We've heard the concern before: "I can't wear the stretching splint all night" or "I put it on, but in the morning it's next to my bed." A stretching splint is so helpful for heel pain and increases function in your foot and leg. If you can't tolerate it at night it can mean a number of things. We recommend that if you can at least get to sleep with it on, leave it on as long as you can tolerate it. Add some time during the day using it to increase the time you are stretching those tight structures. If the only part of the splint that is uncomfortable is the toe strap, you can use the splint without it during the night and use the toe strap during the day.
