Doc question...Night splints

Posted by rich on 2/02/02 at 12:40 (072298)

Why do my toes go numb after a short time in a night splint. Used before on left foot with no problem and adjust the straps frequently. Only happening with right foot. Manage about thirty minutes at a time instead of all night.

The splint is too small or too tight. Maybe someone on the board can recommend a brand that fits better.
