Pigeon toe/ankle problem

I was born pigeon toed and wore special shoes when I was a baby. This never corrected the problem, in fact, seems to be getting worse in my 50's. When I sleep I can't keep my right ankle straight and curl my foot and toes under. When I awake, it's very painful when I try to walk until I get moving. It's been hurting during the day also. What can I do to keep my foot/ankle straight while sleeping? I have an elastic support but it doesn't help. Is there some sort of brace to wear to keep my ankle/foot straight?

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
