How To: Easily tape an ankle

Easily tape an ankle

This video shows how to wrap an ankle with athletic tape. First he sprays a little spray adhesive on the ankle and sticks a couple thin pads on places that are prone to blistering. He then wraps the foot and entire ankle with a prewrap to protect the skin and cover the hair so that the tape won't irritate the skin. Then he begins by taping two anchors around the top of the ankle, and putting a piece of tape down the side from the anchors, under the heel, and up the other side like a stirrup, and another shorter piece that goes around the back of the ankle. He repeats these steps so that there are three layers. This gives a stable base to the tape job. Then he wraps the tape around the ankle and under the foot several times before wrapping the rest of the leg and the foot. Using this method will result in a firm and supportive ankle tape job.
