Posted by LarryH on 6/15/00 at 11:01 (021859)

Hi All

I see alot of references to night splinting but no descriptions as to what that is, where to you get them, how do they work, are they really effective for morning pain (walking when first getting out of bed)?? Can someone elighten me? Thanks.

Hello Hank,

NightSpints have helped many, including myself, lessen and then eliminate morning pain on first step.

Do a search in the Products section of this web site - or do a search on your favorite search engine.

Good luck!

Hi Larry....The night splints have been wonderful for
me. Their big and ugly ( definetely not for fashion)
but they really help with the morning pain...the first
few steps of getting out of the bed. I refer to them as
my ski boots....but......

They immobilize your feet while sleeping...ok...trying
to sleep with them on. LOL

I got mine at the doctors office...an ortho - surgeon.

I'm sure you can purchase them yourself..but I'm not
sure where.....

Hope you get em'....Stephanie S.

There were posts a while back, by john h I think, about a sort of rolls royce of non-custom splints, I think perhaps brownmedical.com or something like that. Otherwise, there are plenty for sale on line.
