Has night splints worked for anyone?

Posted by Joe on 2/06/98 at 12:47 (000260)

Who out there has had night splints work for PF? My doc says that
of all therapies studied, this is the most effective. Any anecdotal
stories? I may be imagining it, but my pain seems to have improved
a little, although at first, sleeping through the night was difficult.

Night Splints are helpful. In most cases PF has to be attacked from several directions at once (Splints, orthotics or casting, proper shoes, stretching, ice, anti-inflamitories, etc.). People who go from one treatment to another are often dissapointed when a combination of proper support while weight bearing and treatment while resting will produce results.
