Follow this easy kinesiology taping application video for PLANTAR FASCIITIS using SPORTTAPE FLEX to provide dynamic support and pain relief. To save time for this Plantar Fasciitis kinesiology taping application we've used pre-cut strips from our FLEX KIT for this video.
Measure the tape from the ball of the foot to the top of the Achilles Tendon
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 your foot
Apply the I-Strip with 0% stretch up the foot and over the Achilles Tendon
Anchor the end with 0% stretch
Rub to activate glue
Prepare a short I Strip using the Center Technique & remove the middle piece of backing paper. Stretch the tape to 50% and apply over the point of pain. You want to create a "cupping effect under the base of the foot".
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 5 days (through multiple washes & swims) however we'd always recommend reapplying or removing after 3 days for maximum effect.
