Night Splint and knee pain

Posted by Tina H on 8/09/04 at 20:04 (157319)

My Dr. gave me the A-Force night splint which is not bad at all to wear in terms of comfort and it really lessens the morning pf pain. However this really aggrevates my arthritic knee. (I'm a stomache sleeper) I've tried putting a pillow under my knee but that doesn't help and because I'm post EWST I can't take Bextra, which I normally take. Has anyone else had this problem? I hate to stop using this splint but I don't want to have more knee pain either. I can't seem to find the name of that sock I've seen mentioned here. Where can I find that? Maybe that will not twist my knee as much. Thank you!! Tina
