Walking boot for posterior tibial tendinitis?

Hi i had a sprained ankle for a month and then went to the ortho doctor because it was getting worse. He then diagnosed me with "posterior tibial tendinitis". He gave me a lace up foot brace that goes maybe 2 or 3 inches above my ankle. Its supportive i defiantly walk better with it than without.. but still have trouble walking. He wanted me to do physical therapy 2-3 times a week for 6 weeks but see him back in a month since the last time i saw him...i saw him last tuesday i believe. I can not afford the physical therapy. I am also a stay at home mom to a 2 year old so staying off of it is not possible. My friends keep saying because of my situation maybe a walking boot would be better so it will heal quicker. Has anyone else had a boot for this problem? Is it worth calling him back to see if he would recommend that? Thanks
