For even more support (including additional wrist support), you can run a strip through the hand.

WRIST TAPING







Step 1

Have athlete spread hand and fingers wide. You want to make sure all muscles are contracted and tight. After spraying with adhesive, pre-wrap area from lower arm (just above the wrist) to the hand.



Step 2

Using 2” white athletic tape, apply one continuous strip around the wrist, through the hand, and back around the wrist. Be sure not to apply the tape too tightly around the crease between the thumb and the hand.



Step 3

You will now apply stirrup strips. The first is one straight stirrup from the palm side of the hand through the wrist. Apply slight flexion to the wrist.










Step 4

The next stirrup should run from the thumb side of the palm to the inside of the wrist. Be sure to maintain slight flexion of the wrist.



Step 5

The final stirrup should run from the inside of the palm (pinky finger) to the outside of the wrist.

For added support, you may repeat steps 3-5 and/or increase wrist flexion when you apply the stirrups.


Step 6

Continuing with your 2” white athletic tape, apply one continuous strip again around the wrist 2-3 times, through the hand, and back around the wrist. Be sure the athlete keeps the hand and fingers flexed to avoid circulation problems.
