Below is a very useful video showing a foot taping we use in the clinic.
For this you will need:
|38mm brown sports tape - you can purchase this from the clinic or from your local pharmacy or supermarket|
|A sharp pair of scissors|
Some key things to note:
|Have the person pull their foot back at 90 degrees at the ankle to the leg and also pull their toes back to their shin|
|You don't have to apply tension to the tape or twist the foot, just put it on firmly in the directions shown in the video|
|The tape can be left on for showering - just let it dry a bit before putting shoes on. It may come off if you are swimming|
|It can lose its effectiveness after 3-4 days|
|Washing the foot is advisable between taping sessions|
|If it gets itchy or uncomfortable remove straight away, wash the foot and call your Podiatrist|
