Sleeping in walking boot?

Posted by Holly L. on 7/11/03 at 12:32 (124105)

I was wondering is it suggested to sleep in the walking boot or should the foot get aired out in the night?

Sincerely,

Holly L.

Holly:

Some use the walking boot as a night splint. You may want to consider having a separate night splint for sleeping though.
