Splints are used when there is an injury to some structure like bone, tendon, muscle, and we need to relieve it of as much weight and pressure as possible in order for it to heal properly and quickly.
Panosteitis isn't such a case, and doesn't really require much help other then occasional short course of NSAIDs when symptoms (pain, limping) exacerbate.
