...That the Bunion Aid?(R) splint is most effective while walking, but many users prefer to treat their bunion at night while sleeping.

...That movement is essential for a good night"s sleep?
Nightly movement is a built-in protective mechanism of the body because it prevents pressure points and helps distribute blood to all parts of the body. Up to twenty turns per night are normal. This frequent shifting keeps oxygen and blood circulating throughout the body which facilitates muscle repair, tissue growth, and restorative sleep.

...That a rigid night splint hampers natural movement of the entire body.
Legs and feet are quite active during sleep. Under normal conditions, the sleeper does not notice the activity of these extremities. Wearing a restrictive device like a rigid night splint limits the movement of legs and feet which compromises the natural movement of the entire body and disturbs normal sleep patterns.

A rigid night splint places permanent pressure on the big toe limiting blood flow to the surrounding tissue and depriving the rest of the foot from oxygen. This permanent pressure and tension may cause cramps in the muscles and pain in the extremities. View the official Bunion Splint Comparison Chart here.

...That a flexible hinged splint allows unrestricted movement at night.
Orthopaedists recommend unrestrictive movement at night by wearing a flexible hinged splint, such as the Bunion Aid?(R) Bunion Treatment Splint.
