I sprained my foot several weeks ago. I also have arthritis in the ankle. My foot is very swollen and hurts. I have used ice and Tylenol. Cannot use aspirin. My toes go numb. Should this type of accident not be wrapped in some way? I do not mean a cast. Thanks for your help. I love to walk but this is very painful. Thank you.

Worn daily for a few minutes to several hours, the night splint, over time has been clinically proven to reduce the pain and discomfort of plantar fasciitis and other overuse injuries of the lower leg.
