my doctor initially made me a plaster cast to use as a night splint that carefully molded to my feet and then pushed the toes up. it turned out to be too intense a stretch and tore my heel out. She now has made me another out of a soft fiberglass with less intense stretch but pushing the toes up. she said to start up for short times. I agree that the regular night splint boot dosn't seem to do it. I am still confused as to whether stretching the plantar is really the key because it often has irritated my foot more.
