Night Splints?

Posted by Salina on 2/11/00 at 00:00 (015750)

Is there anyone that has had success with the night splints? When I first got this problem, both my feet were in so much pain that I could only keep the splints on for 1/2 hour. My right foot was so bad that it wouldn't even be able to move into that position by the end of the day. Now I am able to wear them for longer, sometimes all night. But I cannot tell if they actually help. I have never had a sharp pain in my heel or anything like that. I don't have that first morning pain that I hear about. So I don't get any instant feedback on whether these things are working or not. Does anyone think that I could get the same effect from stretching my feet in the morning?
