  1. Very careful with those plantar fascitis night splints, they are not designed to treat post-ATR patients and they can have a very detrimental effect by lengthening and extending the AT during post-operative recovery. They actually dorsiflex the foot, when the recovery position is plantarflexion.

  2. Many who have posted in this blog have found that they can do without the boot at bedtime from about the 4 weeks mark. For piece of mind I put a cushion between me my partner. Just keep your boot close by in case you need to leave the bedroom during the night.

  3. I use a night splint (starting in week 5) but I took out the toe wedge, lengthened the side straps, and put two heel wedges in. In the end it was slightly more plantar flexed than the boot and I slept much better. Now that I am down to 0 degrees in the boot and starting 2 shoes I have one heel wedge. I agree they come out of the package way too dorsiflexed for anyone until they are at 0 degrees or beyond in the boot.
