How to Tape a Foot
Following injury or surgery we may recommend taping to help control pain and alignment of the foot. The two most common are for bunions and injuries to the ligaments on the underside of the foot (plantar plate injury).
For bunion taping this is typically done for 4- 6 weeks following surgery with the main goal of keeping the alignment toe in corrected position.
For plantar plate injuries we often use this prior to surgery to prevent the toe and the ligaments from being over stress. Following surgery taping helps prevents excessive stress onto the repaired area.
