People who’ve been following this blog a while might know that I got given some new night splints a bit ago. These are to wear when I’m in bed or just resting in the house. I like them. I personally find them really comfortable and can feel the stretch when I’ve had them on.
However, I could never manage to wear them for an entire night because I haven’t yet managed to be able to get them on for myself, and they didn’t have walking grips on the bottom. This meant that I had to take them off if I needed to get up in the middle of the night, and kept them off because I didn’t want to wake my mother up to get her to put back on again.
However, at my last appointment with my orthotist, he offered to put some grips on the bottom for me if I brought them back in to make this easier.
I’m really excited about this because I’m hoping that I’ll be able to move around in them easily so I’ll be able to wear them for longer.
It will be a little while before I get them back, but I’m already looking forward to it.
I’ll let you all know how it goes as soon as I can.
