their feet pointed down, which shortens the plantar fascia and achilles tendon. Night splints, keep your feet at a 90-degree angle, resulting in a constant stretch while you sleep. They can work well for pain, but disadvantages include that they can be bulky, and some people find them uncomfortable to wear.
