Night splints not splinting all night?

Posted by Rosemary on 5/17/99 at 00:00 (006946)

My night splints are open in the front and held on with Velcro straps. I found there was too much movement of the feet during the night. Sometimes heels were on the outside of the splint?? Sometimes the Velcro came off in the night. I solved that problem by attaching the Velcro and then wrapping the entire splint starting at the toes and working up with very wide Ace bandages. All the aggrevating Velcro straps get wrapped inside the bandage too. It works great for me.
