ANKLE STABILITY STRAPPING GUIDE


FOLLOW THIS TAPING GUIDE TO LEARN HOW TO STRAP AN ANKLE

Always seek medical advice before attempting this application and whether you're a seasoned taping pro or a first time taper, fully assess before applying. Then just equip yourself with some Zinc Oxide tape, clean skin and follow the video above (see summary below).

STEP 1

  • Using Zinc Oxide 3.8cm (Tan is preferable due to the joint being weight bearing)
  • Lay the anchor at lower calf, allowing space for muscle expansion as to not restrict blood flow

STEP 2

  • Ensure the foot is in a neutral position.

  • Stirrup the ankle from medial to lateral under the heel
  • Repeat 2-3 more times, ensuring to avoid taping over the base of the 5th metatarsal

STEP 3

  • For extra support angle the tape under the heel so that it both starts and finishes on the medial side, creating a '6' shape
  • Re-apply the anchor
