SHIN SPLINTS K TAPING GUIDE


FOLLOW THIS K TAPING APPLICATION FOR SHIN SPLINTS

All you need is a sharp pair of scissors, clean skin and 2 minutes of your time. Then watch and follow the video above (summary below). Remember to seek medical advice first and whether you're a seasoned taping pro or a first time taper, always fully assess before applying.

STEP 1

  • Put your shin on stretch (we found the above position the easiest for self taping)
  • Measure the tape down the length of your shin
  • Cut the tape (don't forget to round the edges!)
  • Rip the ends of the I-Strip
  • Lay the base of the I-Strip with 0% stretch

STEP 2

  • Apply down the shin with 0% stretch

  • Anchor the end with 0% stretch

  • Prepare short I-Strip by using the centre technique and removing the backing paper

STEP 3

  • Stretch the tape to 50% and apply over the point of pain
  • Lay the anchors with 0% stretch
  • Finish by rubbing the tape to activate the adhesion
  • Wait 30 mins before exercising
