Step 1

Place athlete on table. Spray bottom of foot generously with adhesive spray. Allow 1-2 minutes to dry. Pre-wrap entire foot and heel area. You will anchor the pre-wrap over the ankle joint.





Step 2

Using 3” elastic soft tape, apply one single rotation of tape around the ball of the foot just below the toes. Be sure not to pull the tape very tight, but also don’t leave it too loose.








Step 3

Using a split roll of 2” white athletic tape, you will now apply teardrop strips. Starting above the ball of the great toe, apply the tape down across the foot and behind the heel. Work the tape around the back of the heel and back up across the arch. Tear the tape over the top of the original starting position. Apply 3-4 teardrops.



Step 4

Once the teardrops are in place, cover the entire foot with 3” soft elastic tape. You will want to apply a basic heel lock (see ankle tape) to ensure the tape job stays in tact during athletic participation.




For athletes with arch and ankle problems, tape the arch first and then tape the ankle.

GROIN TAPING






Step 1

Have the athlete strip down to compression shorts or underwear. Then, ask the athlete to put majority of his or her weight on the affected leg with the knee bent to 35-50 degrees.






Step 2

Using a double-length, elastic bandage (ACE wrap or 3” soft elastic tape), begin the wrap just above the knee and work upwards and diagonally up the thigh. Pull tension on the inside of the leg (“pull and then wrap”). Overlap half of the width of the elastic wrap. Once you cover the groin area, angle the wrap above the opposite hip bone and behind and around the waist….
