I got lucky and don't have to wear a splint. However in my case, luck is a double-edged sword.
It turns out that the joint on top of my foot that's right above my toes is the source of my toe contracture problem. So instead of having to wear a splint, I have to endure a new kind of physical therapy. This time Mom has to apply firm but gentle downward pressure on that joint and at the same time gently stretch my toes and hold my foot in that position at least a minute at a time, two or three minutes or longer at a time if I will allow it.
I don't know which is worse, having to wear a splint or having to do another new kind of physical therapy. Luck is a double-edged sword.
