Plantar fasciitis taping can help relieve the pain and swelling associated with plantar fasciitis. One of the reasons why plantar fasciitis taping works is that it restricts the permitted range the plantar fascia can move. By reducing the potential range for further injury caused by over-stretching, taping your foot creates a sort of brace or limitation to potential over-movement of your affected foot.
For one of the most effective plantar fascia taping technique, it is recommended that taping be used in two ways to ensure correct application. First, the therapy tape can be used early in the morning immediately as you wake up to protect plantar fascia throughout the day. Second, immediately before to starting any exercise tape can be applied to protect the plantar fascia during your exercise. Utilizing these two taping methods can help reduce that pain from potential over-stretching of your foot.
People that are already experiencing pain from plantar fasciitis understand that taping your foot the right way is most effective when employed with other plantar fasciitis treatments. Plantar fasciitis taping is just one of the many ways you can relieve plantar fasciitis pain as well as securing your foot to minimize further damage.
For best plantar fasciitis taping results, the feet should be cleaned using a non-moisturizing cleaner and completely dried. Please watch the plantar fasciitis taping video below for detailed instructions.
The effectiveness of taping the plantar fascia varies based on the severity of the patient’s symptoms. Sometimes plantar fasciitis taping will not help much in limiting plantar fascia pain but in many other cases plantar fasciitis taping may provide with some relief. Plantar fasciitis taping is most effective when used with other plantar fasciitis treatment methods as it is not likely to be a complete cure of the condition on its own. You can also get water-resistant tapes if that’s your preference.
