This is an excellent tape job for bruised or sore heels.

THUMB TAPING







Step 1

Have the athlete put the hand forward – as if to shake your hand. The athlete should have his/her thumb in a neutral position. Apply adhesive spray generously to thumb and wrist areas. Pre-wrap thumb, hand and wrist.



Step 2

Using 2” white athletic tape, apply anchor strip to wrist. Be sure you are laying the tape evenly over the wrist to avoid circulation issues later on. Split the 2” roll of tape and apply 1” wide anchor strip around thumb just below the middle knuckle.







Step 3

Continuing to use the split roll of white athletic tape, you will now form the thumb spica. Anchor the end of the strip on the back of the wrist and angle the strip around the palm, to the inside of the thumb and that back to the inside of the wrist. Tear the tape. Repeat these spica strips until you cover the entire base of the thumb (where the thumb meets the wrist). For additional support (but less mobility), go higher on the thumb. Be sure to overlap the tap by half of its width.




Step 4

Using 2” white athletic tape, apply anchor strip to wrist. Be sure you are laying the tape evenly over the wrist to avoid circulation issues later on. Split the 2” roll of tape and apply 1” wide anchor strip around thumb just below the middle knuckle.
