Kinesiology taping Method

 

RIGID TAPING (RECOMMENDED)

 

Research findings suggest that TAPING may provide superior benefits concerning deceleration of inversion velocity and facilitation of dynamic neuromuscular protective mechanisms.

TAPING also offers a means to address the complex, interrelated bio-mechanical factors that are responsible for subtalar joint injury and rotary instability of the talocrural joint.

Thus, in the short video clip provided above, stirrup strips are well-positioned to provide maximum restraint to the inward displacement of the hindfoot within the frontal plane. The application of heel-lock and figure-8 components further encases the hindfoot, which offers additional resistance to the lateral distraction of the talocrural and subtalar joints within the frontal plane (Wilkerson, 2002.)
