Follow this easy kinesiology taping application video for ACHILLES TENDINOPATHY using SPORTTAPE FLEX to provide dynamic support and pain relief. To save time for this achilles' pain kinesiology taping application we've used pre-cut strips from our FLEX KIT for this video.
Cut the tape if necessary (don't forget to round the edges!)
Rip the ends of the I-Strip
Lay the base of the I-Strip with 0% stretch
Flex foot and apply the tape with 0% stretch
Rub the tape to activate glue
Prepare short I-Strip by using the Centre Technique and removing the backing paper
Stretch the tape to 50% and apply on point of pain
Lay the anchors with 0% stretch
Finish by rubbing the glue to activate the adhesion
That's it! Then just wait 30mins to an hour before exercise. SPORTTAPE FLEX can be worn for up to 7 days (through multiple washes & swims) however we'd always recommend reapplying or removing after 3 days for maximum effect.
