Sharp knee pain with night splint

Posted by Renee S on 3/22/04 at 12:56 (147514)

Hi Guys,
I started wearing my night splint almost 2 weeks ago and I do some stretching. My question is: Could the night splint have hurt my knee in anyway? I woke up last night to a stabbing pain in my knee as if someone was stabbing me with an ice pick. That is the only night I didn't wear the splint because it was really hot and humid in my room. This morning I woke up with morning heel pain as well. How long does it usually take to see a difference when wearing a night splint? Thanks so much for your help!
