9. Plantar Fasciitis Series: Simplest Taping Technique EVER for Plantar Fasciitis
Two reason for tapping your foot.
You are thinking of trying an arch support insole, and you want to see if added support in the arch makes your foot feel better. Tape can provide added arch support. Good for individual who are loose jointed. See three quick tests (below) to see if you are loose jointed.
You would prefer not to use an insole in your shoe- or can’t- but still want increased arch support.
We suggest using two types of tape to avoid skin breakdown. First layer of tape against the skin should be a 2” wide CoverRoll Stretch. This tape will protect your skin from the second type of tape.
The second type of tape can irritate and even tear your skin. We recommend a 1 ½ inch Leukotape.
A link to amazon for these two types of tape is also provided below.
Before taping your arch make certain it is acceptable to your physician or podiatrist.
The advantage to this taping technique is in its simplicity. Watch the video for the technique.
