night splint

Posted by SuzanneK on 4/22/00 at 00:00 (019157)

I have the blue Johnson & Johnson night splint that is not too bad. When my pod first gave (I mean SOLD) it to me, I thought it was only slightly less cumbersome than the walking cast I had worn with my bout of tendonitis 4 years ago. It took me about a week to get to the point where I could sleep all night without waking up every time I moved. I did persist and wear it all night each night, though. I think the night splint has been THE most effective treatment for me so far. I felt instant relief the first night and it has gotten better each night. I have been wearing the splint for almost 3 months.
