RockTape - Kinesiology Tape Instruction - Metatarsalgia

Author: RockTape Go Stronger, Longer

Here we’ll detail the steps on applying RockTape Kinesiology Tape for Metatarsalgia, a condition associated with activities like running and jumping. This application can reduce pain and inflammation in the area. Start with our standard 2 inch tape, and measure from just below the toes to an inch away from the heel. With 1 inch wide tape, measure a second strip around the foot, just below the toes.

Leave about a half inch between the ends. Round the tape’s corners to avoid catching on gear or clothing. From a seated position, stretch the skin by reaching toes towards the shin. With the first strip, tear an end then anchor just below the toes with the strip toward the heel. Pull away the release paper and apply down the foot with no stretch. Tear the center of the second strip to expose the adhesive. Then, with some stretch, apply to the ball of the foot. Lay down the edges with no stretch, then rub to activate the adhesive.
