How does kinesiology tape work?

Correctly applied kinesiology tape lifts the skin to create a small amount of space between the muscle and dermis layers of the body. This space makes room for drainage and blood flow while taking the pressure off any swelling.

 

How do I apply kinesiology tape on my ankle?

  1. Make sure the area around your ankle joint is clean and dry. You’ll then need to measure out two pieces before application.
  2. Keeping the backing on, measure the first piece from your inner ankle, around the bottom of your heel, and up the other side to just above the outer ankle. Cut this piece and save it for later.
  3. Measure the second piece starting again from the inside of your ankle. This time, measure around the back of your heel and finish on the outer side of your foot.
  4. Remove adhesive backing and apply the tape to the measured areas – it needs to be firm, but not overly tight or loose.
