This application is for dorsal, or top of the foot pain. This may be from several causes- though here
is a technique you can try. Positioning for this technique is actually placing the foot in full plantar flexion (I am just going to use a towel, rolled up) to allow that full motion of the toes pointing down. What I am going to have you do is tear off an I-strip, and tearing off the end of the tape down
by the logo to form an anchor- take that paper backing off without touching the
adhesive on the tape if you can and place that as close to the toes as you can. Again, this is with the foot in full plantar flexion or pointing position and from here what you are going to do
is take the paper backing off the tape- going over the top of the foot- laying that down with no stretch. So neither the anchor, or the middle, or the
end of the tape has stretch on it, your foot is actually on stretch. Rubbing that tape on just to create a little friction,
a little heat, causing that tape to adhere. From here we can take the foot out of this position. bring that foot up- if you have some wrinkling on
the top of the foot of the tape that is actually what we are looking for. Let’s tear a second I-strip off of this roll, and from here what we are going to do is: we are going
to tear the paper in the middle. So once the paper is torn in the middle by stretching the tape you are going to evenly put tension on the tape. So using your thumb or forefingers to do that versus pinching the tape and pulling it- we want nice even pressure. Place that full-stretch tape across the top of the foot (full stretch) and go ahead and lay that down- ease off the tension
once you are to the side of the foot. From here you are going to lay that tape
down on the bottom of the foot- no tension on these tails, so again just taking the paper off- go ahead and rub that on with some
paper backing create a little heat, a little friction- that’s to cause that tape to adhere better to the skin. That is how you would tape for dorsal,
or top of the foot pain.

  1. You have two videos for pain on top of the foot with conflicting techniques. Could you please clarify which one is the correct one and why?

    In this video the vertical strip is not stretched and goes under a single lateral strip. In the other video the vertical strip is stretched and goes over two lateral strips.


  2. Both techniques should work. The newest video which can be found on our website is the latest version. We are always trying to find ways to make the applications as easy to apply while remaining as effective as possible. The latest version is the most up to date.
