Strapping

Posted by Frank P. on 1/11/00 at 00:00 (014617)

For my PF, my Podiatrist has never mentioned 'strapping'. He has given me a night splint which I find rather uncomfortable after a few hours and remove it. Would strapping be as beneficial as a night splint and allow me more comfort for sleeping so that I would leave it on all night. I have to remove the night splint if I need to get up in the middle of the night.

Can someone tell me the procedure for strapping and what is used?

I'm not sure what you mean, but you might be referring to a guy who posted here recently about his method of wrapping the feet in an ace bandage to mimic the effects of a night splint. It doesn't last through out the night, but it may have the advantage of not being so awkward as these boots. Do a search for wrapping and strapping-- I think he used 'wrapping' or 'wrap' or use ace bandage as the word search.
